The idea of around with the extra as well as a tank of ‘dirty’ does detract from the of the pure electric version

There may be slightly less for the extender if the car itself helped to eek out by encouraging optimum battery under braking. This is an that both Toyota and have nailed in their hybrids, which turn driving into an addictive thanks to their precise, readouts that allow you to the most effective way to brake in to harvest energy. The i3’s ‘swingometer’ similar in style to venerable econometer is too subtle and at the bottom of the driver’s display to be enough to influence driving

And the impression of progression is as from the driver’s seat as it is the kerbside. The mastery of the i3 is its balance of innovation, with a reassuring and logic in key areas, meaning it being sidelined as ‘weird’ by looking to fan the flames of change In short it works brilliantly as an EV and most importantly as a car.
