Re: BMW i8 Faster than an M3 using 1/3rd less fuel than a Pr

But it can use its electric motors to make a big dent in fuel use too when on ICE mode. Look at the Le Mans winning hybrids.

This is a 1.5l hybrid with the performance better than a 4l M3.

Re:

Because it has a 231 bhp petrol engine with the performance of a car that is ~400 bhp.

The title of the thread is "BMW i8 Faster than an M3 using 1/3rd less fuel than a Prius!", don't you think that's making a dent in the high performance car class? It may not be zero, but it's a hell of a lot less than comparable cars. Not everyone can or wants to buy such a high performance pure EV, but that market isn't going away soon.
