2014 BMW i3: Do Golf Clubs Fit?
May 11, 2015
You are retired. Perhaps you live in a place where the sun frequently shines. Perhaps your home, as a result, has a roof-mounted solar power system. Perhaps, therefore, a plug-in car like the BMW i3 makes an immense amount of sense. Perhaps, let's also say you golf (did I mention you're retired and live in a sunny place?). Perhaps you're even my parents. Will your golf clubs fit in the 2014 BMW i3?
As the photo above clearly shows (spoiler alert), yes they do. It requires lowering one of the 50/50-split rear seats, but that's easy enough.
Now, would buying a regular car and a golf cart be a much cheaper proposition, especially since you can't exactly cruise down the 14th fairway in the i3? Well, sure, but I still contend that the i3 is a pretty perfect vehicle for retirees. It's just fine for golfers of any age as well, perhaps even for those who have to sit in 45 minutes of LA traffic for some Tuesday night twilight golf.
