BMW i3 - driving without brakes in London challenge
In this video, Mat Watson and Rebecca Chaplin hit the roads of London in a BMW i3 for a challenge with a difference. The pair took it in turns to drive some of the city’s busiest areas without pressing the brake pedal and attempted to get by just using the electric car’s regenerative braking alone. Like many electric cars, the BMW i3 begins to recover energy as soon as you take your foot off the accelerator. When it’s accelerating the battery powers the wheels but when it’s braking the motor acts as a generator, charging the battery and gently bringing the car to a stop at the same time – if you’re on flat ground that is. Each of would drive just over three miles and the person who used the brake pedal the least would win. Of course, they weren’t allowed to cause an accident by not braking so planning ahead and paying attention would be key!

BMW i3 Range Extender review
I'm travelling along the motorway in a BMW i3 electric car on a return journey of 140 miles. In any other battery-electric vehicle this side of a Vauxhall Ampera or Tesla Model S, I'd need the AA on speed dial, but not today. So is this electric BMW i3 the car that will change the face of motoring as we know it? Many of the press reviews have been euphoric, with five-star ratings given out like they're on special offer. In fact, it's only really here at the Telegraph that any real caution has been exercised, when in his review of the all-electric version of the i3 Andrew English questioned some areas of interior build quality, as well as pointing out that this is still no replacement for a traditional family car. He gave it three stars.
