The changes have been decided due to the issues that the present i3 REX has had so far, concerning the loss of power, when the driver hit the pedal in an attempt to pass a truck on a hill highway.

The BMW i3 REx began to lose power without any alert, the car remaining exposed out in the lane. Fortunately, the i3 REx recovered its power quick and managed to control its position on the road.

Thus, a software update has been decided, with the first one coming at the end of the first quarter, 2015, becoming standard on all 2015 models, while the charge port, unlocking the J1772 nozzles, will arrive further on.
