Zero emissions
BMW's i3 coupe (shown) is set to become the automaker's first zero-emission, mass-produced vehicle. The car, which made its debut at the L.A. auto show this past November, will help lead the wave of what German experts anticipate will be 1 million electric vehicles on their roads by 2020.
