2014 BMW i3: Spinning on a Dime
by Kelly Hellwig, Managing Editor on September 14, 2015
Business buzz words come and go, with last year's "synergy" becoming this year's "pivot." After spending some solid time in our long-term 2014 BMW i3, I can't help but visualize the electric i3 every time some says "pivot."
As I was pulling into our parking structure, I continued on my usual path to the bottom floor where we park all of our test cars instead of making the hard right turn to stay on the top floor where the EV chargers are located.
"Pivot!" I shouted in my head, as I spun the i3 in a tight semi-circle and headed back up the ramp. With a 32.3-foot turning circle, the BMW curls around like a sleepy cat.
