Vaporised rain hangs like fog over the autobahn to Munich, making it nigh impossible to distinguish horizon from heavens.
Bugatti Chiron, the world's fastest and most expensive car, unveiled at Geneva motor show. The Model 3 won’t start initial deliveries until about ~15 months from now (even the production-intent prototype has yet to be shown), while the i3 has been available since 2014, as both an electric-only and as REx.
In the end, the Model 3 outmatched the i3 on most fronts, however, the car is of course not yet available and many specific details are yet to be revealed. Add to this that no one really knows what the Model 3 interior will look like in the finished product. The other was designed to be the ultimate Efficient, sustainable EV, built for city, suburb and country road driving. The i3 has the possibility of you buying 2 for your household, and a roof of solar, and being completely independent of outside infrastructure. The i3 falls more into the Bolt EV class, as far as vehicle form factor, but really is not a good EV nor a good PHEV.
So i3 was an experiment, and looks pretty much like an experiment with it’s odd design. And, James: As compared to other plug-in EVs sold in North America, the i3 is indeed highly energy efficient. Considering how much energy it takes to make all of that more or less useless CFRP, I would be astonished if the i3 is more energy efficient than the steel and aluminium Model 3 on a life cycle basis. Consider this then, at least 75% of the energy needed to to build the i3 comes from renewable energy. Yes, the i3 is very efficient to drive and it’s was part of the thinking process to build it efficiently.
The dam from which the CF manufacturer in Moses Lake buys its energy existed before the CF plant was built. The net effect, therefore, of the CF production is the impact of the additional generation that had to be added (or the energy that had to be imported). It is true that the i3 assembly plant is powered (I think entirely) by renewables that BMW installed. The i3 with narrow tires, carbon fibre, plastic bumbers, renewable raw materials in the interior is revolutionary (Model 3 will sure use cheap plastic made of oil, lol).
No, I don’t drive an i3 and also like Tesla more than BMW but if you look in detail on the product, the i3 is from the future and the Model 3 is just a normal sedan. If you live in countries with good infrastructure like UK, Sitzerland or France it makes no differences with Supercharging or not. So except the SC network in some regions, there is nothing revolutionery on the car itself. Even the oldest, non-upgraded SuperChargers can charge the Tesla MOdel S at an optimal rate of about 150 miles in 30 minutes. If you want to convince us that whatever they’re using for public charging in France or Switzerland, presumably either CSS or ChaDEmo chargers, then tell us how many miles per minute those chargers can add to what kind of PEV. The most revolutionary aspect of Model 3 is that it will be the first fully electric car that is so compelling demand will be in the 100s of thousands not 10s of thousands. On the west coast and in the northeast, there is far more ChaDeMo and CCS density than superchargers.
The others have typically 1 or 2 charging stations at each location that don’t work a significant portion of the time. That may be true about the concentration of chargers an more dense areas however model 3 will likely be able to use all of those charging standards as well as the superchargers. I would think an electric motor on the rear wheels would make way more sense than a traditional linkage… Pretty much any AWD hybrid uses electric motors on the rear wheels. Current i3 won’t compete very well with the future M3, but the future i3 might do a decent job. I don’t think all hope is lost for the i3, I think they bay be able to make a competitive vehicle that some buyers will still find fits their own personal needs and desires. Here’s hoping that BMW upgrades the PHEV version of the i3 to break out of the straightjacket of the ridiculous BEVx category created by CARB.
Between now and 2020, I don’t see a rollout in any significant numbers of any EV charger capable of charging as fast, or faster, than even the oldest, most basic Supercharger.


Most EV chargers other than Tesla SuperChargers are placed in urban areas, and are meant to support local travel, rather than long-range travel.
Supercharging access with be an extra cost option for the Model 3 according to Elon, so why does IEV say it might be free? SMH; yet another article pitting two separate classes of vehicles just because they are EV.
For either car, if the driver has their own home, so they have somewhere they can easily plug it in each night when they get home, then ….
The BMW i3 is going to be leased as a 2nd or 3rd car for the family, for someone to do the daily commute to the city, which probably becomes a fun car to drive, and then becomes the 1st car, and the petrol car becomes the spare, saved for the occasional long journey. Microchipping a dog is the process of implanting a chip under the dogs skin and registering the keepers details on a national database so that the dogs keeper can be traced.From the 6th April 2016 onwards it will be mandatory that all dogs be microchipped before they are 8 weeks old. All dogs should be vaccinated and have their vaccinations kept up-to-date, this is part of being a responsible dog owner and will be your responsibility.Puppies should receive 2 vaccinations, the first at around 8 to 10 weeks of age and the second, two weeks later at around 10 to 12 weeks of age. Bernese Mountain Dog bitch for sale Kennel Club registered and full pedigree vaccinated up to date and fully wormed and microchipped. Do your research firstGetting a new dog or puppy is a massive commitment, so make sure you have researched the breed fully and have the time and commitment necessary to care for the dog.
Confirm that the advertiser is genuineYou should verify this by arranging to visit the dog or puppy at the advertisers home, if they make excuses or try to ask for money or a deposit without seeing the dog, or if the advertiser attempts to deliver the puppies or meet you at any other location than their own home, then please do not agree to this. Can the puppies be viewed with their Mother?The advertiser should ALWAYS let you see the puppies with their mother, and in certain circumstances should let you see the puppies father.
Is the Puppy over 8 Weeks of age?Puppies must be at least 8 weeks old and fully weaned before they can leave their mothers.
Check the Health of the Puppy or DogIt can be difficult for the average person to check if a dog or puppy is healthy or not, so if you decide to adopt or buy the puppy, make sure that the seller agrees that you can return them within 48 hours for a full refund after taking the dog or puppy to a Vet of your choice for a health check.

