Does it make sense to get AWD in an electric car, barring budget concerns, then?
Tesla is already doing this. I think it's reasonable to assume that higher trim Model 3s have AWD options.
I'd like to consider Camry but that thig is like Jake from State farm: hideous.
I just really like Coupes. It's simply impossible to compare a Coupe and a Sedan's look. Coupes will always win hands down. For that reason, I looked away from Toyota. The only Coupe Toyota has is 86(which was actually Scion FR-S), but that's a Miata car, with an I4, RWD, smaller size and limited practical uses, so it's not comparable to Accord or even Civic Coupes with their FWD setups and more practical designs.
Same reason I am not very hyped about Teslas. The only design I really enjoy is their Roadster, but there is only 1000 of those in the entire world, so... Wish they bring it back or do something similar to it in the future for the rich blokes out there who love supercars. Wish they can make a Coupe body styled electric car. Until then, I will continue to see Teslas as luxury commute cars, rather than actual performance cars.
Always wondered why hybrids don't have a fwd IC engine plus battery powered rear wheels.
Just making an educated guess here, but I will bet that's due to the different torque and power output characteristics of an ICE and an electric motor.
BMW i8 kinda does the opposite of that.
I have seen some rich bloke driving that in my uni. Those cars are pretty expensive, man. While I like Coupes, supercars are just too impractical. Too expensive to maintain, gets too much unnecessary attention, and you can't really unleash their full power in most driving conditions anyways. Also, I still end up carrying more than 2 people sometimes, so I still prefer a Coupe with back seats.
I'd love to see is how the i8 does against R8. Both are German cars and are in similar price range.
