    You got an essential fact wrong several times. The supplied charger is Level 1, and a tightly throttled Level 1 at that. Level 2 (16A 240V) will recharge the car in less than six hours, but you almost never need that, if you plug the car in after most trips. Any EV is rather impractical if you use only an 8 amp 120V charge rate. For realistic tests, get a portable Level 2 charger and plug it into 240V service. I've put 20,000 miles on my i inside of 16 months, and it doesn't even have the Level 3 quick charge option. Very few of you mentioned how the car leaps ahead of red-light traffic every time, turns on a dime, and can jump into the tightest of merging opportunities. That matters much more than 0-60 times in real daily driving.
