I excitedly spotted BMW’s new i3 the other day. A milestone for the brand, it represents the first ever zero emissions, mass-produced BMW. I didn’t think I was going to like it based on the goofy pictures I had seen up until this point, but it’s actually distinguishing in the sheet metal. The design, while certainly not elegant, does come off substantial and upscale in its look and feel. I suppose that makes sense considering the blue and white roundel on the hood. Looking forward to driving it one of these days to see if it lives up to the sporty Ultimate Driving Machine mantra.
