The BMW i8 is an entirely new concept of sports car. It is more efficient due to intelligent lightweight construction with carbon and aerodynamic design. More sustainable, with highly efficient BMW eDrive technology and recyclable materials in the interior. It doesn't forfeit dynamics and its sporting appearance though. It makes no compromises, but instead delivers the optimum combination of driving pleasure and responsibility. The BMW i8 is a plug-in-hybrid that brings together the advantages of innovate electric motor and combustion engine technologies. The result is an extraordinary driving experience, with extremely low consumption and low emissions.

THE SPORTS CAR REDEFINED: THE BMW i8.

Progressive driving pleasure.

The BMW i8 is ready to revolutionise its vehicle class as the first sports car with the consumption and emission values of a compact car. The strength of the plug-in hybrid lies in the perfect synchronisation of electric motor and combustion engine, that's brought to the street with the highest efficiency and dynamics. It is no longer a vision, but charged intelligence. The first sports car that even accelerates the zeitgeist.

Design.

Through its overall concept, the BMW i8 embodies the accomplished vision of a modern and sustainable sports car. The highly emotive design instantly shows which qualities the BMW i8 has to offer. Yet is doesn’t rely entirely on its sports car character. Its aesthetics also pursue functional aims such as more aerodynamics for maximum efficiency.

Drive.

The BMW i8 offers far more than pure athleticism. With its unique drive concept, it essentially reinvents the idea of sporting mobility. This is because the powerful plug-in hybrid system with the combination of BMW eDrive technology and a BMW TwinPower Turbo 1.5-litre, 3-cylinder petrol engine brings together the benefits of an electric motor and a petrol engine to produce an outstanding driving experience.
