  1. The piano gloss black is strong with this one

  2. A converted gas car, that does not take advantage of BEV packaging advantages. It is therefore very compromised, 240 mile range? What is the purpose of the enormous fake grille. The huge front under hood area designed to house an engine that does not exist. BMW needs ground up BEV’s.

    Wow this EV fan boy is really impressed with the $91000 interior 🙄. You could clearly see what type of agenda CR is now pushing. Are they trying to convince us that this Evie or any evis he is actually a good buy.

  4. What is the opposite of “pretty“? This.

    you say no give but as you touched the centre plastic panel you could even see in the video how it was bending

  6. It looks like a 2007 Mazda with a bootleg BMW grill. $91k? I hope at least it is dependable and drives good.

  7. Seems tasteless.

  8. holy crap that is an expensive car

    2:50 It looks like the license plate fell off the front grill and got stuck back on below. Also $91k for 240mi range does not compute

    Nice car, but naw. I just bought a Kia EV6 AWD Wind model for 20k less than the bottom line BMW. Loads of cool tech features. A few weeks in, finding I can squeeze 307 miles of range in city commuter traffic on ECO mode. Much better than the advertised 282 miles range. Better deal and just as nice a car.

    For the price ACC should be standard, not an option.

  12. Really, you guys are actually saying BMWs are reliable brand. Just because it won’t break in a year doesn’t make it reliable.

  13. I’m tired of watching videos of regular, non supercar, cars I can’t afford

  14. @jcarlton7368 | February 23, 2024 at 5:58 PM |

    Great preliminary assessment. Why are most cars reviewed gray? I’m tired of seeing gray vehicles.

  15. @LearnAboutFlow | February 23, 2024 at 7:18 PM |

    List price: $91K. Resale value six months after purchase: $30K

    the grill is horrible

    I think BMW got to right to create an EV variant and petrol variants on the same architecture and same body style. Now that everyone has started to sober up on EVs and realize they are not for everyone, BMW will execute their vehicle strategy far more profitably. Meanwhile Mercedes is struggling greatly as they took the opposite approach and created TVs on a separate architecture. As a result, the dealers have parking lots full of EVs no one wants and tons of petrol vehicles to sell.

  18. Too big. Won’t fit in my garage.

  19. the rear looks like a toyota
