The ActiveE Field Trial: The Final Chapter

After the introduction of BMW i3 will the majority of ActiveE Electronauts stay or leave the brand?

The ActiveE field trial consists of 700 vehicles and drivers, which allowed BMW to learn and collect data from about 15 million real-world miles their owners have collectively driven to date. The ActiveE could be described as a very nicely executed engineering test mule, which carries an early version of the BMW i3 drivertrain.

I am probably not alone if I say that it’s been a privilege being a part of the process, which culminated in the creation of the i3. I think that many Electronauts feel the same way, and are appreciative of the overall experience. Should some of them decide to leave the brand, hopefully they will do so on a positive note, and remember that everyone involved helped make a difference in a program, which will have a lasting legacy.

Personally, I am of the opinion that BMW should be commended for running the field trial.
