We must admit that we love all videos that are like this one you'll see here.

An EV newbie getting his or her first go in an electric is almost always an eye-opening experience.

Here, an EV newbie (BMW newbie, too) samples a friend's BMW i3.

To says he's amazed would be an understatement.

There's definitely EV grins throughout the video (some wow-related chuckles, too).

For i3 fans, the comparison made is that the electric BMW performs on par with a Cooper S, which is a remarkable machine in its own right.
