I came on here to post this. I wanted to comment *correction - 100,000 “electrified” vehicles in quotes since that probably means their plug-in varieties that claim 15 miles of electric range but get more like 7. My wife and I test drove an X5 plug-in and as a hybrid it maybe got 22mpg vs 18mpg for the non plug-in.
I leased an i3 for about 6 months back in 2014. It was a neat car, but so impractical if you are planning on driving anyone else besides yourself and a passenger. We tried a car seat in the back and it was laughable. I swear I still have elbow tendinitis from trying to pry my poor daughter out of her seat back there.
However, I’m excited to see what they can do with a fully electric 5-series or 3-series. Those cars used to be really fun to drive. If they can combine those old driving dynamics in a pure-EV that could be something. We’re no more than a couple years out from that.
