International Electric Vehicle Conference Includes BMW ActiveE
Every year, the Institute of Electrical & Electronics Engineers (IEEE) hold their Electric Vehicle Conference. The group aims to better humanity through the use of technology, so it only makes sense that they would hold an event to further explore how zero-emission travel can be made into a sustainable reality.
Why the long spiel about the I-Triple-E? Simply put, everyone at Weber BMW is quite thrilled for this year's conference. The reason why is that BMW is planning to show off their first all-electric electric vehicle, the BMW ActiveE.
Already being delivered to a select group of testers through a unique lease program, the BMW ActiveE is quickly proving itself to not only be a reliable EV, but a fun one to drive as well. For instance, the ActiveE sports a zero to sixty sprint time of under 9 seconds. This is thanks to the fact that the vehicle's electric powertrain imbues it with 170 horsepower and 184 lb.-ft. of torque. Sure, it's not the most impressive numbers seen from the Blue and White Shield, but they're light years ahead of other all-electric offerings from competing automakers. And, don't forget to add in the fact that even with all that power under the hood of the BMW ActiveE, it still manages to feature a similar driving range that its competitors do. For those of you wondering, that would be 100 miles.
