Having just spent the weekend with a fully loaded Tesla model S I have completely renewed faith in the excitement that can be had with an electric car. The acceleration in that thing is literally breathtaking, its comfortable, and handles well enough to be fun. I couldn't help but think what a small bmw engineered vehicle with a similar powertrain would feel like.
Sports car companies that don't embrace these new powertrains are going to be left in the dust. Its not just about being green, it really is an incredible driving experience and I'd be left wanting if BMW didn't have a car to compete.
