Priced to compete with an M5 based on the article I read which it beats by ~$20k. Obviously the infrastructure isn't in place for road tripping, it's a city life/commuting car.

Pricing is disgusting. Parcel shelf is the only standard option. The rest, including electric seats, mirrors, fog lamps, reverse senors, etc, etc are cost options. High cost at that for everything that should be standard anyway.

It's about the same relative to competitors as in the US. It's pitched against an S-Class/7 series market the saleswoman in Santa Monica told me.

mmm - similar pricing as a Ghibli - might be an environmentally friendly option as a daily! ;-)

And surely all test and performance data comes from a relatively standard car.

Load it with electrical goodies, and surely your performance will drop due to extra weight, as will range and time between charge....


"range anxiety" !

in other words a 400i running on 6 cyl would be more efficient


i dont get this electric shit....especially if charged over night and a power station is burning coal to charge a car...wtf

and dont start on that preeeeus (fudge-packer-vehicle) Poofter Car shitbox, got some great horror stories from Europecar with their fleet.....they stopped buying the HOS's......people didnt want to pay extra over an audi/ calais etc to save the planet

Yeah but that burning coal argument really comes back to our governments over the last 50 years not doing anything to change our dependency on coal for electricity.

I've been pro nuclear for as long as I can remember.

You can say I'm wrong, but my garage doesn't agree with that statement!!!
