  1. This car doesn’t seem to be any good for long distance driving if you can only go 120 miles a day?  If it took 3 hours to charge and could go 1000 miles in one day … then I might be interested to get one.  Also, it’s vague in the video … how much per charge?  Even if it’s 1/2 of what gas is I wouldn’t be interested either.  I really wanted to have my interest sparked …  but I’m not as impressed as I thought I’d be.  

  2. If bmw wants to compete with tesla it should also work on super chargers. 3 hours or 7 8 hours to charge these small batteries are a big turn off.
