I didn't see anyone, it just got unloaded off a truck.
Surprised it wasn't a loaded Electronaut Edition though.

Are there really more than, say, three people that are THAT excited for the i3...

Ok, are suggesting we should rush there? :) I actually kind of like it, but it's hard for me to rationalize buying one.

The i3 is not even on my radar at the moment... I currently find the MB B Class EV much more intriguing and a better deal...

It won't surprise me if a bunch of people buy these from SF BWW at way over the MSRP like when they sold MINIs for $5K over all day long month after month. Even standard BMW pricing is like the "small plates" racket used at most restaurants and I expect to get what you want will be difficult. Regardless I can't get excited for a variety of reasons and the Mercedes seems too heavy being close to a RAV weight with a smaller pack.

I think that anyone who pays over MSRP for anything is daft!

With Range Mode, the MB numbers look pretty good - much better than the Leaf or i3... And it is a much more enjoyable car inside. Now if it only had QC...

I can't believe it doesn't have DCQC, same goes for the RAV4.
