According to west coast bmw i3 not going to be sold in Perth
Only Melbourne and Sydney at this staged allegedly due to infrastructure.

Will be interesting to see what happens next year.

There is the m1 inline 6 going for $94k driveaway
Fully specced up
Wide screen sat nav
Moon roof
Bixenon headlights

Now I don't think that 67k is too much for the volt

Approx 650cc engine seems to be the optimal size for this sized car
Eg iCar also has 660cc engine

That's surprising, as it seems to me like you guys have all the EV infrastructure over there!

More expensive than a volt.
Reminds me of original price for imiev.

But think about the carbon fibre.
