No, cup holders are available. They're optional in Europe, guess is they will be standard on US cars.

But in many places in EU it is don't drink liquor and drive but have your car full of rowdy, intoxicated and those drinking more while one tries to drive. Cultural and legal differences abound, but one is not superior to another.

I think its dumb to not have cupholders on a daily driver.Whether in germany or in the states.what if your going on a long drive.you want a place to put your water instead of having it rolling around the car. just my .02 I drink a lot of water

It's not only cooled, but since it's an "M" model it also makes Martini's.....

Shaken, not stirred of course....
