Electric vehicles have come a long way from their humble beginnings, and this new BMW looks like a good combination between performance and economy. While it’s design does look a bit bulbous to me, its capabilities sound like they’re more than enough to make up for that.

The BMW i3 is a rear-wheel drive EV with four seats. The engine produces 170 hp and it has an 80 to 100-mile range on a single charge, which will work for most people’s daily commute and more. It accelerates from 0 to 60 in 7 seconds. BMW have combined carbon fiber and plastic to make the passenger compartment lighter than other cars, and it’s still supposed to be stronger than steel. It weighs only 2,700 lbs.
