BMW i3 in Dubai

BMW i3 in Dubai

We’ve seen the BMW i3 on the Autobahn for some high-speed testing and even caught of glimpse of it on some snow-covered roads, but now that summer is upon us, it’s time for BMW to test the i3’s hot-weather capabilities.

And test-time it is.

Recently, BMW shipped out its i3 to Dubai, where average summertime temps easily reach triple digits (average high in June is 103 degrees Fahrenheit).

Though this latest clip doesn’t reveal much, it’s comforting to know that BMW is testing the i3’s advanced powertrain in all conceivable conditions that future owners may encounter.

Soon, the i3 will be in the hands of journalists for some additional quick spins and that’s a moment we’re all looking forward to.

Until then, check out this i3 spotted on public roads in Dubai.

    I can’t wait to test drive an i3 early next year.

    Why go to Dubai when you can go to Arizona, where apparently LEAFs go to die.

      Because Dubai is closer to Germany than Arizona. The rest of the world doesn’t orbit around the United States:-)
