Vehicle Overview

The all-new BMW i8 is a plug-in hybrid sports car that's designed for both performance and efficiency. It features an electric drivetrain that provides up to 22 miles of all-electric range as well as a turbocharged three-cylinder gas engine that works with the electric motor to accelerate the i8 from zero to 62 mph in 4.4 seconds, according to BMW. All-wheel drive is standard and total system output is 362 horsepower and 420 pounds-feet of torque.

Like the new BMW i3 city car, the i8 features a carbon fiber reinforced plastic body atop an aluminum chassis for the drivetrain. The car's 2+2 arrangement provides seating for four but the rear seats are very small.

The i8 is scheduled to hit dealerships in spring 2014 with a starting price of $135,700 plus destination charge.
