    62 miles and 31 MPH top speed. So I’m assuming based on previously estimated mileage estimates of electric vehicles, you should be able to go about 20 miles at 30 MPH. Seems pretty pointless if you can’t drive 40-50 miles or more at 30 mph. Otherwise you will have to go 10-15 mph to get to 50 miles, which is ridiculous.

    I see some girls driving this thing around and that’s the end of the market for this thing.

    He did mention that this will be premium premium premium – so they will charge a very high price for this thing:( probably much higher than what it should be.

    The other thing is that AvH is sooooooooo boring in these videos: absolutely no excitement about these products, he puts me to sleep and he looks sleepy himself: his face in these videos reminds me of the 5 Series’ front design – dull and sleepy.

    How can BMW allow such poor quality marketing materials to surface?
