That seems pretty convenient. Now if they have these charging stations everywhere I could see this being very useful

The future for e-drive are solving more and more obstacles. Which make the benefits higher, and the negative sides are getting fewer by each day.

Give it several years and it will be.

Battery price reduction are the key to this equation.

I am looking forward to the full electric X3 as well. X2 hopefully too.

They'll need to lace all the roads with those chargers if the electric cars wanna go more than a few miles...

True, but like cell phone's most people figure out where to charge, but when you have 300 miles per charge, it will not be like it is now. Then people will buy 100% Electric over the [ICE] Internal Combustion Engine version.
