BMW i3

Part of the 2nd generation of production EV's, the i3 is BMW's first attempt at a full electric production vehicle and has been very warmly received. The car directly competes with the Nissan Leaf for title of best compact EV. Handling is sporty and has been compared favourably to a Mini Cooper S Works. The ride may be considered by some to be a little too sporty in terms of comfort.
