With BMW i3 production ending soon, should you buy a used example?

It is hard to believe the i3 came out 9 years ago because it still looks like new, but despite that BMW will end production of the i3 in a few months time.

The i3 was different from anything BMW had made and it still stands out today both on the inside and on the outside. It was available in an all electric version as well as a version equipped with a range extender.

For a compact car, the i3 was expensive. However, if you go looking for an i3 on the used market you can find used examples for much less than new. Currently prices on Autotrader UK start at about £12,000, making it an interesting used car.

Battery degradation is a concern for used electric cars, but BMW guarantees a 70% capacity after 8 years.
