My i3 is coming off lease shortly, and given lack of any meaningful investment into i-platform by BMW, my next EV wont be made in Germany. Sadly, same applies to MB and VW groups.
We test drove a bunch of EV options over the past few months, but only Leaf SL and Model 3 were going to fit into the "small fun car" category that i3 currently occupies in the garage. And then Musk dropped the prices for TM3s by ~$6K all around, and it was game over.
Thus, after two 24 month i3 lease cycles, we ordered a black/black TM3P to replace it.
Proper 4-door sedan with enough space for two adults to sit in comfort in the back. 310 mile range. 3.2 second 0-60.
Proper performance suspension, real performance tires (Michelin Pilot Sport 4S) Handles just about as well as my BMW M3, but a bit heavier, yet faster. We'll see how it does on track later this year.
Thank you BMW for introducing us to the EV universe. Sadly, you stopped investing into EVs, and had nothing new to offer seven years after the i3 launch.
