The BMW i3 is not a vehicle you’d associate with rallying and for good reason. It is a small electric hatchback seemingly more suited to driving around the city than going anywhere near a gravel track.
Nevertheless, Finnish rally driver Rauno Aaltonen set out to discover if the i3 has any credentials as a rallying machine.
Rather surprisingly, Aaltonen is able to quickly make use of the vehicle’s instantaneous torque and expertly drift it around corners without a second thought.
While you shouldn’t expect to see the i3 in a rally championship anytime soon, owners now know that the car won’t shake apart when the hooning gets tough.
