Lulu the dog says, “This New Electric BMW is good as Tesla.”

BMW is releasing two new electric vehicles this year: the BMW i3 and the BMW i8. And by the tone of early reviews, they may have a serious competitor for leading sustainable cars. The i8 is definitely out of range for most household budgets in New Jersey and the rest of the country, with a listing price of $135,925. The i3 however, is a much more accessible vehicle priced at $41,350 and is being reviewed as a potential Tesla Model S alternative. Whether or not this vehicle outsells Tesla, we all know that BMW delivers when it comes to expert craftsmanship, handling, and performance.

Take a look at this track test for the BMW i3, and stay on the lookout for potential discounts at NJ Car Coupons.

In New Jersey, we have to deal with some pretty heavy winter snow on highways as well as dense local streets, which is why small SUVs are a great option to stay safe. Sure everyone would like a bulky Hummer H2 to conquer frozen terrain, but does anyone enjoy parallel parking that thing?
