Default Test Drive: Dropping Off my 3 Series For a Week in a Loaner BMW 430i: the Setup for t

Sometime next year BMW will be introducing their first real non-compliant full production all electric car. It wonít look as funky as i3 does. Itíll actually look like a real normal car. And itíll be based off the 4 series. So with my BMW in the shop AGAIN, and the dealer giving me a 430 coupe as a loaner, I decided to take this opportunity to give you a dynamic of what to expect from a 4 series electric by looking at the gas one and my car, a 3 Series, first.

I rarely drive when Iím home so Iím in no rush to buy an electric. In fact I spend a lot of my home time on the internet doing a lot of intensive research about electric cars, to find content to write about, and for my personal edification. But I will be joining many of you soon in the electric car market. I may even convert my 2011 BMW 328i Cabriolet or a classic gas car to electric as a daily or frequent driver. So I skipped the early adopter and hybrid era for this moment in time when we all are now getting serious about all electric cars, with the dozen or so models weíre expecting to come with the first incursion this year, then the dozens to follow with the startups, starting next year. This includes the billions of dollars that charging networks and Volkswagen Group has spent last year to suddenly spruce up the nationwide network to get ready for these incursions.
