BMW's first EV is a peppy four-seater with 170 electric ponies and a featherweight passenger cabin made from carbon fiber. A 22-kilowatt-hour lithium-ion battery delivers 80 to 100 miles of driving range, with an optional 34-horsepower gas engine roughly doubling that distance. It recharges in about three hours on a 220-volt home station. [$41,350 before available $7,500 tax credit; bmwusa.com]
