"The BMW i3 is a very important car. Not only is it the cheapest car on the market with a Carbon Tub, it's quick, fun to drive, and has an amazingly cool interior."

In this The Smoking Tire review of the BMW i3 BEV (of which BMW recently sold a new record - 1,710 copies of in September 2015) it is obvious that the test driver enjoys the i3.

In fact, he says that if you can't afford a Tesla, then the i3 is the electric car you should buy. As low as ~$300 per month (lease), the i3 does indeed provide solid bag for your buck.

The reviewer adds that if fitted with proper sporty tires, the i3 would be even more exciting to drive, but it's still a blast as is.
