I was thrilled to drive BMW’s all-new electric drive i3 at its global launch in Amsterdam; it took me by surprise with its characterful personality, impressive dynamics, sharp looks and stunning, nouveau interior.

Having been afforded ample seat time behind the wheel, we decided to expound on the i3’s driving experience by way of a quick video review. Having been partnered up with ‘Lisa the Car Addict’ for driving duties throughout the day, we thought it an opportune chance to get a second opinion on camera.

We look forward to driving the i3 on North American soil – until then, here are my initial driving impressions from the global launch.

    It was interesting to see some normal driving from inside the i3 for a change. I actually sat inside the i3 at the Johannesburg International Motor Show, but couldn’t get a ride yet. It was smaller on the inside than I had imagined, but it felt upmarket at the same time. Thanks for posting the video!
