The Truth About Cars (or TTAC if you will) are not known for holding their tongue when it comes to anything automotive that doesn't ring true to themselves, so it was with heightened interest we saw the online magazine had done a review on BMW's most "love it or hate it" plug-in offering - the i3 REx.

Which way would review Alex Dykes take us, and the i3?  Will the plug-in BMW be the worst offering the Bavarian company has unleashed on humanity this decade, or one of the better ones?

Surely in TTAC-style there could be no in between right?  Wrong.  Overall the review is quite comprehensive and balanced - even when testing the infamous "battery exhaustion going up a hill" chestnut we have all been subjected to quite often.
