A “jd525” recently shared a super interesting video about the BMW i3 on the BMW i forum. (Surprising place to find such a thing, eh?) To be specific, it is a Forbes video in which engineers from Munro & Associates display and talk about some of the cool things they found when reverse engineering the BMW i3.
Without a doubt, these guys were impressed with the vehicle. One of them called it “the most advanced vehicle on the planet” and compared it to the Ford Model T. Hard to say it deserves such a comparison, but I’m definitely a fan of the vehicle.
Some of the things these engineers loved were the use of carbon fiber, how the “Life Module” was designed and how well it protects passengers, and the way BMW split up the battery pack. For details, check out the video:
