After much anticipation, luxury carmaker BMW has released an electric car. The BMW i3 is the company's answer to electric cars like the Tesla Model S. The vehicle seems sportier than other options like the Nissan Leaf and the Chevy Volt, and with BMW's brand-power behind it, the 170-horsepower i3 will likely find some customers in 2014.
But the company's long-awaited hybrid has some scratching their heads, including Molly Wood of CNET. Wood joins Marketplace Tech host Ben Johnson to share her take on the i3.
“I think the best compliment I can give is not to say how much your programs have taught me (a ton), but how much Marketplace has motivated me to go out and teach myself.” – Michael in Arlington, VABEFORE YOU GO
