The life nowadays is motion. And motion means progress. BMW I is a far-reaching and ground-breaking concept for ecological mobility, it combines visionary electric vehicles and network services, comfort and sustainability, BMW I proves that premium can be comfortable and easy taking care of. BMW i8 is the shape of the future that can be seen today. BMW i8 is a thoroughbred sport car that gives a new, outstanding experience of driving. The BMW Efficient Dynamics technology offers a fuel economy that can compete with that of a small car. It also has a lightweight construction.
Creativity that precedes that car conceived the lightweight construction of the new BMW i8 from the beginning to meet the demands of a hybrid sport car. The LifeDrive architecture consists of 2 parts, each tailored to fit their requirements. The aluminum body or Drive module contains the lithium-ion high-voltage battery the other drivetrain composes the front and the rear. In between is the Life module, the passenger cell. This is built of high-strength carbon(CFRP), an ideal material, extremely stable, with ultra-light degree of flexibility and weight that allows a large design freedom. An electric motor, a lithium-ion high-voltage battery and an advanced energy management system make up the innovative BMW eDrive technology package.
BMW i8 accelerates from 0 to 100km/h in 4.4 seconds, together with the newly developed 1.5 liter, three-cylinder petrol engine with BMW TwinPower Turbo technology and 170kW (231hp) at the rear axle.
The new BMW i3 is ideally balanced, with the axle load split 50:50 front to rear. The true power of the BMW i3 can be discovered outside town, with four-wheel drive propelling fast to 200km/h. It switches to all electric drive only with a touch of the finger for a top speed of 120 km/h silently and with zero emissions.
A sport car craves for aerodynamics, so here it is. The graceful lines and flat silhouette of the new BMW i8 and everything about this car is designed for aerodynamic perfection paired with the highest aesthetic standards. Be a witness of the kidney grille, which allows as much air as required inside, or the hand-free ”scissor” doors.
I think everyone that will see the expressive LED headlights with extended features will love them, as they will when they see the sustainable, amazing BMW i3
This technology has been developed by BMW to give a particularly bright, white light and increased range for remarkably effective road illumination. At the same time, however, it consumes only a fraction of the energy used by conventional headlights.
