BMW’s i3 has sustainable fabrics in the upholstery and hemp in the door panels, but I’m not sure how sustainable the i3’s carbon fiber based structure is, what with carbon fiber not exactly growing on trees.The i3 has a range of 80 to 100 miles on its batteries. If you have range anxiety you can also order it with an on-board range extending gasoline powered genset, or take advantage of BMW’s loaner program, which makes conventionally powered cars available for use by owners of i3s when they need to drive out of town.

"...I've been over to Cars In Depth on many occasions. Barring the whole 3D thing which drives me up the wall (that's a personal thing, though), I like the content, the writing, and the simple formatting. You do a great job over there, and I am impressed."
