BMW Donates BMW i3 All-Electric Vehicle to Brad Pitt’s Make It Right Gala.
New Orleans, LA – May 20, 2014… An all-electric, zero emission BMW i3 was donated to Make It Right, the charity that builds green homes, buildings and communities for people in need, for the raffle at its 2014 Gala on Saturday, May 17. Make It Right founder Brad Pitt and presenter Sandra Bullock led the pledges and announced the recipient of a new BMW i3, worth $55,000.
Currently available in the U.S., every element of the BMW i3 promotes sustainability. The BMW i3 is created using solar and wind power. It is the first mass-produced vehicle made primarily of carbon fiber reinforced plastic, resulting in an electric car that is strong and lightweight. The interior is made with high quality renewable materials like recycled plastics, responsibly forested eucalyptus wood, plant fibers and olive leaf extract. The BMW i3 was recently named the World Green Car of the Year and World Car Design of the Year.
Make It Right has built 100 environmentally friendly homes, designed by some of the world’s top architects, in the Lower 9th Ward in New Orleans since it was founded in 2007. The funds raised from Saturday’s gala will be used to build more Make It Right homes in New Orleans, Kansas City, Newark and the Fort Peck Indian Reservation in Montana.

The Best Hybrids For The Money
AOL Autos Staff
Posted Apr 21, 2014
The Toyota Prius is not the only hybrid on the road, although sales numbers would suggest that is the prevailing assumption. The green hatchback outsells all the other hybrids by a staggering amount.
Of course, this isn't to say that the Prius is a bad car. It's a great option if you're looking for something that's versatile, reliable and, of course, fuel efficient. But, as gas mileage has become increasingly important in people's buying decisions, automakers have been loading up their vehicle lines with their own hybrid offerings, including big sedans and SUVs in the mix.
Cars.com recently published a list of the best hybrids for the money in each segment. They've ranked the green options in every category from subcompact to large luxury sedans. Check out the top ranked in the Luxury Full-Size Sedan Category.
Luxury Full-Size Sedan - BMW ActiveHybrid 740 Li
Sticker Price: $84,300
Invoice Price: $77,555
Fuel Economy: 22 mpg City, 30 mpg Highway
Credit BMW: Driving the hybrid version of its 740 sedan doesn’t feel a whole lot different than driving the regular version of the car. Which is to say it feels pretty darned awesome. The power in the 740 comes courtesy of a 3.0-liter, six-cylinder engine that’s combined with a 55-horsepower electric motor and lithium ion battery pack.

Among those to make their debut was the highly anticipated BMW X1 XDrive2.8i.
Slotting under the popular X3, the X1 has been available outside the US borders and has been hugely successful.
Now US BMW fans no longer need to wait as the X1 will be available this summer.
2 New models to also make their debut are the BMW M6 twins in coupe and convertible form.
Each packing an earth pounding 560HP, they are able to reach 60MPH in a staggering 4 seconds.
The crowned jewel of the show was the BMW 6 series Gran Coupe.
Shown in a stunning Frozen Bronze metallic, the Gran Coupe is based on a longer wheelbase 6 series platform.
The Gran Coupe will make it’s showroom debut in June of 2012.
Always crowd pleasers and still drawing much admiration are the BMWi cars.
The sporty i8 with it’s scissor doors and the i3 with it’s barn style doors serve 2 different ends of the market.

JMK BMW Begins delivering ActiveE by Manny Mantunes
Almost 2 months after Tom Moloughney took delivery of the very first BMW ActiveE from JMK BMW,
We, have begun delivering the all electric BMW based on the 1 series to the general public.
Last night, Mr Chris Neff of Mendham NJ picked up his ActiveE to commence the deliveries of ActiveE to VIP and Freinds and Family on the East Coast. Mr Neff is no stranger to Electric Vehicles having owned a MiniE electric car for a year.
Excited to get back into an EV, Mr Neff can't wait to start logging many miles without the added cost of fuel. Seeing as gas prices are on the rise in the NY Metro area, he's excited about the timing of his ActiveE.
We would like to congratulate Mr Neff on his new BMW ActiveE and wish him many many miles of trouble free Electric Driving.
