Joe, as I posted on your website, hybrids and PEVs are the future - if there's going to be any future.
I want to add that the Karma hits the sweet spot between a pure EV and a pure ICE. At the moment there are few (if any) hybrids that can compare.
By way of example, I was kicking tires at the BMW dealer a few weeks ago, and asked the salesman how the I3's motorcycle engine/generator (REx) in the trunk would perform climbing steep grades after the battery has been nearly depleted. He replied, "You might be able to maintain 50 mph." (Might is the operative word here.)
Fact check: According to the I3 Owner's Forum, at 2% SOC the max cruising speed on a level highway is 56 mph, but goes way down in cold weather and/or climbing hills. Some reported 25 mph or 0 when the car shut down.
