Hard to say. They say they are using off the shelf parts, which is reasonable. My understanding is that BMW bought the drivetrain tech in, they didn't develop it themselves.Its an i3 with a truly terrible body kit...
Take into account this was filmed in the summer so development is 6/8 months further along, they’ve already said now they’ve picked front wheel drive and the battery,will be interesting to see if other videos show more shots of the newest modelIs it me or did they carefully avoid showing the IC or anything else that was previously shown to taken straight out of an i3?
At this stage they should have all that stuff ready to show off. Kinda sad that Fully Charged is giving them publicity.
Whilst I agree that's it's a gimmick, it's quite a nice one that other manufacturers could do as a premium option.And they are still plowing despite the unrealistic expectation/gimmick of solar panels.
Almost 10.000 people, whom made a payment for a reservation do think differently than you.If that ever does get to production and it looks even remotely like the prototype it will do untold damage to the EV movement. Seriously, no one in their right mind is going to want to be driving around in something that hideous looking, it makes the Leaf look like a beauty queen!
