The i8 Concept was revealed by BMW

The two-door i8 Concept sports part was revealed by BMW. The carmaker imagined this model will be the model of a sustainable future as it has a plug-in hybrid engine. On top of this, the model has a lot of interior space for four people.
This concept car has a mix of the electric drive system of the i3 with a combustion engine, and so the axle in the front receives power from an electric motor that is able to deliver 170 horsepower and 250 Nm of torque and the one in the rear receives the power from a 3-cylinder combustion engine that delivers 164 horsepower and 300 Nm of torque.
After just a small sum, you will find the real output of the i8 Concept. The engine is able to produce 390 horsepower and 550 Nm of torque.
The team declared that the model is able to accelerate from 0 to 62 mph in less than 5 seconds and it also has low fuel consumption, less than 3 l / 100 km. The i8 has a lithium-ion battery that can be re-charged from a home outlet that will allow you to drive for up to 35 km on just electric power.
Well we have to admit, this is a great car.
