...and according to Schwarzenbauer in the latest news release, it may never see the production line.

The 1 series electric and the mini e were engineering exercises where they took the info some dedicated enthusiastic drivers would give them big feed back and some logistical info. A manufacturer hates " converted" anything as they simply aren't optimized or efficient.

Now the 2015 i3 is really the ****. Get past the looks. It actually isn't a bad vehicle. Lots of bells and whistles. Lots of techie stuff.

If I didn't already have 5 cars at home I would get one in a heartbeat for my wifey. She works 5 miles from home. A perfect senator.

I'm betting the next version of whatever "I" will be pretty well sorted as far as BMW is concerned. And I'm not talking 100k i8's.

I'm looking forward to it actually

Somebody posted a photo last month of his new F56 Mini at a dealership with some Mini-Es in the background! Might have been NJ.

Forgive the momentary diversion: I strongly remember a time when the idea of a 2 car family was as exotic as 'rock 'n roll'.
