Any day of the week, BMW's new i8 is a buy over a Tesla. Any one remember Daewoo? This is how people will remember the Tesla once the i8 is released. Competition is going to ruin TSLA but you can credit them for making EV cool.
Hybrid cars are stupid. You have 2 systems to maintained. They take twice of space on board. You still need to change oil, xmission fluid. Both internal combustion engine and xmission are overly complicated and expensive to maintain. One more thing, they are dirty.
With long range EV available, hybrid is the WORST idea.
The BMW i8 is no ordinary sports car. It's an icon of progress — an extraordinary evolution of The Ultimate Driving Machine®. As a plug-in hybrid, this revolutionary vehicle combines the power of a TwinPower Turbo engine and the efficiency of an all-electric motor for an exhilarating driving experience that's every bit BMW.
is BWM serious? what are they thinking coming out with clear plastic piece of rubbish like that? Clearly a PR stunt that will go nowhere. Can't face it Elon and boys are going to put them out of business I guess....
In what way is it a buy over a Tesla? Specifically, what features or performance make it better? Est price is $150,000-around $50,000 more than a Model S. Very curious why you'd spend $50,000 more for this car.
