Frankly 30k for this is mental, a toy for the filthy rich to make them feel like they are doing their bit towards the planet. Now if BMW put the technology of their i8 into a saloon instead of a sportscar then I will sit up and listen because without the ability to charge on the move the uses for electric cars are very limited to the majority.
not as mental as the MSRP on any S model Audi...and the pure stupidity of the RS price tags.
