The Rama Exhibition Good News Flash for the Earth…
THE ULTIMATE DRIVING MACHINE!
By Calley O’Neill
Yesterday I met some wonderful BMW dealership owners attending a meeting in Hawai’i. Yesterday, I met my fantasy car… I have wanted a brilliant, solar car since 1980 studying for my MA in Social Ecology at Goddard College. I just couldn’t get excited about any of them yet and due to their detailed commitment to sustainability and ecological sanity, I sense that the BMW i3 will be the game changer!
With this release in early 2014, BMW will actually become THE ULTIMATE DRIVING MACHINE. I was told that the zero emissions i3 will be made out of 99% recycled materials, have a beautiful eucalyptus dashboard, organic wool seat covers (or leather with non-toxic dyes in an olive oil base) and everything else I have ever wanted a solar car to have. It’s pure electric, comes with solar charging system, and goes 100 miles without a charge, which will cost between $3 and $4 per charge. The lightweight carbon fiber plastic body will be made in northern Washington in a hydroelectrically powered plant.
This… is the car of my dreams and to top off my fantasy, I am hoping to be named as their spokesperson!
(My birthday is New Year’s Eve, in case you were hoping to find the perfect gift!)
