Earlier this week I was invited to test drive the new BMW i3 electric car.

It’s a great car, as fast as anything I have ever driven (although I do love my Nissan LEAF) and fully spec’d to high BMW standards. Range only 90 miles and you will have to curb speed to achieve mileage. Great for towns and cities, it’s just the new way to travel!

Living a more rural life I shall wait and see the new Rex version in March 2014 which with a little help from petrol can extend range to well over 150 miles.

I shall ask BMW to post full technical data in due course…

Good Energy have also just announced a partnership with BMW i to promote greener electric driving – read more on:

So book your test drive locally and enjoy the drive of your life!
