Out of interest I put it in Sport mode when a motorbike came along side (dual carriageway) at the lights. Think I gave him a right shock as I stayed with him up to about 25 - 30 mph and he had to give it full beans to leave me. Of course I totally took my foot off the gas...err leccy...when I reached the speed limit of 40mph.

I may be 'Driving Miss Daisy' most of the time but it's nice to indulge in a bit of 'ev grin' fun now and again.

Yep, Sport mode away from the lights really does catch people out, especially when they have to change gear and you don't :)

I totally love my short weekend drives when I know I'm not going to be in any danger of running out of battery power. With the Sport Mode button pushed and the gear stick flicked in to L and it just goes like a rocket. That acceleration from the lights is fantastic, but when you're on faster roads it's got that torque at whatever speed you're doing :-D

Why in L mode? You like it driving like an i3?;)

See profile location. (so, like you, I do.)

and I'm not just talking about the participants of this thread @purpleperil can be included too!
What are you saying about Ampera drivers from Hucknall? ;)

Although, the Anesley bypass and Long Lane both make for entertaining places to show how much torque the Ampera has. :D
