I am not surprised to see BMW accused of misleading advertising. I looked at the i3 when I was shopping to replace my 2011. The descriptive literature claimed 100-mile range and did not display battery capacity. The salesman could not tell me the battery capacity, but claimed to have driven over 90 miles on the freeway with climate control use and with some remaining range. I ruled out the i3 after confirming that its battery was smaller than the Leaf has. Both lease and purchase prices on i3 were very high (commensurate with Bring More Wallet) here in Arizona. I suspect BMW offers lower prices on the i3 in California because they need the CARB ZEV credits there. I like my BMW motorcycles, but the i3 was not suitable for my daily driver needs and it would have been difficult to justify the extra cost even if it had sufficient battery capacity.
