Inspired by the Tuxedo, one of the most enduring and stylish garments in menswear, the is a collaborative effort between both the Mr Porter and BMW i design teams, encapsulating  style and substance in one motorized package.

As Mr Toby Bateman, Managing Director, Mr Porter, puts it, "Working with the best in class in the automotive industry felt like a very natural step and we were thrilled to collaborate with the team at BMW.  We have kept all the high specification components one would expect from BMW and added a bespoke interior and exterior finish, which is very much in keeping with our aesthetic. As pioneers of the electric vehicle BMW i was the perfect partner in this project, as we share similar brand values and both relish the opportunity to be the first to market for projects such as this. We also hope to make the car available in other markets in the future."
