The fuel consumption of a small car with the performance of a sports car – the BMW i8 has it all thanks to its hybrid engine. With electric front-wheel drive, the coupé travels at up to 120 km/h, and the three-cylinder TwinPower Turbo engine powers the rear axle. The system delivers 362 hp (266 kW), and since 2018, 374 hp (275 kW), ensuring a driving dynamic that combines the best of both worlds. This pioneering vehicle is also the first production vehicle to offer optional laser light headlamps. From 2018, the BMW i8 is also available as a roadster, with more than 20,500 units built.
