From Katie Spence comes details about BMW’s all-electric i3, compared to GM’s Volt and Tesla’s Model S:
Not only does BMW’s i3 go farther on pure battery power, but with the purchase of the optional range extender, range anxiety goes way down. More pointedly, the base MSRP for the BMW is only $2,000 more than the Volt. I don’t know about you, but if I had to decide between spending $39,000 for a Volt, or $2,000 more for a BMW, I’m going with the BMW, hands down.
Seems to me to be somewhere between the Volt and Tesla. I’m not much interested in electric vehicles until range goes higher than gasoline powered cars, and charging is as quick as filling up a tank of gas.
