Drive Greener, Faster with the Ground-Breaking BMW i8 Plug-In Sports Car
The impeccable BMW design has a way of revolutionizing an entire vehicle class. The BMW i8 is a vessel for innovation, taking classic sports car proportions and engagement and delivering them in a revolutionary new way -- via a plug-in hybrid powertrain. It's the exhilarating BMW driving experience you know and love, but it's a refreshing and invigorating design that changes your perception of what being a "sports car" really means.
BMW i8 Performance
BMW i8 Exterior Design
- The BMW i8 certainly looks like a sports car, but it's much more than just a straight-laced athlete. It's not just about a racy style with this vehicle; every exterior detail is thoughtfully designed to improve aerodynamics.
- But, of course, it still makes it looks good while doing it, too. Scissor doors ensure the BMW i8 looks unlike any sport car on the road. And its long wheelbase, sleek profile, and short overhands gives the illusion that the BMW i8 is always moving.
- Reducing drag is key to the BMW i8's sporty performance. It employs EfficientDynamic ventilation technologies, which include vents that actively open and close to improve the vehicle's overall aerodynamics.
- Channeling airflow is crucial to efficiency, and the vehicle's rear wing helps provide significant downforce, which the front Air Curtains work to cool the engine in the rear of the car.
BMW i8 Interior Features
- The BMW i8's attention to detail is its key to success. Even when it comes to noise reduction, conventional glass is forfeited in favor of substantially lighter, chemically hardened glass, making for a quiet cabin without sacrificing the vehicle's lightweight design.
- BMW masterfully integrates the familiar and the futuristic into the design of this car's cozy cabin. It is modern and fresh with the use of recycled materials, available naturally tanned leather, and optional blue accents throughout. This is the face of the future of sporty luxury.
- A multi-tiered and layered cockpit makes the driver feel confident, pampered, and connected.
- Efficiency isn't just in the BMW i8's engineering and construction. It's also about driving smarter, like by using BMW ConnectedDrive to choose the most efficient navigation route possible (something the system does for you using topography and traffic information).
