    Yeah. Knew the biggest sin before watching. Tough to love that front grill If they could just get rid of whoever is approving this or gently redirect them this would be an incredible vehicle.

    I’m sure every car salesman loves it when a manufacturer’s marketing team says, “don’t worry, it’ll grow on them” 😂

    For the one pedal driving, you have to put it in "B" mode which is done by pulling the shifter back again after pulling it once to put it in "D" (drive mode).

    They designed it like an SUV but it feels so much like a minivan to me. Maybe its the angles but the cockpit and the back give heavy minivan vibes

    The design feels like what would happen if someone who wanted a sleek, futuristic car and someone who really dug those early 90s glass and metal tables fought.

    Grabbing a portion of the speaker grille fabric as part of the interior door handle is an interesting design choice. I'm curious how it would look after a couple of months of lotioned hands or bits of hand sanitizer will affect that material.

    Touch buttons that you have to actually look down at in a car are crazy. Wild that they are even allowed legally to do that.

    For one pedal driving you move the gear shift down once more while in drive and it will be in the "B" mode, that will allow one pedal driving

    Edit: you can turn it on or off while driving

    Hand gestures to adjust settings would be a game changer in a Tesla that does not have buttons. Especially useful when driving. Would love to see this type of update for cars that have the inside camera.
  • Weird/ugly design but i think this car will grow on you. I feel the motion controls (for volume and next track) are more for the passengers in the back. Lets say you are driving paying attention (as you should) and your kid/person in the back wants to change the song, they can do so without bugging you. I like some of the features others not so much, i do hope that the good features do get adopted into other cars

    The capacitive touch and delay make it feel very unintuitive and i think that would bother me to most out of the car being that you have to interact with it everyday. I love tactile feedback

    I enjoy these reviews so much! And it’s good to know you’re not sugar coating it.

    The plastic grill is the biggest flaw for me.
  • All you have to do click down in the drive selection switch to enter B mode and it will allow you down to zero quite quickly. Then toggle it down again to go back into D and coast. It auto brakes to cars in front of you in D mode so sometimes you think you're in one pedal mode but it's really not. If you want it to come to a complete stop then you need to be in B mode.

    Gotta say i really love this channel. Cant afford anything showcased, but its fun to watch

    So I got mine a few months ago and I'm in the UK so there are some slight differences.
    1. Yes the front looks like bunny teeth till you know that it's self healing material and protects the sensors and driver aids which is pretty awesome.
    2. My kids use the gesture gimmick to change the songs and increase the volume all the time 😂
    3. I do not like BMW but every time I get into my car it's like being in a warm blanket on a cold winter's day. Really amazing feeling.
    4. The absolute worst part I have with this car is managing the aircon, why do you need to open some rubbish app to increase or decrease heat...
    My kids love it, wife loves it, grandson loves it so I love it.
    My personal issue with it is the range. On paper I'm meant to get 215m but am only getting 180 at a push.
    Again, I'm not a fan or BMW at all and my choice after a number of test drives was either BMW or the MACH-E and am happy with my choice of the BMW IX
    Hope this helps anyone looking to buy the car
  • I came so close to getting one of these last month, but at the last second went with the x5 phev and it was an excellent decision. about the same price but the x5 has real buttons. honestly its the better car

    I was trying to get one of these not long ago, but then gave up because of a lot of things just like what you've pointed out or at least highlighted in the video. Many odd choices. Not everyone the rides with me would be tall enough to not have a hard plastic square behind their head in the headrest. I frequently have one or two kids riding in the back especially, but in is it a good idea to put virtually flat heat registers on the floor of a vehicle where small pebbles and anything else will just likely end up falling into? From all the footage I watched, I also though the quality of the interior was surprisingly not up the level I would expect from BMW....which is a shame because I was seriously considering this one to be my first EV.

    As a massive BMW fan I would say calling this ugly is the biggest compliment it's ever gonna get. I would rather look at a Hyundai, and if you said that to me a few years ago I would've laughed.

    I've come to like the front look, very distinctive & reminiscent of BMWs of many years ago with the very large upright front grill.
