Was planning on leasing a M3, then getting an e-mini

    Ummmm, it's a concept car. They all look a little ridiculous. It mostly looks like a regular Mini.

    You are right about the too big Model 3. Wait for something smaller and better, but hopefully not as ugly as your Cooper.

    I'm waiting for the day when auto manufactures no longer feel the need to plaster "e"s all over their EVs

    You won't be alive in 20019 or 20020, so I wouldn't worry about it.

    The supercharger network is the must-have accessory for any electric car.
    The Mini looks good, the new Leaf will be great, even the Bolt is OK, but without an easy, reliable, ubiquitous charging network it's all too much hassle.

    it would be really great if leasing was an option for the Model 3...

    I also currently own a Mini, which will be replaced by the Model 3. It will be interesting to see if BMW can get competitive EV range with the new Mini E. If they just transplant the i3 battery, then probably not. Then there is the fast charging network problem...

    Maybe we will achieve singularity?

    This is just due to it being a concept. Concept cars need weird colors and quirks to stand out in a crowd of new cars. So car show concepts are usually a bit over the top. This will be toned down once it makes it into production.

    i8 as a production vehicle.

    The electric Mini will probably look a lot more like any other Mini.

    Fitting though that those are ZIP codes for Washington D.C.
