This advanced approach is designed the reduce the overall weight of the car, allowing for a smaller battery, staggering acceleration and excellent handling.

I am a of course a little bias towards the little BMW as I have one as my daily driver.  Our model is the original car equipped with a 22kwh battery pack.  This year BMW introduced the larger 33kwh battery, greatly extending the available driving range.

The Carbon Fibre shell is so strong a B Pillar is not needed
