Even with its standard fitted full-LED headlamps, BMW i8 is an absolute eye-catcher that clearly differs not only from all other BMW models but also from other cars on the road. Just as unique as the design is also the drivetrain of the BMW i8, based on a small conventional engine and two electric motors.
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 will cost £ 99,125. The U.S. market sells the BMW i8 in 2014 at a base price of $135,700.
