BMW i3 owners are getting creative with their electric cars. From Norway comes a BMW i3 with a special livery: the popular M stripes often seen on high-performance BMWs. And to make sure everyone knows this is a “special i3″, the owner added a few ///M badges on the side and rear end.

The “i3 M” certainly stands out in the crowd and makes for a conversational topic.

The odometer reads 11,000 km, a figure quite high for a year old car, especially an electric-powered one. Norway is one of the world’s most dominate markets for electric cars, thanks to strong government support.

We played around with an i3 M rendering in the past as well, but without a doubt, BMW has no plans to build such vehicle. We might see a high-performance EV in the future, but sans the M tuning.
