A new video uploaded on YouTube is showing one of the most interesting “gadget green” cars out there, the BMW i3, in an attempt to park itself.
Did you ever wonder how the Parking Assistant system of the new BMW i3 actually works? Well, in case you did, than the video posted below is what you have been looking for because you can check out the “green” city car in “action”. The electric vehicle can park itself without any operations from the driver needed thanks to its radar which is scanning big enough parking spots and when this is finally found, the car is doing everything by itself.
The video posted below is showing the Romanian rally driver, Vali Porcisteanu, activating the Parking Assistant and then jumping out of the car through the window, in order to prove that the model is actually parking itself. As a small reminder, the BMW i3 is taking its power from an electric motor, with 170 HP (125 kW) and 250 Nm (184 lb-ft) of torque, connected to a single-speed transmission sending power to the rear wheels. This can be backed up by a range extender in the shape of the 650cc two-cylinder petrol engine, which will add an extra 34 HP.
