I have an i3 that I bought in 2018. The range is pitiful. It only manages about 70 miles to the charge. I seriously have buyers remorse as newer cars on the market trump that by a few hundred.

The value has now gone down for this as the 2019 version boasts more than 150 miles.

Any thoughts? Does anyone know of a battery upgrade option?

Battery upgrades are super tricky. I don't think manufacturers will offer this service but DIY enthusiasts may help you but then you would be sacrificing the warranty.

If you really can't live with this, it might be wise to consider cutting your losses early so you still get a decent price.
