[ CHECK IT OUT: 2015 BMW I8 ]
Performance Specs & Premium Features
Powered by a combination of a 1.4L turbocharged I3 engine and a hybrid synchronous electric motor, the I8 is capable of generating a combined 357 horsepower. In the talk of exotic sports cars today, 357 HP might not sound like a lot of power… but remember, this is a plug-in hybrid! That’s quite impressive, and it’s enough power to enable the BMW I8 to hit 60 miles per hour in just 3.7 seconds. Astounding!
Its powertrain setup enables the vehicle to have an overall range of 530 miles with a combined fuel efficiency equivalent of 76 MPGe. When driving with gasoline only, it achieves 28 mpg in the city and 29 mpg on the highway. Technically, it has an all-electric range of 15 miles, though it consumed 0.1 gallons of fuel per 100 miles when operating like this, so the EPA lists its all-electric range as 0.
However, the I8 isn’t just range, efficiency and power. It’s packed with premium features that will make sure you enjoy every time you hit the road, whether it’s for an all-electric jaunt to the grocery store and back or a full-on trip two towns over. This includes features like the two front LCD monitors, the 11-speaker audio system, the front bucket racing seats that have a heating function for chillier climates and so much more.
