Before I even begin talking about BMW and their all new electric cars, I’d want to put this out – I’m a big fan of BMW. Although I don’t own any of their cars (well, I can’t afford it), I’ve been a passenger in many BMWs and driven one 5-series BMW car till date.
I was delighted when I heard BMW’s new entry of electric cars, the philosophy of which they referred to as “sustainable mobility.” This entire vision encapsulates their idea of new and visionary electric vehicles, inspiring design (oh I love their design), and a new understanding of “premium” strongly defined by sustainability. I’d love to talk about this, but first, here’s a video review of the BMW i3 from Marek Drives.
