BMW i8 can be specified in a choice of four colors, three of which have been created exclusively for BMW i.
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. The 1.5-liter combustion engine develops 170 kW/231 hp and drives the rear wheels of the BMW i8, while the 96 kW/131 hp electric drive sends its power to the front wheels and allows an all-electric range of up to 35 kilometers (22 miles) and a top speed of 120 km/h (75 mph).
In Germany, the BMW i8 starts at €126,000, while in the UK it costs £ 99,125. The U.S. market received the i8 this summer with a base price of $135,700. But some reports indicate that premium prices are being paid for the i8 here.
