Thought of the Day: EREV Range (Nikki, March 17, 2014)

Nikki responds to Mark’s thoughts from Friday on EU Charging complications, and talks about representing plug-in hybrid and EREV range.

Unlike our other shows, Thought of the Day is our chance to muse on one big story in the news each day, using it as a spring board to explore other topics, sometimes even outside of the Transport Evolved universe. Every weekday, Nikki and Mark will take it in turns to explore a story that catches our eye, developing a back and forth conversation between Transport Evolved’s two regular hosts.

As with our Quick Charge series, our Thought of the Day will be recorded very simply on a single smartphone, but then quickly edited together using the jump cut edit style popular with many YouTube vlogs. We think this style complements our other shows and offers us a different way to share our thoughts with you, our readers and viewers.

    It took a little while before someone said the obvious that they could undertake their i3 journey with a spare can of fuel in the boot but I saw a comment the other day and that prompted me to search ebay specifically for a BMW fuel can. No luck. Lots of jerry cans but no definitive BMW can.nnBut there is nothing stopping BMW offering a can in the accessory list for an i3 and then claiming an even greater range. Itu2019s just a matter of how you word it.nnAs someone who would love to own an i3 to go with my lovely blue Leaf, I would want to know how much range I would be sacrificing by constantly lugging around the rex., and therefore part of assessing necessity or not of same to suit my needs.nnAs to which plug and socket will win-out, I donu2019t know but the robust nature of the Chademo set-up is very reassuring to use and as you say it is the leading contender.
