The BMW i8 embodies the accomplished vision of a modern and sustainable sports car. The powerful plug-in hybrid system with the combination of BMW eDrive technology and a BMW TwinPower Turbo 1.5-litre, 3-cylinder petrol engine brings together the benefits of an electric motor and a petrol engine to produce an outstanding driving experience.
The i8 offers a variety of modes for an exceptional driving experience: COMFORT, ECO PRO, SPORT. 100% electric driving is possible up to a range of 37 km* as is an extremely athletic sports car for out-of-town driving. Pressing the eDrive button adapts the BMW i8 for purely electric driving. This is possible in the COMFORT and ECO PRO modes. In the COMFORT mode with eDrive, the BMW i8 drives without support from the combustion engine until the battery is almost exhausted.
