Edit: jdong has a perfect explanation there. I think you should read that first. If you are a gear head, you should understand it.
I am sorry you think you will have full electric + gas power ratings 100% time of ownership. You are a fool if you think that. They are selling the i8 as a sports car, meaning people will want to take in canyon carving (aka hard driving). The i8 is not intended for "eco drivers".
