Both appeared in the same year. They are pure electric cars, however one with an optional Range Extender. This refers to the BMW i3, the lends itself of course for comparison with the E-up!. One thing first, the latter is despite larger battery capacity 8,000 euros cheaper.
Now the BMW fans will reply that the up! is well a small car and the BMW does not. It is true, on the back seat of the BMW is considerably more space. However, the e-up! is more lightweight, although the body of the i3 consists only of aluminum and carbon fiber. Of course, one must also evaluate the design.
