INNOVATION DISGUISED AS A SPORTS CAR. The BMW i8 is an icon of progress, marking an extraordinary evolution of The Ultimate Driving Machine.® As an innovative plug-in hybrid, it uses eDrive technology to combine the efficiency of an all-electric motor and the power of a TwinPower Turbo engine for an exhilarating driving experience that's every bit BMW. 4.2 0-60 MPH IN 4.2 SECONDS1 76 MPGe2 330 UP TO 330 MILES TOTAL RANGE3 STRIKING EXTERIOR. The long wheelbase, short overhangs, precise lines, and sweeping silhouette give the appearance that the BMW i8 is surging forward even when it is standing still. The scissor doors of the BMW i8 provide an undeniable emotional and sporty allure that make it truly one-of-a-kind. EFFICIENT DYNAMICS. From front to back, the BMW i8 is dedicated to reducing drag. The streamflow design of the vehicle's rear wing provides significant downforce all the way up to its top speed of 155 mph. EfficientDynamic technology allows vents to open and close to offer cooling, further reduce drag coefficient, and improve the vehicle's overall aerodynamics while the front Air Curtains channel airflow through the back vents to cool the TwinPower Turbo 3-cylinder engine. TURBOCHARGED PERFORMANCE. When a car looks this fast, it better live up to its appearance. The BMW i8 does exactly this with its innovative electric motor that sits on the front axle and the TwinPower Turbo 3-cylinder engine that drives the rear axle. When combined, they deliver a total output of 357 horsepower, 420 lb-ft of torque, and can reach 0 to 60 mph in 4.2 seconds. EXTRAORDINARY EFFICIENCY. As a plug-in hybrid with eDrive, the BMW i8 gets up to 76 MPGe fuel efficiency,2 far beyond conventional sports cars with comparable performance. And next to other plug-in hybrids, its dynamic sportiness is truly unmatched. THE MOST PROGRESSIVE SPORTS CAR EVER. Part of reinventing the sports car is rethinking its entire architecture. For BMW i, this led to the creation of the LifeDrive architecture, a revolutionary construction designed to deliver impeccable performance and superior dynamics, all while offering near-perfect 50:50 weight distribution. Plus, lightweight materials in the construction help make this plug-in hybrid vehicle as aerodynamic and sporty as possible. Its two-part structure uses aluminum and Carbon Fiber Reinforced Plastic (CFRP) for their rigidity and extreme lightness as opposed to steel. CHARGE FASTER. Two and a half hours. That's how long it takes the BMW i8 to fully charge.4 This charging technology can be found at one of 28,000+5 U.S. public charging facilities or from a Level 2 charging station installed at home. ENERGY, RESURRECTED. In the BMW i8, energy can be repurposed while driving to charge the battery from thrust, braking, or directly from the gas engine. It can also be recovered whenever you're hungry for an extra boost of power. FOUR DRIVING MODES. The Driving Experience Control switch on the center console offers various driving modes. The standard COMFORT mode offers a balance between sporty performance and fuel efficiency. SPORT mode features the ultra-intense boost function provided by the electric motor. ECO PRO mode supports a more efficient, optimized driving style that can be used in both all-electric mode and hybrid mode. Finally, eDRIVE mode is purely electric, offering a max range of up to 15 miles6 and a max speed of 75 mph for a totally tailpipe emission-free ride.
