Spotted: ActiveE 1 series

In Hamilton, MA no less. Don't usually see many cool cars unless I go into the city but saw this one going north on Route 1A.

I saw one yesterday in Ayer when I left autox. It's the third one I've seen, although maybe the three I've seen is the same one?

I was under the impression they were very rare, maybe they've leased out more since they started?

Not that rare. Leipzig made(and is still making them!) more ActiveE's than 1M's!

Sort of an old thread, but over the past month I've literally seen like ten of these things.

Two in Shrewsbury, three on 95 between Norwood and Wakefield and others putting around. There was one in the lot at BMW of Peabody with plates on it, too.

These are rare, right?! MA drivers must be eating them up.

Saw my first one in Andover on Rt. 28 a few weeks ago.

According to http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/BMW_ActiveE, 1100 worldwide, 700 for the US, so even more rare than 1M.

Of course on the North Shore there is the Turner ActiveE, although from the side with it's 335i wheels, lowered suspension and removed graphics, it looks like a regular 1 series: http://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fb...type=3&theater
