Default BMW's i3 Makes it Right for Brad Pitt's Charity



Brad Pitt's Make It Right charity "builds green homes, buildings and communities for people in need." Since 2007, it's constructed 100 eco-friendly homes in New Orleans' Lower 9th Ward.

Someone at a recent MIR fundraising gala won an equally green car in a raffle: the all-electric, zero-emission i3 donated by BMW, as well as the chance to hear the lovely Sandra Bullock call out his or her name.

The $55,000 Bimmer, which is the first mass-produced vehicle mostly made out of carbon fiber reinforced plastic, is also environmentally friendly in areas outside of its powerplant. For instance, the i3's interior is a landscape of "recycled plastics, responsibly forested eucalyptus wood, plant fibers and olive leaf extract." In fact, the roundel-badged runabout was named the World Green Car of the Year by the World Car Awards committee.

$55K!?!?!?!?!?

I test drove one two months ago, MSRP was around $41K, which is still a bit high if you ask me.

Yeah, this one must be fully loaded. I couldn't believe it either when I read the press release.
