Special editions of BMW i3 isn’t something new for us – we had Shadow Sport Limited Edition, Fire Orange Edition and…only God knows how many editions of i3 exist.

However, even how different i3 editions might look, they do have one thing in common – specs.

Yeap, all of the changes are only visual, no changes under the hood.

Sad, but that concerns every model…except Contractor Edition of i3 model.

‘A bird of a different feather’

In an effort to broaden the appeal of the all-electric BMW i3, the Munich-based auto manufacturer decided to develop a special edition of i3 model with features oriented specifically to independent contractors.

The Makita Contractor’s Edition features an all new electric power take-off device and an external plug that allows a variety of Makita’s Flex Drive tools to connect and take advantage of the i3’s powerful electric motor.

Tools such as drills, reciprocating saws and sanders can connect via a cable-driven outlet hidden under the roundel in the front of the vehicle.

A belt-driven transmission offers infinite speed variation via a foot pedal switch.

Some more information

The models will only be offered in white color and will be equipped with supports for aluminum ladders.

More special editions

Depending on the success of the special edition, future editions may be released specific to other markets.

Talks are rumored to be in progress with Oster on an all-green Margarita Maker edition.
