BMW i3 Victim of Price Gouging as Dealers Cash in on Demand

Back in late 2010 and early 2011, when the all-electric Nissan LEAF and range-extended Chevrolet Volt debuted in the U.S., we were inundated with stories of dealer price-gouging. In some cases, dealers were adding upwards of ten or twenty thousand dollars on the price of new plug-in cars.

Are BMW dealers price-gouging the i3?
Since then, price-gouging — selling cars well above MSRP in order to cash in on high demand and low availability — has been mercifully absent for the most part. But now it appears price gouging is back, this time with the BMW i3.
Hiked prices
We were first alerted to the problem by BMW ActiveE Electronaut Jack Spratt, who made a post on Facebook over the weekend complaining that his local BMW dealer was adding extras to its BMW i3 that customers didn’t want — then hiking the sticker price.
