How does this compare to other electric vehicles? This seems like it would be a bit heavier or is that wrong?

Weight specs seem pretty good to me for an electric vehicle. I wouldn't consider this heavy or light. I'm sure BMW put all their tech into it to make sure its as light as they could get it at an affordable price.

From the reviews I read BMW tried to use the lightest possible materials in as many things as they could, including the interior. Don't think they can drop too much more weight without the price of the car skyrocketing.
