Interview with a 2017 BMW i service technician

With the BMW i3 and i8, buyers in Ottawa get a vehicle that is fuel-efficient, eco-friendly, and fun-to-drive, all of that wrapped in a stunning package that turns heads everywhere you go. That said, there are significant differences between the i3 and i8, as I am sure you noticed as soon as you saw both cars!

Regardless of which model you are looking at, you are probably interested in knowing a little more about how BMW i models are serviced, and what are the added implications of owning a BMW electric vehicle. That’s why we turn it over an Elite BMW i service technician who is here to help answer all of your questions.

When it comes to maintenance, are there significant differences between servicing a BMW i3 and i8 compared to other traditional BMW vehicles?

Not really. Most new electric vehicle owners find that it is actually a lot easier to service a BMW I vehicle. People think the technology is complex and therefore that means that it will be more complex to maintain, but it is quite the contrary. 

In your experience, is BMW’s electric technology reliable?

The technology is proven, not only with BMW vehicles, but also with all electric vehicles. An electric vehicle like a BMW I will be as reliable as any vehicle, and often times more so because although their components are more complex, there are less of them to break.

When someone buys a BMW i3 or I8, they probably want to have a home charging system. Is it a simple process to set something like that up at home?

Absolutely, and we walk you through the process to help make it even easier.
