The 2015 BMW i3 AM radio was built-in but due to some compliance issues it was disabled, therefore no AM radio local traffic reports or news headlines are possible.

"AM is not offered due to negative performance influences of the electromagnetic interference of the electric drivetrain" said Rebecca K. Kiehne, a BMW product and technical communications spokesperson. Electric motors cause interference on AM which is why BMW decided to remove this option. "While it could be offered, BMW’s performance standards are very high and we don’t offer a product that meets less than those high standards."
