I have a 2015 i3 rex that has 68,500 miles. I bought it used last year with 32,000 miles. Awesome car
I never understood the whole "city car" label. It's great at speeds on the interstate.
You seriously put 36,500 miles on the i3 in ONE YEAR? WOW!
That's exactly 365 mils a day. When does that Rex come up for air?
Good to know that motorcycle engine is tough.
It works out to about 100 miles a day
At work I use a 16 amp 208v outlet. My work commute is 52 miles each way, or 104 miles in a day. I use the level 1 charger at home which provides me with a full battery when I wake up. Since my commute is 52 miles, I have about 20-25% battery remaining when I get home, and the level 1 is enough to top me off by my morning commute. Then, weekend trips, and errands. I've gone weeks without the Rex kicking in. Having the ability to charge at work helps big time. My car is plugged into something almost anytime I'm not driving, although I am able to unplug my car and move it for a few hours during my lunch break when it's fully charged
I'm also averaging ~100 miles/day in mine.
98 mile/day commute, but almost every day the car gets used for something else, also.
I do 90% of my commute at the speed 94mph speed limiter, so not driving it efficiently at all.
I have a 32 amp, 240v charger at home and a 16 amp, 240V charger at work, so it's just under half a charge when I get to work and just under half a charge when I get home.
Between my commute and using it for weekend errands, we're spending ~$600 less per month on gas. We bought the car for $19,100, so it'll be paid for in ~32 months just with money saved on gas.
CPO 2017 BEV. Bought the car with 25,000 miles, need to get it to 50,000 within 1 year to get full value out of the new car warranty, and then all we can the second year to get the most out of the CPO warranty... though so far it has needed no warranty work.
