BMW i3 review

NGC verdict 24.07.2018

Having really liked the BMW i3, I was looking forward to testing the i3s as soon as it had been booked in. Featuring everything good about BMW's compact EV, but with a little more focus on a sharper driving experience, the i3s looked - on paper at least - as though it was going to be both an interesting and fun car to drive. So what is the first (mildly) hot-EV like to drive? NGC finds out with the BMW i3s REX.
