I'm not surprised. The range of the I3 does not seem adequate for all purposes. Performance wise they do all right - nowhere near ludicrous mode, but zippy enough.
Whether their narrow tires are any good when there's a bit of unpaved road, or someones garden or whatever to cross remains to be seen. I doubt it.

A fat tired Model X in P100D trim would do all of that so much better. If Dubai is not outfitting its police department with those right now they are losing their step.
2011 Honda Insight + HID, LEDs, tiny PV panel, extra brake pad return springs, neutral wheel alignment, 44/42 PSI (air), PHEV light (inop), tightened wheel nut.
lifetime FE over 0.17 Gmeter or 0.1 Mmile.

Investors woes:
