Re: Help! mY 2016 rex gas range never goes over 50

The range is the car's computer "guesstimate" based on the last 20 minutes or so of driving style & conditions, temperature, efficiency setting, climate control settings, etc - both electric and extender - since the extender is just an on-board gas-powered electricity generator. Mine shows 50 right ...

Re: Next model after 120ah i3

Here's hoping that charging becomes easy, fast, and fairly priced everywhere. It's going to take awhile. Hear, Hear! :D And I think it will come. We are still "early adopters". In the next 5 years several major car manufacturers will be approaching 50% of their line-up being BEV's or PEVs (includin...

Re: Next model after 120ah i3

I think economics plays an important part in getting an infrastructure of CCS units rolling out. Gas prices in the UK and EU are $5.50 to $5.80 a gallon US equivalent - which makes alternatives attractive - and pushes the market. Auto manufacturing is a "world market" even for US based entities like...

Re: Just venting...

I'd send a nice email, with a link to your post, to the General Manager of the Dealership, or snail mail if you can't find the manager's email. The BMW/MINI Dealership I used to service my old MINI Cooper 10 or so years ago used cheap paper seat cover when the car was in service. Half the time the c...

Re: Chevy Volt Discontinued

BMW is not going to sell the REx in Europe anymore Yeah, the 2019 BMW i3 BEV will have a range just in excess of 150 miles (which is about what the older year i3 Rex's get in total), which makes sense for Europe, with typically shorter commutes, etc. For North America the magic range number everyon...

Re: Servicing i3 REx

The Rex engine is the same one that BMW installs in their C650gt maxi-scooter https://www.webbikeworld.com/bmw-c-650-gt-review/ The C650 GT maintenance schedule shows changing the sparkplugs when mileage on the engine reaches 40,000 km (24,000 miles). https://www.webbikeworld.com/bmw-scooter-mainten...
