Cristal White Finish, with White / Black Interior. The BMW i8 was a big step ahead for the hybrid vehicle segment that only BMW could bring to life, not only that, BMW created a hybrid that looks like it was taken right from the set of a futuristic film. Sports car performance made possible by an electric engine, and a tiny combustion engine is what summarized the BMW i8 when it was announced in 2010, without talking about the luxurious interior, and the characteristic swinging doors that made the BMW i8 an instant legend.
The power comes from the lithium-ion batteries with 7.1 kWh of energy, behind the rear seats, a 3-cylinder gas engine is prepared to deliver most of the power to this BMW. The engine might be tiny with only 1.5-liter displacement, but it’s turbocharged so it can produce 228 bhp by itself. The electric engine, produces 129 bhp channeling torque to the front wheels via a 2-speed gearbox. There are 3 different driving settings for this i8, full electric, hybrid, and Sport. With fully charged batteries, the full-electric mode can silently propel to a speed as high as 120 kmh. The 0-100 run in sports mode is performed in only 3.8 seconds in Sport Mode.
The BMW i8 experience starts with the grand-door opening spectacle, something different that is almost a combination between scissor and gullwing doors, then is the interior, a nice mixture of the traditional BMW interior, with some futuristic tweaks that makes this interior unique. Press the start button, and the electronic dash comes alive, now your car is ready for the driving mode which will keep only the electric engine working, or will start the combustion engine with a nice note from the 1.5-liter engine. The versatility of this vehicle is something to be recognized, going from a 100% regular electric for those short trips, to sports car performance for the highway drive on the weekends.
The Carbon Fiber chassis makes this BMW feel light and agile in any driving situation, the exterior is a combination of Crystal White, black and blue inserts all around the car. This is a vehicle that will grab the attention of everyone no matter where you go.
