BMW cars are important for three reasons. Firstly, because BMW had to figure out how to mass-produce carbon fibre to make them. Secondly, because they show a new face of the company that makes the X6 and forces its competitoin to do the same. Last but not the least, because they show how much fun electric cars can be even at $30,000 less than Elon Musk’s cheapest Model S.
