I am liking the BMW 3-Series EV or the VW/Audi. Tesla said early on that the goal was to get the industry on the EV track, which is why Tesla opened up their tech to help get the industry up to speed. Just think in just a few years there will be so many viable EV options at several price points.

And it's good to see that most of the industry is figuring out that going 'beautiful/sexy' is better than going 'different/odd' in design to attract the EV customer.

That BMW is ugly. It doesn't even have several BMW design characteristics - the "grille", while echoing the double kidneys, is connected, and therefore not BMW's signature, and the c-pillar doesn't have the Hofmeister kink. Take away the badge and it could be anything.
