2014 BMW i3

Pros

Quick and nimble due to lightweight chassis
Well-crafted, contemporary interior has a distinctive style
Available range-extender model

While we prefer the sharper handling and acceleration of the i3s, our recommendation is to stick with the base i3 for its lower price and incrementally higher range. Take the money you save and apply it to getting the Technology + Driving Assistant package and Apple CarPlay option. You’ll have a far more capable infotainment system and still come out ahead. The Range Extender might appeal to increase your peace of mind, but it adds substantial weight and cost to the bottom line.

The BMW i3 is probably one of the most innovative cars on the road today. That’s true even though it’s currently in its fifth model year. BMW pioneered the use of carbon fiber as the basis for the production car’s structure to save weight. And it paid off: The i3 is quite lightweight for a battery-electric car, abetting its agile nature and quick acceleration. Other manufacturers still have a ways to go to catch up to BMW in this choice of material.

The i3’s styling is polarizing; of that there is no doubt. But it looks like no other car on the road and has a cabin that is truly striking and upscale. It’s functional, too, with a breezy, spacious feel and easy backseat access thanks to the rearward-hinged rear doors
