4. BMW i3
From a technological standpoint, the i3 megacity car is one of the most alluring stories of the new year. One hundred percent purpose-built, the pure electric car is sturdily made out of Carbon Fiber Reinforced Plastic underneath and wows with a luxury renewable interior. On just a three-hour charge, BMW is estimating between 80 to 100 miles. Not too shabby for a car that will be a little less than $50,000.
