BMW i8 CONCEPT CAR

June 2014 | Automobile

The BMW i8 is a high performance concept vehicle that offers more than a comfortable and luxury ride. This car is fast but is also light and great on fuel usage with your choice of a V-8 or V-10 engine that has several turbochargers. The uniqueness about this concept car is that it has two powertrains. An electric motor is upfront and receives its energy from a battery pack for the front wheels while the rear wheels are controlled by a turbocharged 1.5-liter three-cylinder engine. The i8 can run around 20 miles using only electric power for lower speeds all due to the 7.2 kilowatt hour lithium ion battery pack that is found in the tunnel located between the seats upfront. For higher speeds, the 220 hp engine creates 220 lb ft for the rear wheels. It'll go from 0 to 62 miles per hour in under 5 seconds and can reach top speeds of 150 miles per hour.  www.bmw.com
