Why did you choose this electric car?
I choose the i4 as most other cars on the market were SUVs and didn’t live up to expectations. When looking at the specs of the i4 versus cost it always came out top. The looks are brilliant, build quality second to none and the driving experience is out of this world. Would buy another if I didn’t have to wait 24 months for one.
