An entirely new concept of sports car. More efficient – for example due to intelligent lightweight construction with carbon and aerodynamic design. More sustainable – with highly efficient BMW eDrive technology and recyclable materials in the interior. Without forfeiting dynamics and its sporting appearance. No compromises, but instead the optimum combination of driving pleasure and responsibility. The BMW i8 is a plug-in-hybrid that brings together the advantages of innovate electric motor and combustion engine technologies. The result is an extraordinary driving experience – with extremely low consumption and low emissions.

THE SPORTS CAR REDEFINED: THE BMW i8.

Progressive driving pleasure.

The BMW i8 is ready to revolutionise its vehicle class. As the first sports car with the consumption and emission values of a compact car. The strength of the plug-in hybrid lies, among other factors, in the perfect synchronisation of electric motor and combustion engine, which makes itself apparent in maximum efficiency and dynamics on the road. The first sports car that even accelerates the zeitgeist.

Design.

A sports car at first sight. Extremely low and wide when viewed from the front, a flat silhouette, powerfully shaped surfaces and precise contours. When viewed more closely, an ingenious new vehicle concept. With a design devoted to one function. Sustainability and efficiency meet dynamics and athleticism. On the road, the BMW i8 demonstrates the interplay of these ideals: hugging the ground and in the unrivalled form you expect of a BMW.

Drive.

The combination of an electric motor and a powerful petrol engine provides the foundation for one of the most innovative sports cars of our time – the BMW i8. The sporty character of the vehicle is evident at all times. Precise interplay between combustion engine and electric drive ensures efficiency and dynamism in equal measure.

Lithium-ion high-voltage battery.

The lithium-ion high-voltage battery joins the two sections of the Drive module and is thus ideally protected against outside influences. A specially developed heating and air conditioning system ensures as few temperature fluctuations as possible, which significantly increases the service life of the battery. The high-voltage battery of the BMW i8 carries a warranty for a period of 8 years or a distance of 100,000 km, whichever comes sooner.
