Being able to accelerate fast and the wife doesn't realise as their's hardly no engine noise. I had a BMW loaner car for a couple of days last week and couldn't wait to take it back due to EV's have instant acceleration.
I was pleasantly surprised by how zippy my i3 is at freeway speeds. No need to wait for kickdown, or revs to build. A quick stab at the throttle and zip... Of course, that 200 yards of "zip" costs 1-2 miles of range
