The latest BMW electric car is a sleek, compact and environmentally friendly way to get around this city this year and it comes with an even cooler solar-charging carport.

While most car companies have made a conscious effort to offer environmentally friendly auto alternatives to city dwellers, charging them electrically still has a negative impact on the environment. For the release of the 2014 BMW electric car, BMW engineered this cleverly innovative solar carport that harnesses the energy of the sun to charge up your vehicle. The solar carport is designed with an open concept structure and a roof made entirely of solar panels. During the day drivers can keep their BMW electric car charging in the sun so that it's ready to ride come the evening.
