Our daily commute is 74 miles round trip. That comes to a hefty number of miles per year
That doesn't even include non-work-commute mileage.
At least that sounds like it will be within range to complete without the REx being needed. My wife's commute is around 90 miles so likely she would need the REx most days, which starts to defeat the point I think. However, as it's M25 and M4 it is a relatively economical run.
The more I look at the figures I think the i3 will make a superb used purchase at 2 or 3 years old.
Even at 74 mile range, we'd routinely be using the REX unfortunately--particularly in the winter. Plus a couple evenings in the week when we need to do an additional 10 or so miles (quick shop or to the gym).
Our commute is on the M4 as well; the i3 isn't great at motorway speeds but that doesn't matter at commuter times because we barely break 60mph at those times, with an average trip speed of just 30mph.
