Hi. I am considering buying a 2017 i3 (two choices - one with 11K on it and one with 14K on it). I think they are both 60Ah, because neither has the Range Extender.
I drive conservatively, and my round-trip commute is ~ 30 miles of secondary roads. The farthest I drive normally would be ~25 miles to the airport, and I'd like this car to be my daily driver for the next four to six years.
I'm nervous about buying a fully EV because I don't know a lot about them, particularly how long I can expect the battery to last. They seem to be very expensive to replace (close to what I would be paying for the car, ~$18K). I expect to be able to charge on public chargers at least two days a week, and the rest of the charging would be off of the wall at home. At the end of 2021, our office is moving to a new space, and that may have chargers as well - still trying to get that question answered.
Am I a good candidate for an EV, or should I just get a gas/electric hybrid until my commute is shorter or my budget increases?
