About the BMW i8

BMW i8

The BMW i8 is no ordinary sports car. It’s an icon of progress — an extraordinary evolution of The Ultimate Driving Machine®. As a revolutionary plug-in hybrid, this sports car uses eDrive technology to combine the efficiency of an all-electric motor and the power of a TwinPower Turbo engine for an exhilarating driving experience that’s every bit BMW.

At first glance, the BMW i8 comes across as a beautifully designed sports car. But it’s far more than that. Aerodynamics plays a key role in the design of the BMW i8, with each detail working toward channeling airflow for greater efficiency. Additionally, the streamflow design of the vehicle’s rear wing helps provide significant downforce all the way up to the electronically-limited top speed of 155 mph.

The long wheelbase, short overhangs, precise lines, and sweeping silhouette give the appearance that the BMW i8 is surging forward even when it is standing still. The scissor doors of the BMW i8 provide an undeniable emotional and sporty allure that make it truly one-of-a-kind.

When a car looks this fast, it better live up to its appearance. The BMW i8 does just that, with help from its powerful, yet efficient TwinPower Turbo 3-cylinder combustion engine and its innovative electric motor. Together, these two engines work in tandem for uninterrupted acceleration from a standstill with a total system output of 420 lb-ft of torque and 357 horsepower.

As a plug-in hybrid, the BMW i8 combines an electric motor with a combustion engine with for unparalleled power and performance. Launching from 0 to 60 mph in 4.2 seconds, this vehicle is as efficient as it is dynamic. The all-electric motor is situated on the front axle, while the TwinPower Turbo 3-cylinder engine drives the rear axle. When combined, these two elements deliver an innovative all-wheel drive sports car with a total system output of 357 horsepower, 420 lb-ft of torque as well as an added electrical boost inherent to eDrive vehicles.
