The i8 isn't meant to be for most people. It's probably going to be made in limited production.

The i3 isn't actually that ugly. As a matter of fact, I think it came out well compared to the i8's current unfortunate look from the previous concept. The i3 has ~250km range on a single charge, which is pretty decent if you ask me.

If i recall, the i3 will be quite affordable for those who need the car.

The only thing that really bothers me about all this is how much they fukd up on the i8. Even if they redesigned it to safety codes, they could have at least changed other things around to make it appear better. It just looks like they changed individual pieces to code and called it a day.

I always figured they would come with floating body panels and full glass doors.
