    thanks, i'm not sure when they kick over to the next percent. apparently, not at 50%.

    another funny thing is that i stopped and took the pic as soon as hv and ev clicked over, but the odo read 60,001.

    Haven’t really decided for sure yet. I know for a fact I will not buy a brand new one. I also like the fact of not having a car payment. I believe I will run this one into the ground. I’m starting to look for a replacement lithium battery for a back up.

    We have had cool temps here 25-30 degrees. Difficult to judge, will know more once spring and summer arrive. I have noticed the car comes out of EV Mode (EV) light on display turns off.

    Updated as of Saturday7/6/19. Regarding battery degradation, very little from what I can tell. As everyone knows batteries work better in the warmer climates. My wife’s PIP charges slower from brake regeneration and also depletes slower in full EV mode. She has 45k EV miles. Overall very satisfied.

    well done!

    i'm at 43,500 ev, and have lost about 15% battery since new. mostly in the first 2 years. i used to get about 16 miles around town in the best ev weather, now about 14.

    Thats great. My Wife's PIP has 45k EV and 125k HV. 170k+. I can definitely
    see the difference between the 2 cars.How many total miles on your car? I am actually looking at the BMW i3 2014-2015. You can buy them for a decent price. your thoughts?

    Thinking to get a 2012 Plug-In in the near future and hope to rely 90% on EV mode. do u guys see much degration for earlier models? i heard Nissan Leaf and Mitsubutshi Outlander PHEV gets very bad degration.

    i have a bit over 64k total.

    i like the i-3, but i would read bob wilsons tome before buying one. german engineering can be expensive, and you get to know the service manager really well. nothing like japanese quality.

    welcome!
    expect around 15% degradation. best thing to do is charge it, reset a trip meter and drive it under conditions you would expect if you bought it. see how far it goes before the engine comes on.

    all the best!(y)
