BMW i series owners (i3, i8, X5 40e) are gathering at the Long Beach Formula E race this Saturday April 2, 2016 to organize the longest parade of BMW cars in history. The previous record was set in 2008 by 178 BMW Isettas (the car pictured above), arguably much cooler than an i3 which has been compared to a grumpy porpoise.

As geeky as all this sounds, if it helps promote cleaner transportation it’s probably worth giving it a whirl. Register here if you are a licensed BMW i series owner and want to take part in this fiasco. (Imagine a couple hundred electric vehicles trekking to Long Beach and then looking for a place to plug in.)
