What was once a niche, the electric car industry has become more and more mainstream every year; and with new cars entering the market not only from luxury manufacturers but also from more affordable car makers, the choices now are flooding the market!
Head this way as we go through the Top 5 electric cars in Cyprus right now!
1. BMW i3
BMW has played a key role in bringing electric cars into the market since its debut, and the i3 model has proved that electric cars can also be fun and exciting to drive thanks to its unique design, amazing performance, and innovative carbon fiber and aluminium construction.
So get in and enjoy the ultimate experience of one of the best electric cars in Cyprus!
The BMW i3’s cutting-edge technology is ideal to accommodate your daily life, from city drives to new excursions in the countryside and thanks to a wide range of seat adjustments it's easy to get comfortable.
The car is quite spacious, and while it doesn't take up much space on the road, it feels much larger on the inside. That's due to a spacious interior and a higher seating position than many city cars, which provides you a superb view of the road.
Rear parking sensors come standard, while the Park Assist option adds front sensors, a rear-view camera, and an automatic self-parking system.
In addition, every i3 comes with full LED headlights as standard, which produce a brighter, wider, and more uniform light than halogen bulbs.
The i3 has a 10.25-inch touchscreen in the center of the dashboard, as well as sat-nav, DAB radio, Bluetooth, and a USB port on all models.
The sat-nav was also designed to make electric driving easier; it can direct you to charging stations and even alert you if a location is beyond your current range.
Stability control and 6 airbags are included in the i3, but if you want technologies like active cruise control, automated emergency city braking and road sign recognition, you'll have to spend extra for the Driving Assistant Plus package.
If you’re looking for an innovative, elegant, enjoyable, and pleasant electric car in Cyprus then the BMW i3 is your go-to car! With powerful performance and strong street presence, this car offers an interesting driving experience that is far removed from more traditional city cars!
2. BMW iX3
The BMW iX3 represents a shift in direction for the German automaker; at least when it comes to electric cars. A solid plastic grille, aerodynamic alloy wheels, and a sprinkling of blue accents are the only aesthetic differences between this and the petrol/diesel models.
BMW's iDrive infotainment system is also standard in the iX3. The 10.3-inch touchscreen display in the centre of the dashboard can be controlled using a secondary rotary controller located between the front seats. When you're on the go, the latter is far less distracting, as is the natural speaking voice control feature, which works remarkably well.
As far as the car’s space is concerned, the back seats are practical and large enough for adults, with plenty of room to stretch out, and the outer rear seats can also be reclined for a more laid-back seating position, a feature not seen in the iX3's main competitors.
The highest charging rate of the BMW iX3 is 150kW, which means a 10-80% charge can be finished in just 30 minutes.
In addition, Premier Edition and Premier Edition Pro are the only two trim levels available. The former has 20-inch aerodynamic alloy wheels, a motorized tailgate, a panoramic sunroof, and heated front leather seats, while the Premier Edition Pro adds a head-up display, auto-dipping headlights, and keyless entry.
Despite the fact that it is built on a petrol basis, the all-electric BMW iX3 marks itself as a practical family SUV for driving around the city and the motorway and above all an excellent choice for an Electric car in Cyprus.
