    I saw one downtown this evening.

    I was under the impression that the EL plates were for fully electric cars. Is this not the case or are there fully electric versions of the i3?

    The I3 comes in both BEV and Rex Electric. I am not sure if the Rex gets the EL plate but the BEV(Battery Electric Vehicle) version is absolutely eligible for the EL plate.

    Peace,

    I don't remember if they have published any stats about how many are sold with the gas engine versus without.
