  • Really nice first EV

    By Ron on Tuesday, December 24, 2019

    [Note, this is the "BEV" (Battery EV) model, not the "REX" (Range-Extender) version.... which I ruled out since I wanted to completely get away from "gas" and all of its "service" issues] "For the price"... it was a great used-EV decision. I say that because mine (CPO 2015 BEV Tera World with [all] options) was originally a $49k car, and my final price was under $18k with 21k miles in late 2018. This car is a bit like the "Tardis"... larger on the inside that it LOOKS to be on the outside. This is because of the 'unique' body design proportions that make you think it's a tiny "micro-car"... but it's far, FAR from that. Interior room is honestly very surprising... especially in width. Mine replaced a 1998 Oldsmobile Aurora, a large car, and I'm more than comfortable in it! The back seat has headroom for two 6' passengers, and the downstairs is spacious too. ;-) (it's a Tardis thing) When I first got mine, I was only commuting 34 miles a day (total)... so the 80 mile range was far more than I needed. However, with my new job, I'm now commuting just over 80 miles a day... which puts me well out of range for a round-trip (esp. in winter)... so I am forced to charge while at work, every day. Now I'm looking to replace it with the 2017 model with the 94Ah battery, which should give me round-trip range again (so long as I drive conservatively, and it's not below freezing temperatures). At just over 2600 pounds (and most of that is located very low, incl. the 500-600 pound battery pack, for a very low C.G.), it's a blast to drive. It can easily be driven single-pedal mode (rarely use brakes, due to the high level regenerative braking). The suspension is tuned for a "sporty" ride... it does not 'ride soft' like a large 3700 pound American car... so don't expect it to. The 15-60MPH acceleration is a blast... and BMW says it beats every other BMW model from 0-40 MPH. Very inexpensive to operate if most of your charging is at home or on "free access" charger stations! (some utility companies do this to entice people to buy EVs, and some retailers do this to attract business). I have a "electric home heating" utility discount (because of my heat pump), and I get VERY low electric rates... which can result in $0.02/mile operating cost. My biggest complaint: Since mine has the optional 20" wheels (which I do like), there are ZERO snow/winter tires made for that wheel size, world-wide, and I was not informed of this. Required me to buy a set of aftermarket 19" winter wheels to have snow tires on (tire rack). You didn't hear this from me, but it's "user customizable" through the OBD port and a phone app... which for a 60yo techno-nerd (me), is a "plus". As a lifelong design engineer, the design engineering and CFRP (carbon fiber reinforced plastic) construction are what got me excited about it... the "used market" price closed the deal.
  • Lowest running cost and most reliable car owned

    This is easily the most reliable car with lowest running cost that I've ever owned. Much lower maintenance than an ICE car. Electricity is much cheaper than gas (125mpgE). On top of that, it's quick, well built, and the interior in the TERA edition is absolutely stunning. Friends compliment my car's interior all the time, and say how much nicer it is than the Tesla interior. The gas range extender is a life saver when I need to drive a couple hundred miles in a single day. I've taken this car on long road trips. It can be done, and it's quite fun while you're at it!
  • i3 is very fun to drive in city traffic

    This car is good for commuting or errands and very fun to drive. It is very fast taking off. The back seat is not really usable other than storage. The bluetooth phone is poor quality sound and the speakers are marginal for the price of the car. Overall, as long as you know what you're getting, if you're still interested I really like the car.
