Fellow Oppo Michael Parker let me go for a ride in his i3. Consider me an electric car convert. (I liked them already, but this sealed the deal)
My mind tells me that a tiny, silent car should not accelerate that hard. You get shoved back in your seat, but the only noise is wind and tires. Just cruising along silently is strange, but relaxing.
The car is very comfortable, too. Everything is right where it should be, ergonomically. The interior also looks like a spaceship, which is cool. Nice and roomy as well.
