The BMW i3 is BMW’s first mass production all electric car. This compcat electric car has a 160km range on full-electric power. With The same interior size as a BMW 3 Series, the all-new BMW i3 is a remarkable car. Also, this month at the 2015 International Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, BMW is showcasing a fully automated 2015 BMW i3 with the ability to park itself without relying on a GPS signal!
They call the feature Remote Valet Parking. According to Edmunds, “BMW has equipped a new i3 electric model with Remote Valet Parking, a still more advanced system that adds the capability of parking itself — with or without a driver — even in large multi-story garages, where GPS signals are often unreliable. “When activated by a Smartwatch, BMW’s Remote Valet Parking Assistant uses a variety of sensors and a digital site plan to guide the vehicle through the garage levels and around posts and other structures, avoiding even moving obstacles that appear suddenly, like other cars. Once it settles into a space, the i3 locks itself and awaits the signal to return and pick up the driver.” Holy cow! 🙂 While you ponder that, let’s have a look at this interesting vehicle… When you need service on your Ford Focus, or any other domestic or foreign car, give us a call here at Elite Auto Repair in Tempe!
