The BMW i8 Coupe, and first-ever BMW i8 roadster, are icons of progress. These innovative plug-in hybrid vehicles represent the future of electric mobility – while capturing the classic emotions of freedom and exhilaration you expect from a BMW.
BMW i8 models draw their revolutionary power from the electric motor under the hood. A TwinPower Turbo gas engine positioned over the rear axle adds additional horsepower while beautifully balancing both Coupe and Roadster with near-perfect 50-50 weight distribution. Aerodynamic excellence is enhanced by lightweight Carbon Fiber Reinforced Plastic construction – a revolutionary and sustainable material that’s just as strong as steel.
With the electric motor and combustion engine providing a total output of 369hp and 420 lb-ft of torque, the i8 Coupe and i8 Roadster more than live up to the sporting heritage of BMW – blowing through 0-60mph in as little as 4.2 seconds.
