The BMW i3 has been a huge topic in the market. BMW has quite some strong competitors in this industry. Tesla is among the top of their competitors but BMW has created quite a challenge for them as well. The i3 takes BMW’s driving principles to a new realm. It went from zero to 60 mph in 6.5 seconds. Driving dynamics are on hand, too, thanks to the car’s low center of gravity. The EPA estimates the range at 81 miles per charge; it can charge in three hours from a 220-volt outlet. An optional range-extending gas engine provides a total range of 150 miles and helps quell dead-battery anxiety.
BUT it looks like a box on wheels. Yes it is filled with a bunch of goodies but is this what the future looks like with all car design? It’s kind of scary to think about the future like that. I will miss the aggressive lines of sports cars and how cars look smooth and aerodynamic. Thanks to PUR Wheels, they made the i3 much sportier with a set of 20″ PUR LG04 wheels. The wheels measure 20×5.5″ front and 20×6.0 rear and finished in Matte Black Diamond, with Polished outer lips, and Electric Blue hardware.
