Well, just to keep things interesting, I just found a 2018 s BEV. About the same mileage as the 2019 BEV I was looking at, $1000 less than the ‘19, both Giga, and the ‘18 has the benefit of the premium sound system that everyone raves about.
What do you guys think about the real world range (especially if mostly freeway for the 90ish mile round trip that would be about the max I would ever like to do without a charge) of the ‘18 s BEV?
The ‘18 brings the sport option as well as the premium sound to the table (and it’s grey, which I like better than the blue).
Edited to add: do I need winter tires for the s if I live in a mild climate (more rain than anything in the winter)?
I live in So Cal. During the summers I consistently get 125-130 miles per charge. In winter (rain, colder weather, etc) I get around 110-120 per charge. I go to Orange County and back consistently throughout the year....stop and go traffic. 120 miles round trip. I average 40 MPH and when I arrive home I still have about 18-20% charge. I have a 2018 i3s BEV with 49k miles on it, sunroof, etc.
I had a 2017 i3 some years back as a lease. I've had 2 other S models (REXs). It's night and day between the regular i3 and the S...and quite a bit of difference even between the REX and BEV S. The BEV feels lighter, more nimble, is considerably quicker on the roll...considerably...even from the REX S. It also rides better...just feels more chuck-able and controllable.
