2014 BMW i3 Review by WardsAuto

The time for the first all-electric mass production BMW to start selling in the US is rapidly approaching. The i3 is set to change the way we move around town and how we perceive mobility.

The guys from WardsAuto tested the new model in Los Angeles at a special event held by BMW. Needless to say they were impressed by the performance and feel of the car but disappointed in other areas. However, they are the first people that complain about the interior.

Whilst other people loved the fresh, futuristic look of the car’s cabin, this time, it almost received a thumbs down because of its offering of recyclable materials because they (seemingly) don’t fit perfectly together. Interesting view.

On the road though, there were no complaints. The one-pedal driving was appraised whilst the agility and stability through corners did more than simply impress the guys from WardsAuto.

Even so, they are still unconvinced that the EV segment can really take off with cars like this, even though the i3 is the best choice out there and the most eco-friendly car built today outshining offerings such as Fiat 500e, Ford Focus EV, Nissan Leaf, Honda Fit EV, Chevrolet Spark EV and Volt.
