With our daily commute about to go from 2 1/2 miles a day to 40, we plan to take a serious look at an i3. With fuel around $9.00/gallon and a £5,000 govt. subsidy, an electric car comes close to making economic sense. If BMW drops out, there is always Renault, but I'd rather have a BMW. (The UK wait list for the Leaf grew so long that Nissan stopped offering reservations)
There are public charging stations in the London / Oxford area and also around the Nissan plant.
There are no public charging stations in my local area. Just a single charging station halfway between here and Manchester would make a huge difference.
The models and equipment (standard and optional) illustrated in this post reflect my misunderstanding of vehicles supplied by BMW AG to the German market. In other EU member states, the truthyness of my posts may vary. Please ignore this post. Subject to change.
