The word "fun" is not usually used in the same sentence as "electric car." For the most part, they seem to be mutually exclusive. There are exceptions, namely the Tesla Model S, but they are few and far between. Actually, the variety of electric cars is slim to begin with, there aren't many options to choose from, especially if you don't have pockets deep enough to handle that Tesla. If you're not planning to go very far and have little cargo or few passengers, there's always the Nissan Leaf. There isn't much between the Leaf and the Tesla though, at least until now. BMW's i3 is a little less upmarket than the Tesla, and a little more than the Leaf. The i3 is not your typical BMW, it's a completely different car in every way. From a looks perspective, the only thing it retains from it's heritage is a kidney-shaped grille and great headlamps. It's a little goofy looking, not at all like it's kin with odd proportions and a strange looking back window curve. The i3's boxy shape makes it easy to fit passengers of various sizes. It looks like a concept car, complete with suicide doors. Inside, there is a lot of carbon-reinforced plastic, which is both strong and lightweight. Most materials are recycled, allowing the car to reach carbon-neutral status. The interior has a unique textured feel, and the dash is quite low, allowing for great visibility.
