Planning to buy I8 2015-16


Recommended Posts

Yes there are quite a few and some are quoting very high prices as well. 

A few things to keep in mind,

1. Battery - These are plug in hybrids (and not electric) you need to charge the car to get best efficiency and best performance out of the car. A home 15Amp power socket is sufficient, charging time will be close to 8 hours. The batteries can fail, doesnt mean you have to replace the whole battery pack. Sometimes you can get away with replacing temperature sensor. However if a cell goes below the 60% usability the company will recommend you to replace the relevant cell or cells.

2. As a sports car it has very low ground clearance so you will need to take care on certain bumps and sudden climbs.

3. Practicality - Lets face it it is a lovely design, but try getting in and out wont be the most graceful embarking and disembarking that you will do in your life. Old people will curse you and the fairer sex with short skirts, and sarees will be red faced and struggle.

4. Mileage clocking - most of the cars will have the meters turned to mph from kmph or in the worse case scenario manipulated to show low numbers.

I would suggest you get the car checked through the company or a reputable place that vehicle inspections.
