The BMW i3 is the future of mobility with all of the performance of a BMW. You need a hidden trailer hitch that will be able to keep up with your innovative electric machine. Whether you’re conquering concrete jungles or on a long road trip, the 2017 BMW i3 is ready to Get Out and Go places others cannot.

The 2017 BMW i3 just got more versatile!

Torklift Central is happy to announce that we now offer a hidden EcoHitch for the latest addition to the BMW line: the 2017 BMW i3.

This i3 hitch is designed to complement the compact underbody airflow and aerodynamics of the BMW i3. The only part of the hitch that is visible is the receiver, providing higher level of ground clearance than most aftermarket trailer hitches available. This gives you a highly-engineered hitch that’s also eco-friendly like your i3, helping you get in touch with nature.

The BMW i3 EcoHitch is perfect for bike racks and cargo trays!

Available in 1¼-inch and 2-inch applications with 200 pounds tongue weight and 2,000 pound towing weight, the 2017 BMW i3 EcoHitch is compatible with all your favorite hitch applications including cargo trays, bike racks and more! This BMW i3 hitch is also engineered to meet stringent national SAE J684 towing safety standards using state-of-the-art testing methods.


The 100% bolt-on installation requires absolutely no drilling to the car’s frame. Installation is a non-obtrusive process that can be performed at home, at Torklift Central or by a Certified EcoHitch Installer. The BMW i3 is more than just a shiny electric vehicle and with the EcoHitch, it becomes one of the best, most eco-friendly escapade vehicles out there – letting you re-imagine the future.
