Just days ahead of going on sale and with the first shipment of cars already waiting on the docks, the all-electric 2014 BMW i3 EV has been given its official fuel economy ratings by the EPA.
At 124 MPGe, the BMW i3 is the most efficient car on sale in the U.S. today.

At 124 MPGe, the BMW i3 is the most efficient car on sale in the U.S. today.

At 81 miles per charge, the BMW i3 EV’s range isn’t anything to get particularly excited about. In fact, there are plenty more cars on the market today that achieve a higher EPA-approved range per charge, including the 2014 Chevrolet Spark EV, 2014 Nissan LEAF, 2014 Honda Fit EV and of course, Tesla Model S to name a few.

But while those cars may be able to travel further per charge than the luxury German four-seater, the i3 wins hands down when it comes to energy efficiency.

Rated at an official fuel economy of 124 MPGe, the BMW i3 is the most efficient car ever sold in the U.S. Ever. Period.

For those who are interested, MPGe — or mile per gallon equivalent — is the distance an electric car can travel on the same amount of energy contained in one gallon of gasoline.

If we ignore purchase or lease costs, this means that the BMW i3 uses less energy than any other full-size electric car on the market today. And that equates to lower fuel costs, or in this case, a lower electricity bill
