BMW i3. Great city or short trip ev, fun to drive, reliable, efficient.

First the car is a lot of fun to drive, very quick and agile, great vision from the windshield. Driving range is very good for city driving (85 miles), running errands around town and going to the beach (lots of room in the back). It is fast charging capable in about 20 mins. This is very reliable, never had an issue.

BMW i3's are very affordable ... if you buy them used.

The BMW i3 is awesome. It's an electric car with style and drives like, well, a BMW. People said to me 'Why didn't you get a Chevy Bolt?" I said 'Because then I'd be driving a Chevy.'

- Patrick C

it s electric, cheap, hopefully I have the extender if I do not have enough electricity on my battery. It ok for commute but not for a road trip

I like this car, the speed, easy to use. One complaint, tires are not great, too narrow, do not stay on the road
