I can do a miniature version of this with the ActiveHybrid 3. Just yesterday, I had to make a quick trip one street over, and did the whole thing on battery power. Obviously 2-20miles would be much much nicer, something one could accomplish with the i3/i8.

I'm obviously being sarcastic but it really does seem like every car, even the M3 is tested in cold conditions only.
They test all the cars in extreme heat: http://www.autoguide.com/auto-news/2...-up-close.html
