If there’s one thing that BMW loves to play with, it’s new, innovative ideas. If you’ve been looking for a BMW i8 for sale or a BMW i3 for sale, now might be the perfect time to pick one of them up as BMW has recently released a smartphone app that pairs up with the i8 and i3 vehicles.

This app, which has been in development for a while, gives BMW owners a range of useful information about their vehicle. This can give them the ability to do things such as improve driving styles, maximize the car’s driving range, and overall boosting the efficiency of the vehicle. When you make the most out of your i3 or i8, you save time, money, and electricity.

Features Within the BMW i Remote App

Not sure if your car will have enough power to reach the next charging station? Your phone will let you know. Want to schedule a charge? Start one? End one? You can handle those on the app as well. You can also connect with the rest of the BMW i community so you can share the statistics of your car and look at the stats of others, such as CO2 output and overall fuel usage. You can find out the efficiency of your car and maybe find out how others are utilizing their driving style to their advantage in order to make their efficiency even better.

The app itself is free, though you do need to sign up at BMW Assist for it to work in the car. It’s only available for the i3 and i8 as of right now, but as BMW extends its electric car family, it wouldn’t come as a surprise if that changed in the future. The i Remote is also available through both Apple’s App Store and Android’s Google Play Store.

So the next time you’re in the mood to seek out a BMW i8 for sale or a BMW i3 for sale, don’t forget to download the app as well and have fun!
