A rare and somewhat odd review of the B250e. Concentrating on number of hours and fraction of time car is driven.

Quirky indeed. If one takes her 30mph and divides into 20K miles per year, that works out to "only" driving 28 days a year. Using that form of analysis, no car is driven enough to own. Ah what it must be like to live in eco conscious Europe. A different outlook on energy usage.

For me, it is convenience and a lifetime exemption from public transport after commuting on it for over 35 years. I traded speed and cost for comfort, quiet and convenience. Of course, I completely ignore traffic jams, limited street parking, pesty pedestrians, parking tickets, and the occasional flat tire.

Would I consider a nice on demand car, sure, I do use Uber and Via from time to time.

Maybe my view is biased because I own 3 cars, live in the city, and do most of the driving. Hm.
