I really cant wait to take one for a test drive. I think the lowere price point will help it be competitive with other electric vehicles, now being on the upscale market side. I wish my state had better incentives for electrical vehicles.

Unfortunately we won't get to drive them for a couple months. The limited driving reviews that have come out so far are very positive.

Which dealers will carry the i3 in the US?

What is the plan for additional charging stations in the US?

Will there be a "reservation" system in place for i3 owners that need a loaner car from the local dealer?

Will there be a restriction placed on how many times (or length of time) an i3 owner can get a "loaner" car from the dealer?

Will the i3 be available via ED?

What do I want to know? How about, Why, oh why, did BMW not pursue a more attractive design?!?! I understand not being limited by the classic platform limitations, but neither is a Tesla Model S and it looks great. Very disappointed that BMW felt compelled to introduce a "look at me, look at me! I am a goofy electric car!". I can only hope the official reveal doesn't have a bunch of clowns coming out of it....

I'm interested in a few accessories. Sometimes what is offered in the US isn't the same as the UK.

Will there be a rear seat saver or cover? This rarely ordered accessory is available for most US BMWs. We had ones for our e46 and X3 that covered the entire rear compartment.

Any plans for a dog guard?

They will be sold at dealerships. Most, if not all LA dealerships will end up BMW i certified if they're not already. Hard to say how the BMW i3 buying experience will be but you can't go wrong with one of our BMW dealers sponsors -

How about leasing? will the monthly payments be comparable to a 3 series?

The leasing details haven't been released yet. BMW was tight lipped about that at the event.

UK i3 payments are in the same range as a UK 328i .

UK specs and prices are very different than US though. It will be easier to get a discount on a 3 series too.
