BMWi3 full electric car

Good morning Warren and Friends

Warren and I attended a BMWi3 full electric car event. This is a game-changer because it is not only fully electric (with the option of a range extender) but because it is made of carbon fiber.

It also has a very cool feature in the NAV system that allows you to know how far you can go in comfort or eco-pro mode AND it takes into account topography and traffic.

But the coolest thing is

BMW, Chevy, and Cadillac are all putting solar panels on car dealerships and adding charging units so that anyone that has an electric vehicle can charge at their dealership.

Let’s chat about cars
