Everyone’s favorite journalist, Chris Harris, goes to Los Angeles to test drive the new BMW i8.

BMW i8 uses a plug-in hybrid system consisting of a turbocharged three-cylinder BMW TwinPower Turbo petrol engine and BMW eDrive technology in the form of an electric drive system.

In the rear of the BMW i8, the B38 three-cylinder engine makes 231 hp and delivers its power solely to the rear wheels. At the front, an electric motor is installed, which is powered by a lithium-ion battery in the middle of the vehicle. The system performance drives up to 362 horsepower.

Journalists are reporting 0 to 60 mph times of 3.8 seconds.

Let’s have a look.
