    Overview

    Ruling the roads with pride, the elite German Automaker has its grip in almost each and every segment and now the manufacturer has its eye on the future with its most progressive sports car. The sporty character of the BMW i8 is recognizable with its intelligent drive control system which results in high efficiency and optimal dynamics. BMW i8 is among some of the few sports cars that offer adrenaline rush without being too harsh on the environment due to its green drivetrain. This is the next sports car after M1 which has gained so much appreciation from the petrolheads across the globe and same is the case with the local market.

    Interior & Features

    The sporty character is carried forward by the interior designing of the car in an effective manner. Within the cockpit, the layering principle creates a peculiar relationship between functionalities and clear form. The gear shifting is easily accessible whereas, the dashboard is less cluttered. Plenty of storage compartments have been provided to store your knick-knacks. The high-grade upholstery along with the seats fabricated with soft leather add to the beauty. The steering wheel wrapped in leather has the company insignia placed on its centre which adds to the style quotient. With the special option of interior lighting, one can create pleasant ambiance according to the mood. The different options of HALO, NESO and CAPRO provide a choice of high-quality equipment lines, which further emphasize the idea behind the future sports car in an efficacious manner.

    Exterior

    Sports car at first look, but the overall styling of i8 reflects a clear connection between innovative sustainability and premium character. BMW i8 has kept the basic folklore of the German company by providing dynamic demeanor and elite aesthetics to the car. Just like any other BMW model, the prominent kidney grille, aggressive headlights, and sporty profile all together look captivating. The black design element continues to flow all over the body and is kept consistent in every 'I' model. The car's wide stance is further emphasized through flat silhouette and powerfully shaped surfaces as well as precise contours. The aerodynamic side profile in harmonics with the sporty rear gives this car a touch of sophistication. The elongated bonnet along with the plunging roofline till the rear mirror is a masterpiece work. The swinging start is a result of scissor doors that not only enhance the sporty character, they are an instantly recognizable factor of the car.

    Engine & Fuel Consumption

    The foundation of one of the most innovative cars is led by an effective petrol engine coupled to a powerful electric motor, which together drives the car swiftly. The electric drive is situated at the front axle which churns out a maximum power of 131 hp while the 1.5-litre three-cylinder petrol engine churns out a maximum power of 231 hp at 5800 rpm coupled with a peak torque of 320 Nm at 3700 rpm. Despite having a potent engine and sporty styling, BMW i8 emits the lowest carbon emission with a value of 59 g/km.

    Braking Safety

    A safety system that is perfectly tailored to the vehicle in an effective manner. Dynamic Stability Control (DSC) and Cornering Brake Control (CBC) give a superior adhesion even on the wettest terrains. The anti-dazzle high beam assistant detects other vehicles on the road and selectively excludes them from the high beam headlight distribution. The car has been embedded with optimally situated airbags that ensure maximum safety of passengers in case of a collision. In addition to this, camera systems for Surround view and Side view with object detection offer maximum flexibility during parking.
