We’re very seriously contemplating buying one of the last i3’s with the range extenders- so a 2019 with low mileage
Our driving is very much two halves - lots is london city driving and we know this will be perfect, but we also drive 550miles to see family in south west France 3-4 times a year
Are we mad to contemplate an i3 for this? The electric network in France is getting better the range extender would give me peace of mind - but can anyone advise on doing long journeys and how long the battery tends to last when doing a steady 75mph on the motorway
We have dog so we are used to stopping every 2-3 hours anyway so figure as long as we do this where we can recharge and have the backup of the petrol we should be ok?
And can anyone explain what the ‘coding’ is all about that I’ve been reading in some threads ? Something to do with how much charge the battery holds ?
