Precise lines and sweeping silhouettes. Scissor doors and streamflow design. The BMW i8 perfectly captures the emotion of motion.
Dual wind channels, framed by the iconic U-shaped BMW i taillight design, guide air around the i8 Coupe and i8 Roadster. The distinctive streamflow design - incorporating the hood vent, air curtains, sealed underbody, and sculpted rear - aligns aerodynamics with style.
Scissor doors are designed for more than a dramatic entrance. Cleverly constructed of aluminum and carbon fiber, these sportscar signatures keep vehicle weight down while still looking incredible.
Efficient, comfortable, and sporty: the BMW i8 models are wonders of interior design. Heated front seats, upholstered with leather and environmentally conscious materials, perfectly complement the standard Carbon Fiber Interior Trim.
Everything a driver desires is within your reach. Ergonomically oriented tactile controls, plus a standard 8.8" touchscreen display and the intuitive BMW iDrive system, place you in complete control of your high-performance plug-in hybrid.
The BMW i8 is purpose-built to harness incredible hybrid power - and crafted to deliver a drive like nothing else.
BMW i8 models draw their revolutionary power from a 141 hp synchronous electric motor located in the front of the vehicle, under the hood.
A 1.5-liter TwinPower Turbo engine, positioned over the rear axle, works together with the motor for a combined output of 369 hp.
The placement of motor, engine, and lithium-ion batteries in the center tunnel give the i8 models a lower center of gravity - and near-perfect 50/50 weight distribution.
From a sustainable production process to efficient electric charging, the BMW i8 models are cutting-edge high-performance vehicles.
