Merry Christmas powered by BMW i

The BMW i3 is silent and carries much electricity on board; often even more than what is needed for driving. This video shows what could be done with it. The BMW i engineers are working on it.. (BMW i3 as a electricity dispenser).

Well, not impressed BMW, allthough i love the i01!
Nissan are these Days coming up with more sophisticated stuff.
Like using the new Nissan leaf to power up a cabin which is Off the grid. And selling used and new battery package from Leaf as a stand alone package combined with sun panels with Enron. I expect BMW too come up with similar/better solutions!

Nice video montage, but BMW left out the part when the i3 runs out of electricity before the driver gets back to the city because the x-mas tree was lit the entire drive.

Why even waste another dime marketing this ugly flop?

After ten month of driving this unique vehicle, I'm still excited about it.
Happy to see our government finally released their EV-masterplan last week. Looks solid and thoughtful.

Fröhliche Weihnachten

Because sales numbers are still rising even after 5 years on the market.

Where did that roofrack come from? I like it but not so good for aerodynamics.

That helps!

Could also be the Model 3 halo-effect. A lot more people are talking BEVs these days and the i3 is one of the only lease-able lux BEVs available at the moment.
