My raptor gets about 21MPG at 65 on highways and 17MPG at the same for regular daily. This is the Gen 2 not hideous Gen 1.

I find that covers me for getting >=2% on almost everything I buy these days.
Got it Applecard and Discover, what is American express doing now days?

Nice job

...the more time I spend in my commute the more I'd want to spend it in a car I actually enjoy driving. If I had a 2 mile commute I could deal with an electric car a lot easier.

I would think that any real driver would prefer the feel and performance of the i3 in all real world driving conditions over a Raptor. It's light, nimble, handles really well in corners, accelerates nicely, comfortable, has some feedback to the driver, etc. vs. a softened truck (mind you there is always a place for a truck, just perhaps not for highway/back-road commuting).

The raptor only a little over double the weight of the BEV i3

The i3s looks are certainly its weakest aspect. Happily, Im pretty close to whatever the opposite of vain is.

If you think its underpowered, I think youve never driven one.

The lack of power I suspect would go unnoticed as the instant torque from the electric motors combined with the lack of weight really make the car feel zippy. I suspect you would win more street drag races in the i3 than in the Raptor

No argument on the look.
