Engadget goes behind the wheel of the BMW i3 and tries out the Parking Package available for BMW’s first electric vehicle.
The $1,000 Park Assistant package offers all-round assistance for especially easy and worry-free parking: with Park Distance Control in the front, rear-view camera in the rear, and the Park Assistant, not only is convenient parking by the driver possible, but also a fully-automatic option – where the BMW i3 accelerates, brakes and steers itself – is available too.
