Maybe. I was at the plant a couple of weeks ago and there were 2 i3's in the parking lot. I don't know if they were employee cars or company cars. There were several unused charging stations.

August is typically vacation time in Europe. So if you go in August, you'll be competing with the locals for hotels, resturants, etc. I expect traffic would be worse as well.
