With its carbon-fiber structure and electric powertrain, the i3 advances BMW’s legendary driving dynamics into the future. It handles well due to a low center of gravity; 0 to 60 mph in 6.5 seconds. The battery range gets 81 miles; it charges in 3 hours on a 220-volt outlet. The gas engine extends the total range to 150 miles, quelling dead-battery anxiety... Green still means GO! I allow more miles than any other owner here in LA... Please no smokers, thanks!
