The all-new BMW i3 will be available to customers in Ireland from November 16, 2013, with a Personal Contract Hire offering from €495 a month.
Ian Robertson, Member of the Board of Management, Sales and Marketing BMW, said: "The BMW i3 heralds the dawn of a new era for individual mobility and for the BMW Group.
"True to a genuine BMW, the BMW i3 has strong emotional appeal, outstanding product substance and a guarantee of sheer driving pleasure.
"With this leading-edge vehicle and compelling price, we will provide customers with an attractive offer for electromobility."
Customers entering into an agreement for an all-electrically powered BMW i3 can embark on a world of electric motoring by signing up to a 36-month Personal Contract Hire and paying an initial €5,999 deposit (which includes up to €10,000 contribution from VRT rebate and SEAI grant) followed by monthly payments of €495 and contract mileage of 36,000km.
Those customers who wish to buy the BMW i3 outright can do so from €34,010 (OTR).
The price for the range extender version, which features an additional 650cc two-cylinder petrol engine to maintain the battery charge and extend the maximum range to an approximate 300km on one tank of fuel, will be €41,040 (including up to €2,500 from VRT rebate and €5,000 from SEAI grant).
