The price per square meter in Tokyo is the highest in the world.

The border between the car and a technology product – such as an iPhone – is almost nonexistent in this type of car, it is no wonder the name of the expert, clearly inspired by the Genius Bar Apple . Anyway, this dealer-showroom, called BMW i Megacity Studio – is already operating in Japan. And hiding a few secrets.
For example, your ceiling is covered with solar panels that are loaded with the available test i3. The excess energy is used to feed electricity to the showroom.