Ask questions about puppies motherAsk how many litters the mother has had and how old she is, she should be at least 1.5 years old. Have the puppies been socialised ?Make sure that puppies have been socialised from a very early age and are raised in a home environment, have interacted with their litter mates and are used to people, children and general household life. Bernie Ecclestone's wife, Fabiana Flosi, has reasons to rejoice, as her abducted mother was recently freed from her kidnappers by a special task force of the Brazilian police. Ecclestone himself has reasons to be happy as well since despite a 120 million reais (approximately $36,5 million) ransom was requested, no money was actually paid. Aparecide Schunck, the 67-year-old mother-in-law of the Formula 1 supremo, had been kidnapped on July 22 from her home in the neighborhood of Interlagos in Sao Paulo, but her ordeal thankfully ended without anyone getting hurt in the late ours of yesterday. According to Brazilian news outlet Veja, phone calls held between the kidnappers and members of Mrs.
Last night, a special police task forced stormed the hideout, which was located in Cotia, in the Metropolitan Region of Sao Paulo and freed the woman. Apparently, Ecclestone had wanted to come to Brazil to help in the investigation, but the police suggested that he and his wife should remain in the United Kingdom, as their presence might have the opposite of the desired effect.
As most of you know, Bernie Ecclestone is one of the most powerful men in motorsport and most likely the richest, with a personal net worth of about $3.1 billion, according to Forbes. We motor through a monochrome curtain as velocity and tyre spray erase any colour on a wet, dreary autumn day.Only at the shortest distance do we detect the red glow of the tail-lights ahead - every car on this stretch has its lights on. News and World Report published a direct review comparing the upcoming Tesla Model 3 with the BMW i3 (who needs an actual production car to get the job done right?). People try to use the word to mean too many different things, so the meaning of what they’re tying to say is often muddled. After I drove the i3 (along with the surly BMW co-pilot I had!), I did not want to purchase it. The test makes clear in what fields and how much they have to up their game before the end of 2018 to be able to compete.
If they don’t start seriously moving, Tesla will become very large and some of them will become irrelevant.
Just what kind of pretzel logic do you have to do, what kind of cherry-picking of facts, to be able to claim that SuperChargers don’t charge faster?
If you add in a traditional mechanical linkage, you’re going to sap power via the added friction and weight.


That’s only 4 years away, and no organization is talking about building anything even remotely close to the planned-in-advance, nationwide (or continent-wide) network that Tesla has built in North America, and is building in Western Europe and a select number of other places. Excellent temperament and nature, reared with children and other pets good in the car and on the lead. Not being able to see the puppies mother is a sign the puppies have not been bred by the advertiser and possibly imported. Schunck's family were monitored by police, helping the lawmen find out their location. Two kidnappers were arrested on the spot, but the Sao Paulo police think that more people could be involved, and the investigation is still ongoing. Schunck became his mother-in-law when Bernie married her daughter, Fabiana Flosi, in 2012, not even three years after meeting her working at the 2009 Brazilian Grand Prix. A report speculates that it will be priced at 1 million yuan (around USD 150,000), which is more than double the price of the car in the U.S.
However, the current federal tax credit is $7,500 and many Model 3 buyers may not be able to get it. This service is free for Tesla owners and may remain so for the Model 3 (certain trims anyway). Yeah, it was *significantly* faster than my i-MiEV, it wasn’t better in cargo space, people space, or visibility.
If they start competing, they will survive, maybe even flourish and Tesla will stay a small of at most normal sized company.
The Model 3 will in FACT be able to utilize the supercharger network though, something the others won’t be able to do. It’s really the same revolutionary thing that they have in common with the Model 3 – Lots of takers! If you want more power, you’re going to use a bigger electric motor or engine or both.
Or will it be consigned to the dustbin of history, like so many other car models that failed to compete? The top tier may be what the Model S gets; unlimited use after paying a lifetime access fee*. All is well when it ends well, especially since the abduction was resolved just days before the Rio 2016 Olympics are to be held in Brazil. The high price tag is attributed to the heavy import taxes levied by the government.The exterior is nearly identical to the Lincoln Continental Concept, featuring LED lights, chrome surround on the upper grille and a chrome accents on the bumper. The Model 3 can also be charged at Tesla’s destination charging stations, as well as anywhere else any EV can be charged.
Look what the Model S60 is charging in half an hour and the Model 3 will have less battery, charge even slower. The side profile is also similar to the concept, save for the oddly-positioned door handles. The LED headlamps are a welcome addition (or would be if they could illuminate anything beyond a fog-like wall of water droplets) but the rest of the exterior changes amount to blink-and-miss-it minutiae.It is a recurring theme inside. Infact , take off the front and rear subframes and what you get is a car built almost entirely of carbon fiber. Outside of the home, BMW must rely on minimal access of slower, public chargers. In certain areas i3 buyers can get 2 years of free public fast charging. My sister has a Tesla S and the quality and design is better by far than every GM I’ve owned. The extra grunt complements one of the sharpest handling and most comfortable chassis in the baby SUV class. The good news however is that there is no heavy battery set , weighing down the car, and the carbon fiber is entirely used to compliment the engine and performance. Expect prices well above that of the 2005 model, which initially reached dealerships for a base price tag of $140,000.Is the 2016 Ford GT worth the high price tag ?
