Long Term Range Question

Hello -
I am curious to know what people with older i3's are seeing as far as range. I am thinking about getting into a CPO i3 pretty soon, and my commute is 55 miles roundtrip. I would prefer to save a few bucks and not get a REx unless I need to.

Anyone with a 2015 or 2016 have any thoughts on this?

Thanks!

15 BEV, my commute is roughly 40 miles round trip. 80% of the time I drive in ECO PRO. I'd say I see about 55 or so in range.

I had a '15 REx previously . 80 mile round trip commute in traffic in the morning and mixed traffic and highway speeds 65-80mph at night. I could make it home with the REx for the last 10 miles or so. That means I had a range of 70 miles of battery alone with those conditions. Your 55 should be fine for a BEV. The REx would be a nice security blanket though and they are around the same price used as the BEV. Honestly I think it's worth it.
