BMW i8 2019 Car Review
The BMW i8 can be a plug-in hybrid performance car developed by BMW. The i8 is a component of BMW’s electric fleet “Project i” being marketed to be a new sub-brand, BMW i. The 2015 model year BMW i8 includes a 7.1 kWh lithium-ion battery power that delivers an all-electric variety of 37 km (23 mi) beneath the New European Driving Cycle. Under the United States Environmental Protection Agency cycle, the product range in EV mode is 24 km (15 mi) which has a small amount of gasoline consumption. Its design is heavily affected by the BMW M1 Homage concept car, which experts claim pays homage to BMW’s last production mid-engined fancy car prior to the i8: the BMW M1. The BMW i8 can accelerate at a dead-stop to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 4.4 seconds and possesses an electronic limited top speed of 250 km/h (155 mph). The BMW i8 carries a fuel efficiency of 2.1 L/100 km (134.5 mpg‑imp; 112.0 mpg‑US) in the NEDC test with carbon emissions of 49 g/km. The EPA rated the i8 combined fuel economy at 76 MPGe (3.1 L gasoline equivalent/100 km; 91 mpg-imp gasoline equivalent) and 29 miles per gallon (6.7L) when running in pure gasoline mode (following the battery is drained empty).
