BMW’s i3 to Be All Electric with Plenty of Driving Range

Posted 6/10/19

Not that long ago, BMW offered its i3 Electric with a range extender option that extended its driving difference with a diesel engine backup.

Thanks to battery improvements, that gas fueled extension is now a thing of the past.

“BMW has dropped the range extender for European buyers now that the 2019 i3 has a larger-capacity 42.2kWh battery instead of the old 33kWh unit,” Engadget reports. “The new EV provides 34 more miles of range (193 miles on the WLTP testing cycle) than the previous model.”

That’s good news for our car mechanics. We like the idea of driving electric vehicles to do our part to save the world from climate change, but we also like to get the heck out of Cincinnati too. Thanks to technology improvements, we can drive further on one charge, so we’re no longer tethered to wherever we can get a charge. The future is bright, and it’s electric!

How to Find a Trusted Car Mechanic in Cincinnati

How do you find a car mechanic you can trust in Cincinnati? One of the most valuable tools on hand is word of mouth. Talk to your friends, coworkers, family, and see who they trust. What have been their experiences, whether good or bad? Has a mechanic ever suggested a more economical approach, even if it means less money for them? That’s a sign they are more interested in repeat business rather than just this single repair. Next, check out their Better Business Bureau rating. Read online reviews. Make sure all their work is certified and guaranteed. And don’t forget to visit their shop. You can tell a lot about a business by how clean and organized its work stations and waiting rooms are.
