I came across a BMW i 3 electric back in july, it pulled out of a junction a few hundred yards in front of me. when I got to the junction he was just about out of sight in the distance. It took nearly everything i had to catch him and remember I'm pulling just over 200bhp in my NC. I caught up to him and was amazed to see it was this small city electric hatch back, i was so taken a back that I looked at its performance spec when I got back home.
Turns out that it takes only 4.9 seconds to go from 50mph to 74.5 , only 0.6 seconds slower than a DC - equipped BMW M4. !! They state its top speed is limited to 93mph for efficiency reasons. :hot:
