BMW i3 REx receives its official EPA fuel economy estimates

While BMW and the EPA have yet to officially release the fuel economy figures for the all-new BMW i3, AutoBlog recently stumbled on the latest and official window sticker for the i3.

In said window sticker–or Moroney, if you want to call it–the 2015 BMW i3 REx, denoting the equipped range extender, is capable of up to 117 MPGe or miles-per-gallon-equivalent. Once the EV battery supply is depleted, the BMW i3 can achieve up to 39 mpg on the combined cycle. For comaprative purposes, the Fiat 500e can achieve 116 MPGe while the Honda Fit EV is capable of up to 118 MPGe.
