The BMW i3 North American press drives are underway here in Los Angeles, coinciding with its North American debut at the Los Angeles auto show this week.

Here's a set of on-location photos from LA.

I would've saved 200US$ in toll each month, driving this thing.
It's a city car, and it cost as much as a Nissan Leaf in Norway, and about half of a Tesla.
I like the tech in this car, both the Carbonbody and the interiour.

I have tremendous respect for the quality (it seems) of this car. No compromise materials, design, interior, comfort (again, seems), and BMW engineering.

This looks to be the most promising e car on the road and BMW really went above and beyond to design an entire package, and not just dump batteries in a sh!tty small combustion engine platform and pray for decent results on paperů..

Great pics! Stunning car to drive a real game changer with its supercar construction. I am sure BMW will be at full capacity producing this vehicle for a long time.

Agree good engineering but BMW won't sell a lot of these in the UK at the crazy high lease costs on offer. Only makes sense for a company car driver. Early adopters will love it but it makes the new Mini with its 3 cylinder engines that are so fuel efficient look a positive bargain.

I wonder if people who buy this car will mod it to make it as efficient as possible?
