It's now official.
The first US BMW i3 REx has been delivered to none other than Tom Moloughney, InsideEVs contributor, former Mini E lessee, BMW ActiveE lessee, Plug In America director, longtime electric vehicle advocate and so on.
The hand off occurred at JMK BMW in New Jersey where BMW senior client advisor Manny Antunes (perhaps the most knowledgeable BMW i client advisor in all of the US) happily tossed the keys to Moloughney.

For Moloughney, this marks the start of a new chapter in electric mobility.
For InsideEVs, this day is the beginning of what will evolve into a series of BMW i3 REx related articles from Moloughney, in which he will attempt to explore/discuss details unique to the i3. This will include several road-trip journeys in which Moloughney pushes the boundaries of the i3 in an attempt to see just how capable BMW's latest electric vehicle truly is.

All across the country, BMW i3 REx plug ins will be delivered from ports to dealerships and then to lessees/buyers. There are hundreds waiting to be delivered. Now that the EPA window sticker is available for the i3 REx, these deliveries will occur immediately.
