It’s now official! The first US BMW i3 REx has been delivered to Tom Moloughney, InsideEVs contributor, former Mini E lessee, Plug In America director, BMW ActiveE Lessee, longtime electric vehicle associate and so on. The hand off occurred at JMK BMW in New Jersey where Manny Antunes, BMW senior client advisor happily tossed the keys to Moloughney.
For Tom, this marks the start of a new chapter in electric mobility. For InsideEVs, this day is the beginning of what will evolve into a series of BMW i3 REx related articles from Tom, in which he will attempt to discuss/explore details unique to the i3. This will include several road-trip journeys in which Tom pushes the boundaries of the i3 in an attempt to see just how capable BMW’s latest electric vehicle truly is.
All across the country, BMW i3 REx plug-ins will be delivered from ports to dealerships and then to lessees/buyers. There are hundreds waiting to be delivered. Now that the EPA window sticker is offered for the i3 REx, these deliveries will occur immediately.
