It doesn’t solve the problem of whether to buy an EV now (and if so, which) or to wait.
And if you wait will something even more sexy (or at least with longer range and quicker charging times) be “just a year or two down the line”
It’s still something of a pioneer’s game and Tesla is not the only manufacturer with problems. Even if bits don’t fall off so willingly from ID.3’s they were beset with software problems.
BMW has been playing it a bit more cautiously - whether that is a good thing or a bad thing remains to be seen.
I’ve plenty of time to makeup my mind, even if I were set on the i4 the earliest I’m likely to see one is March-June next year. I could reserve one which might make it closer to March but would I then discover there hadn’t been much demand and BMW quickly start offering big incentives - the 745e presumably is not selling in expected numbers as there is a whopping £21,799 deposit contribution from BMW if you order one (OK that’s a PHEV rather than a pure EV but even so nearly £22k off the asking price smacks of desperation).
