Spanish Owner Proves BMW i3 Can Track

Makes three laps on one full charge.

The electric BMW i3 may appear to be as far from a racing pedigree as a tired old dog, but this Puky Pedro, reportedly the first i3 owner in his native Spain, has decided to prove otherwise. Taking his brand-new blue-wrapped, fully-charged car out on the Jarama race track, he manages to pull off three impressive-looking laps before running out of charge. At 11.5 miles of all-electric power and not much mercy taken on the car, the smiley owner seems pretty satisfied with the way his Bimmer handles.

Check out this unlikely racer proving its more than just an eco-friendly city car:
