BMW's all-electric i3 ready to roll in the US

BMW's eco-friendly i-series cars are finally coming to the US market for the excited buyers and the first of the all-electric i3 models have been delivered to the Americans including ActiveE driver Charles Rabie as well as Ashlan Gorse Cousteau, the wife of documentary maker Philippe Cousteau Jr. The latest picture regarding these new set of cars is making everyone crazy because of the tons of BMW cars all lined up ready to be delivered.

The most excited customers would be the ones who had been waiting for a long period of three years hoping to see the EV turn into a reality. And BMW is now going to perfect hundreds of orders to these patient customers. However, those who want more luxury would have to wait till the month of September. The new i8 will be coming out later and is perfect for the sportier and also wealthier people. But there is no need to wait if you have $41,000 and want to spend on tech-savvy, emission-free transportation because the i3 model isn’t any less.
