In response to the post-20mile charge thing, I would imagine that you would be able to run in dual-mode once you exhaust the electric-only source. That only makes sense for practicality of the car.
Problem it is only sports car fast for ~20 miles. The power ratings they are touting are combined ratings. So once you exhaust the electric range, which has been said to be 20 miles. You are left with a $100,000+ sports car running a slow as piss 3-cylinder engine. The i8 needs a bigger gas engine to be called a sports car.
