The BMW Store offers drivers a glimpse into the future of high-performance driving with its newest member of their fleet, the i5. Packed with the latest tech and dual electric motors, the i5 not only brings power but ushers in a new plush and intelligent design to make driving seem like a brand-new experience.

“The i5 is full of great technology,” says The BMW Store’s client advisor, Jonathan Kumar. “Our Highway Assistant includes the optional new Active Lane Change with eye activation, where you simply tap and then look in the mirror in the direction you want to change.

“The car also includes the BMW personal assistant, which can do almost anything you need in the vehicle, including rolling down windows or adjusting your climate controls.”

The i5’s Highway Assistant package can drive hands-free up to 85 mph, and the BMW Curved Display that spans the entire dashboard lets drivers see their blind spots and any other potential hazards on the road.

In addition to the futuristic tech inside the car’s cabin, the i5’s electric engines leave traditional cars behind when it comes to speed and power.

“Electric vehicles provide a more luxurious and refined driving experience with minimal noise transmitted into the cabin,” says Kumar. “And one of the best things about electric vehicles is the immediate power. There’s little to no need to wait for the engine to reach its power band.”

He notes that the 0-60 Mph acceleration of the i5 is 3.7 seconds.

Despite the many benefits of electric vehicles, Kumar understands why some customers hesitate to switch.

“Battery range anxiety is a common concern for many,” says Kumar. “Most of the time, you don’t need to drive as far as you think. The average daily commute in the U.S. is only 16 miles, which is well within the range of your BMW. But even if you need to go on longer trips, your BMW has a smart navigation system to plan your route with charging stations along the way.”

The i5 has a range of up to 295 miles, and BMW gives drivers two years or more of free charging at Electrify America stations across the country. Drivers can also use the My BMW App to plan charging and departure schedules and adjust the cabin’s climate control from their smartphone.

In addition to the i5’s premium features, drivers will also get The BMW Store’s excellent customer service.

“The BMW Store is more than a dealership,” says Kumar. “We are a family of passionate BMW fans who truly care about our customers. We elevate the BMW experience even further by offering drivers a free car wash, valet service and more when they stop by.

“And, unlike many other automakers, BMW includes an eight-year/100,000-mile warranty on electric car batteries. This includes your standard BMW warranty and further coverage can be added if desired.”
