Meet the BMW i8 – the most progressive sports car

Every great seminal achievement has a story.

In the case of the BMW i8 this story begins in 2008 and the launch of the project and whose main goal was to re-design of urban mobility. Just a year later BMW Vision EfficientDynamics concept demonstrated how it can look like a technology leader aimed at saving energy. It was the foundation that enabled the development of the BMW i8 Concept, which is in its production form almost showed the direction of development. All available technology BMW EfficientDynamics were already united in this vehicle, implemented the concept of using lightweight materials and the idea of ​​a sports car of the future slowly loomed.

Series production of the BMW i8 indicates the current peak of development that has resulted in a plug-in hybrid that looks and high performance is like a sports car, while also boasts fuel consumption and emissions to the level compacts. In addition, the BMW i8 conclusively resolves the apparent contradiction between efficiency and driving dynamics.

 

A new concept

The all-new concept sports car – more efficient because, for example, intelligent lightweight construction of carbon fiber and aerodynamic design and sustainable due to extremely efficient technologies BMW eDrive and the use of recycled materials in the interior. And this amazing BMW has all that without sacrificing driving dynamics and the sport style. It’s uncompromising with the optimal combination of driving pleasure and responsibility. BMW i8 is a plug-in hybrid that combines the advantages of the innovative technology of electric motors and internal combustion engines. The result is extremely driving experience with very low fuel consumption and emissions.

 

Progressive driving pleasure

BMW i8 is ready to revolutionize its class as the first sports car consumption and emissions at the level compact car. Power plug-in hybrid is based, among other things, in perfect conformity of the electric motor and an internal combustion engine which is most evident in maximum efficiency and driving dynamics on the road. BMW i8 is the first sports car that accelerates and the very spirit of the time.

Design

It’s sport car at first glance. Extremely lowered and wide looking at him from the front, a flat contour, strongly shaped surfaces and precise contours. And watching him closely, you will see that this is a brilliant new concept vehicle. On the road BMW i8 shows the interaction of these ideals firmly grasping surface and speeding down the road the way you would expect from BMW.

Drive

Compound motors and powerful petrol engine forms the basis of the BMW i8, one of the most innovative sports cars of our time. The sports vehicles are obvious all the time. The precise interaction between the internal combustion engine and electric drive guarantees the same level of efficiency and driving dynamics.

LED light with laser technology

Optional long headlights with laser technology increase the range of beam and improve their lighting with only a fraction of the energy consumption compared with standard headlights.
