Guests at The Ritz-Carlton, Istanbul, can experience an electric green car drive during their stay. Drive the world's first luxury electric car, BMW i3, and explore the city in an eco-friendly way

Club Level guests at The Ritz-Carlton, Istanbul, are now able to experience an environmentally friendly drive as part of the hotel’s social responsibility program, ‘Community Footprints’. As an alternative to regular vehicles, guests are able to borrow one of the World’s first luxury electric cars, the BMWi3, and take it on a complimentary spin throughout the city.

For up to four hours, guests can make use of the electric BMWi3, allowing them to experience the exceptionally quiet and refined car, which has won a host of global environmental and design awards, but without the worry of creating more pollution.  Booked through the dedicated Club Concierge, this latest initiative from The Ritz-Carlton, Istanbul, gives guests access to a sustainable visionary vehicle with all the benefits and comfort expected of a BMW.

Of course, for those more actively inclined, bicycles may still be borrowed, with an optional picnic to enjoy upon reaching the destination!
