740e

I had the opportunity to test drive a 740e last week. I just drove it on city streets. I loved it. In Sport mode the acceleration was excellent for a 4700 lb. car. In EV mode the acceleration was adequate for city driving, but not nearly as good as my i8 in electric mode. My i8 is much more of a sports car and the 740e is really luxurious.

I'm averaging around 43 mpg in my i8. Most of my gasoline use only comes on long trips using the ICE. Around town I use E mode most of the time. The all electric range of the 740e is supposed to be longer than the i8 because of a larger battery capacity.

Has anyone here had the chance to drive the 740e? Impressions?
