With its space-age body, super-efficient powertrain, and laser focus on its urban mission, the i3 pushes the boundaries in automotive design. This tall, narrow, electric city car not only looks like a futuristic personal transportation pod that just drove off the set of the latest "Tron" movie, it's the first widely available car to use lightweight carbon fiber for its basic body structure.

Best Version to Get

We would get an i3 with the range extender. The Deka World should suffice for most potential buyers, but we think the Giga World brings a more attractive interior with nicer upholstery and wood trim.
