With its fascinating holistic concept, the BMW i8 brings the vision of a modern and sustainable sports car to life. The highly-emotional design immediately makes it clear what qualities the BMW i8 has to offer. Dynamic proportions show off its acceleration potential even when it’s standing still; and yet it doesn’t rely on being a pure-blooded sports car. Its aesthetics always follow a functional goal: for example, more aerodynamics for maximum efficiency and absolute performance.

Drive & efficiency

More than just sporty. The BMW i8 revolutionised sporty mobility with its unique drive concept. It marked a new level of evolution for BMW EfficientDynamics technology. Its plug-in hybrid concept and the combination of three-cylinder petrol engine and LifeDrive architecture specific to BMW i ensure a fascinating driving experience. And prove that dynamics and efficiency aren’t opposites, but can be experienced simultaneously.
