The sports car of tomorrow has hit the showrooms of today, with two expressive body styles to suit your every athletic whim.
Prices for the BMW i8 Coupé
start at £112,730 OTR and the Roadster from £124,730 OTR.
The elegantly-hinged dihedral doors move forwards and upwards, and emphasise the vehicle’s sporty appearance. The generously proportioned door cut-outs also make access easier.
The LED rear lights are designed in BMW i typical icon graphics and contribute considerably to the overall design of the BMW i8 Coupé.
Thanks to its sporty, modern and sustainable design, driving the BMW i8 Coupé is truly unmistakable. Standout features include the new Carpo interior trim available in Ivory White/Black, which can be applied to the contour lines of the doors, the steering wheel and much more. Optional new trims, such as the Accaro interior trim, are also available.
Attract attention with the standard 20” BMW i W-Spoke style 470 or with the optional 20” BMW i light-alloy wheels with 516 radial spoke design in Bicolor.
Charging or refuelling – both are easy with the 360° ELECTRIC package. At home, charge with the BMW i Wallbox or the charging cable. You can also use sustainably-generated electricity from BMW Green Energy powered by Good Energy. On the road, the growing number of public charging stations can be easily used with the ChargeNow card. Find a charging station with the ChargeNow app or from directly within your BMW i8 Coupé.
The intelligent energy management of the BMW i8 Coupé coordinates the interaction between the electric motor and the battery with the combustion engine. It’s always geared towards maximum performance with minimum consumption. This creates enormous efficiency, with CO2 emissions of up to only 42g/km*.
A true sports car, the new i8 doesn’t skimp on performance. The electric motor has a top output of 143hp, with a maximum torque of 250Nm; put it all together and one can enjoy acceleration from 0 to 62mph in 4.4 seconds from the coupé, and 4.6 seconds in the Roadster. Both models are electronically limited to a peak speed of 155 mph.
Dynamic by nature, the new BMW i8 also utilizes hybrid-specific all-wheel drive, as well as five driving modes; hybrid drive with COMFORT, SPORT or ECO PRO settings and all-electric driving in COMFORT or ECO PRO.
When it comes to driver assistance, the i8 continues to be bountiful. Collision and Pedestrian Warning with City Braking function, Park Distance Control with sensors at the front and rear, High Beam Assistant, Speed Limit Info including No Passing Info display, and the Side View and Top View function are all part of the package. In addition, trailblazing laser headlights (BMW Laserlights with BMW Selective Beam) are non-dazzling with a range of up to 600 metres. That’s some serious visibility.
Of course, the i8 wouldn’t be a BMW without offering flawless connectivity. The BMW Connected App is a mobility assistant which syncs with one’s smartphone or smartwatch, putting connectivity firmly at your fingertips.
Prices for the BMW i8 Coupé start at £112,730 OTR and the Roadster from £124,730 OTR.
