The 2022 BMW i4 electric coupe is one of the newest additions to the BMW family, and it represents a sea change in what an automobile can do.

Read on and let your team at New Century BMW compare the BMW i4 vs. Tesla Model 3. We’re your destination for everything from sales to finance.

BMW i4 vs. Model 3: Lifestyle Changes

A common question among potential new electric buyers is “how will my life change when I go electric?” One major advantage of the BMW i4 vs. the Tesla Model 3 is that you don’t have to change your busy Arcadia life as much.

For one, Tesla uses proprietary chargers that carry exclusive Tesla branding, meaning the charger you find at your local grocery store might not work with your Tesla. There’s an expansive EV charging network for everyone else. In addition, the unique nature of Tesla’s construction means you might not have a convenient service center near Pasadena. Meanwhile, we’re right here in Alhambra and ready to fix your BMW.
