WE NEED A CUP HOLDER in our car so I stopped in a local showroom for ideas. I came away with a video of BMW's i3.
Electric cars accelerate faster than anything I've driven without an afterburner. Super-strong carbon fibre construction take BMW's electric concept cars into new spaces of shape and functionality. Plus, they come with cup holders (see photo).
The i3 is looks spacious for an urban car. The bottom half of the car is made mostly of lightweight aluminum while the passenger compartment is built from carbon-fiber reinforced plastic (CFRP). The car weighs in at 2750 pounds (compared to a Nissan Leaf's 3366 pounds).
