I’m speaking in absolutes because up until now we’ve had no reason to believe otherwise. When BMW announced it would make a line of future-forward cars — their “i-series” — that would be electric (mostly) and change the way we looked at transportation, I imagined millions of the things running everywhere. The BMW i8 would be fantastically addicting in the way it’s a mid-engined sports car that can manage better than 60 mpg and looks like it’s from 20 years from the future. Everyone would want one.
