As you probably already seen on my Instagram, we tested the BMWi3 via SHARE NOW last week and we had a blast.
Since we bought our house in Amsterdam and being self employed for a few years, we didn’t saw the benefits of having a car. Over the years, Welly and I always had company cars, but in the city you actually don’t need one. It’s more of a hussle to move around in the city by car, than luxury. However, our family and a lot of friends live outside of Amsterdam, so lately we’re thinking about buying a car.
When our house was built Welly wanted to add a charging point for an electric car in the future. Super handy, because we believe in a few years people will drive electric cars more and more. So when SHARE NOW contacted me about testing this electric BMW we were very excited. Welly and I used the SHARE NOW service for a while already with the shared 2 pax Smarts. Having a bigger car like this BMWi3 is super handy if you want to travel around with friends or family. And when you’re driving longer distances, it’s giving you so much more comfort than a Smart. Space enough in this one :-)! Something we didn’t know or looked into, is that you can rent a car for a day or more. Normally we just used it by minute for short distance visits in the city with bad weather for example.
When they brought the BMWi3 I already knew the first stop we would make…. the BIG yellow M haha! Back in the days I loved to go through the Mcdrive and get my fav’ food, so this was super fun and delicious again. We planned family visits with the car, as my parents we’re celebrating their 35th wedding anniversary and Welly’s mom was having her 63st birthday party in Lelystad. So nice to have a car, driving super smooth and not have to use public transport. Especially now with Covid-19, where you need to wear a mask in public transport.
Another thing I really liked, is to charge the car super fast on the high way or overnight and have the ability to drive between 250-300 km when it’s fully charged. The Netherlands isn’t that big, so it’s more than enough and if not, you just stop along the highway and it’s charged up to 80% within 15 minutes or so.
Conclusion? Testing this car convinced us even more to look into electric cars when buying one. You don’t need fuel, charging is really easy, it’s driving super smooth, it doesn’t make noise at all and you support the environment. Not convinced yet?
