My Next Car

I had the privilege of attending the 2014 BMW Supplier awards and found my next (dream) car…the BMW i8.

  • Plug-in Hybrid (like the former Fisker Karma): the best of both worlds.  The energy consumption and convenience of never having to stop for gas during your daily commute, but the comfort of knowing you can travel long distances if you need to on gas without having to spend hours at a charging station.
  • Multi-modal routing (provided by INRIX of course!): routes you to your destination the quickest way even if that includes taking a train or a bus.
  • Absolutely killer styling: looks like a top-of-the-line sports car (because it is), not like a traditional electric like the Leaf, Volt or Tesla.

During the event, BMW let us all drive their new car…unfortunately not the i8, but rather the new 2-series Active Tourer.  Nice car and it was fun driving it over the Netherlands, but it’s not the i8!
