I've joined the fleet of electric car owners! Say hello to my @bmw i3! ⚡
I got this 2015 car for $16.5k - and I really wanted to share this for those of you who are like me and obviously think Tesla's are awesome, but can't/don't want to spend >$40,000 on a car! There are a bunch of wonderful electric car options out there for lower budgets. 💁🏻♀️
This car has about 75 miles pure electric range. And since I've never had an electric car and was kinda worried about being stranded with no charging options, I got the "range extender" option, which means it has an additional 75 miles range if you fill up its small tank with gas. I've been driving this for a month and haven't needed the range extender once, but it gives me peace of mind.
I've also never driven a BMW before and feel especially bougie in this. There are small things about it that make it feel like a ~luxury~ car. Plus, my 6'5'' husband claims he feels like he has more room in THIS car than in our Honda CR-V. 🙌🏼 Oh and this car qualifies for the California "clean air vehicle" sticker which means I can drive in the HOV lane with this (!!!)
Anyway, yay for not needed gas to drive places anymore!!! ⚡🚗
