Eve.Ryn tunes the BMW i3 in Japan

Article by Christian A., on October 7, 2014

Although it sounds kind of stupid, Japanese tuning company Eve.Ryn decided that the BMW i3 needs some design upgrades and decided to improve the German electric car. The exterior changes are quite consistent and include a new front bumper with carbon fiber inserts and large air inlets, flared wheel arches, new side sills, a rear roof spoiler as well as a new rear bumper with integrated air diffuser.

In addition, a new set of wheels was installed, which make the vehicle look even sportier. There are no details regarding any performance upgrades, which means we will find the same electric motor that produces 170 hp (125 kW) and 250 Nm (184 lb-ft) of torque.

Power it sent to the rear wheels and the BMW i3 accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 7.3 seconds, while top speed is 93 mph or 150 km/h. BMW also offers a Range Extender which consists in a 605cc two-cylinder four-stroke petrol engine that generates 34 hp.

The petrol engine is mounted next to the electric motor above the rear axle. The i3 offers a range of 80-100 miles (129-160 km), but the Range Extender increases the range to 160-186 miles (257-300 km).
