BMW i8 Review

BMW is working hard to please its fans and for the future generation of hybrid plug-ins, it wants to combine the two main assets that make a car a selling success, the ecological and sport factor. If the i3 generation focused on the ecological part the i8 generation tends to be a little more aggressive with 362 HP and weighing less than 1,5 tons. But is this unit the best blend between sport cars and ecological vehicles?

BMW i 8 review will take a place in the next article. BMW wants to sell it as being such and we cannot deny the fact that the car is fuel efficient and has a nice dynamics. The main qualities of this model are the low weight due to its light body, an optimized dynamics, TwinPower Turbo technology for the 1,5 litre engine and BME eDrive propulsion technology. The exterior design of the BMW i8 generation spotted during a test drive presents an attractive plug-in which means the designers worked hard to make this new generation more attractive than ever. The car body is designed after Life Drive technology, an extra safe technology which makes the passenger cells particularly secure in case of a crash. These cells are made out of carbon fibre which allows the vehicle to sport a  total weight of 1.490 Kg. The unit is closer to the ground and has its weight well distributed in the front and back making it easy to handle and quite agile.

Since we are talking about a hybrid car, the new BMW generation is powered by a gas engine which produces 231 HP and an electric engine which produces 131 HP. The electric engine can be recharged at any household plug and the unit has an overall electric autonomy of 35 Km at a tip speed of 120 Km/H. The BMW i8 unit has a fuel intake lower than 2,5 litres per 100Km and the CO2 emissions won’t go past 59 G/Km.
