It is usually the case with all these new tech cars (Mini E, Honda FCX, etc). What you are really doing is paying BMW for helping them develop the technology in the real world. The car is really an "almost finished" prototype that needs to go back to the factory at the end of the lease term for them to go over every little thing so when they come out with the "finished" car it has less problems than the prototype, and hopefully more range and shorter charging times.
