He needn't worry, eventually they'll remove the ICE so it'll be much better.Looks like he's done a review for the Sunday Times.
"I do not believe that the solution to our energy crisis is to be found by developing a car that has a normal petrol engine as well as an electric motor that has to be powered by an extremely heavy bank of batteries."
Don't let my little snippet fool you - he actually quite likes it!
About 20 years ago he predicted the demise of diesel (just before diesel became increadibly popular) with the line (something like) "In 5 years time the old things using diesel will be tractors".Oh Jeremy
I've wrung the neck of both this week. I couldn't perceive a difference in straight line acceleration. The i8 is on another planet on a road with bends in it though. Very nervous about getting a Model S to even to 60 on a twisty b-road - too much heft and too soft. No such worries in the i8 - it's a car to which you can really give a good going over.It's performance does not seem to be as good as the top range Tesla's either, despite the latter being a much larger car.
I'm sure BMW will sell all they can make though.
Folks, come to Great Malvern (WR14 3DS) Sunday 21st for 12:00noon and see it for yourself & maybe book a test drive?The i8 is on another planet on a road with bends in it. Very nervous about getting a Model S to even to 60 on a twisty b-road - too much heft and too soft. No such worries in the i8 - it's a car to which you can really give a good going over. But that outcome isn't unexpected given the objectives of either vehicle. I didn't quite realise how limited the bootspace in the i8 is though!
