As I have written about before, the BMW i8 plugin hybrid stands for sustainability. All throughout the value chain. In addition complementary mobility services and a fresh understanding of premium. I mean quality defined squarely in terms of sustainability.
The BMW i8 plugin hybrid is a new, cutting-edge generation of sports car. It stands out in a crowd (you don’t have to worry about that folks!). The second model unveiled by the new BMW i brand combines a plug-in hybrid drive system with a passenger cell made from carbon-fiber-reinforced plastic (CFRP) and an aluminum frame for the combustion engine and electric motor, the battery pack and the suspension.
Breaking new ground: premium cars underpinned by sustainability-led concepts arrive in the sports car segment.
Also as BMW states: another intoxicating chapter is written in the success story of the BMW i8. Because the 2+2-seater is the world’s highest- selling plug-in hybrid sports car since its launch in 2014! Now it is joined by the new BMW i8 Roadster in the line-up. The open-top two-seater with electrically operated soft-top. This adds a whole new sensation of freedom. All to the combination of locally emission-free mobility and high-caliber performance. It opens the door to virtually silent motoring with zero CO2 emissions.
