If you were to own the BMW i8 plug-in hybrid, which operating mode would you choose to use most often?
For us, it would be SPORT mode all the time.
Choosing the BMW i8 over say a Toyota Prius Plug-In Hybrid or Ford Fusion Energi proves that performance is a top priority to the buyer. So, if you bought it for performance,then you might as well use all of it, right?
Let's not kid ourselves. The BMW i8 is a high performance machine that just so happens to plug in. It's electric-only range is minimal (22 miles per BMW, a wildly optimistic figure). It's not designed to get you from Point A to Point B under electric power alone.
Use it as its intended. SPORT mode for the win. Agreed?
