10 cool electric cars of the future

BMW Concept ActiveE
3 of 12

Why it's green: Runs on battery power.

Why it's cool: Built to drive like a BMW.

In a nutshell, the BMW Concept ActiveE is a battery-powered version of the BMW 1 Series coupe. Assuming BMW eventually offers it to the public, that's good news for eco-minded auto enthusiasts with a small family. The BMW 1 Series is the BMW brand's smallest four-seater, with room for two (short) passengers in the back seat. BMW's Mini brand has already introduced a small test fleet of electric cars in the United States. The BMW Concept ActiveE will serve a similar testing role for the BMW brand.
