BMW i3s for The Redline

A little less into the wilderness for this Redline shoot. The BMW i3 is Bavaria's first fully-electric hatchback (although a range-extending petrol engine is available) and a car whose interior would not be out of place in an expensive furniture store's catalogue. The i3s adds a bit more power to the electric motors, and some tweaked handling. So, I guess, the s stands for "sport"?


We actually had two different versions of the i3 out on the shoot. There was the i3s, with all its punch, sharpness pure-silence and a regular i3. The regular i3 has a bit less punch and a little less refinement to the sharpness, but is just as silent. Or it would be if it weren't fitted with the more-or-less microscopic petrol engine that charges the batteries to give you a smidge more range and take the edge off some of the range anxiety.
