It's the 51/49 number I was looking for. Do you have a source for this, as I couldn't find it anywhere.
This came about because of a reply to my post on a bmw i3 forum. I posted the Motor Trend Car of the Year award to e-Golf and other similar awards and said the e-Golf was a strong competitor to the i3. The replies pretty much dissed the e-golf, one of the arguments being lower weight, 50/50 weight distribution and RWD was what real men wanted and thus the e-Golf was a non-competitor
I responded that part of the weight was the e-Golf was a bigger car by 10", is $10,000 MSRP less expensive due to being fully loaded, has two full rear doors, is 5 passenger since it is FWD and doesn't need the hump, and reviews said it handled well due to almost equal weight distribution
I found the weight distribution for the i3 and it's not 50/50 but 47/53 front/rear in the BEV and 44/56 in the REX. I also found that front-wheel drive is better for most vehicles. The exception is in high performance race cars, where rear wheel drive is better. Even many "sports cars" are front wheel drive. http://askville.amazon.com/Front-wheel-drive-Rear-Wheel-key-differences-benefits/AnswerViewer.do?requestId=3870339
I have NOT found the 51/49 or whatever it is for the e-Golf anywhere on the internet. Hence my question if anyone knows.
Regardless of what it is, I'm getting an e-Golf as soon as I can find one in Urano metallic or Limestone metallic Of the 117 for sale in the US, only one is gray and it's not in my area.
