i doubt BMW has thought of this design flaw.... i cant believe they made a scam car with false technical specs.... cmon guys keep in mind it will have extensive CF and light tech so even on 3-cyl without the electric engine it is going to be fast. And using the 20 mi electric engine is only for 'show off green mode' every once in a while, most of the time you will use the hybrid mode which wont burn the battery as fast as 20 miles, prob get around 80-120 miles range
