"Speaking as someone on their second i3 Rex, I can say that it only really works as a second car."
For some people, that is. Depends on where you are, and your needs, of course. We live a long ways from really universal charging infrastructure, but manage just fine with a Rex. The Bev we had before was not quite adequate in the winter months. This is our only car, and meets all of our needs, even though we are 25 miles from a smallish town with shopping, and 80 miles from a major city. Our nearest BMW dealership is about 120 miles away. Infrastructure is improving at a reasonable pace in our region. When we first got the Bev about 14 months ago, there was only one level 2 charging station anywhere near us. We put one in at our place and put it on plugshare. Just last week a local casino put in 4 new units. A resort on the way to a town our relatives live in just installed 4 charging units which will be operatitonal as soon as the park department gets around to it. The gaps are being filled in. I would not hesitate to take this car on a long trip. I am in no hurry, so I don't mind stopping and looking for antiques, having a meal, or reading a book while charging... and of course I can always just add some gas if I want to keep going without stopping for long. I'm sure there are plenty of people who could get by just fine with a either Bev or a Rex as their only car.
