2014 BMW i3: Another Good Running Buddy

by Travis Langness, Social Media Editor on September 28, 2015

2014 BMW i3

The last time I was up early to go running on a weekend, I took our long-term Jaguar F-Type to the beach and it made an excellent companion. This time around, I had a car with less than half the horsepower and much less noise. Even with those downsides though (subjective, I know), our long-term 2014 BMW i3 made an excellent running buddy too.

For waking up early, the Jaguar is probably the best alternative to coffee with four wheels, but the i3 used a different strategy and helped me ease in to the early-morning run.

I'm normally stressed out before big events, wondering if I'll make it on time, what parking will be like, and whether or not I brought enough Gu packets. Not in the i3. It was quick to get me there, but quiet and peaceful along the way. It had plenty of range to get me home (the race was only a few miles from my house) and it was definitely more comfortable.

Plus, I doubt the electric BMW woke up any of my neighbors.
