They spent too much time, resources, r&d, and money on the i-program to only be used only for boosting their fleet fuel economy. That is not BMW's intentions with this car or other i-cars.

Who cares? You are not doing burnouts and powerslides in this golf cart. Honestly pointless for $20k extra.

To be honest screw a range extender, just buy a Prius and f*ck worrying about range in the first place.
