2014 BMW i3: 5,000 Miles

May 18, 2015

2014 BMW i3

So what have we learned in the first 5,000 miles of 2014 BMW i3 ownership? For starters, it's surprisingly fun to drive for a car with shockingly skinny tires. It also fits a rear-facing baby seat or a couple sets of golf clubs if you need those capabilities.

The downsides? There's no AM radio due to interference from the electric motor and we did notice that one of the doors is misaligned. It also has a hard-to-wrangle floor mat and the climate control system is the strongest setup we've experienced.

Overall, most staffers like to drive the i3, even the ones who don't like the way it looks. Turns out, performance and practicality can trump style if you give them enough time. Guess that's why Toyota sells so many Camrys every year.
