2017 BMW i3 94 Ah RWD with Range Extender Review
says:
The exterior styling is polarizing, and you dont miss this car when you see it. It grabs your attention The acceleration is shockingly good. The EV range is great and you can get the gasoline backup for more distance. Handling is crisp and responsive, and the road feel is fairly good too. The tech in the car is super, and I find the Active Cruise Control to be a great feature. Overall the interior is modern (even IKEA like) and it has more space than youd expect from the small wheelbase.

Front Seats Ranked 2017 Chevrolet Volt Premier better.
"The drivers seat in the Volt has better padding, and hugs the driver more than the i3. The BMW is made to be a city-car, so the more bench like approach makes sense, but is a little less comfortable."
Back Seats Ranked 2017 Chevrolet Volt Premier worse.
"Volt has low headroom in the back seat. i3 is much taller and has loads of headroom in the front and back.Volt really cant carry 5 adults, the backseat space isnt there."

Power Ranked 2017 Chevrolet Bolt EV better.
"Actually very difficult to dicern, but the Bolt felt more controlled in its power delivery."
Value Ranked 2017 Chevrolet Bolt EV better.
"Not as wierd looking as the BMW and had a full suite of sound options. The i3 does not even offer FM radio, not sure why that was omitted."
