Are you tired of looking at the outside of the BMW i8 yet? Well, of course you are not, but that doesn’t mean that a nice video of the inner workings isn’t in order.
And that is exactly what BMW did, outlining just a bit of the engineering that went into building the hybrid sportscar.
By now, we already know about what powers the BMW i8. We know that the hybrid solution comes in the form of a front mounted electric motor and a rear mounted gasoline engine. Coupled together, they output some 362 Hp and 570 Nm of torque. The acceleration time to 100 km/h (4.4 seconds) is also not news.
So then, what is the whole point of the video? Apart from a nice, slightly over the top presentation, not much. Sure, it’s nice to see all this information neatly compiled into a smooth video easy to understand, but for those who are interested in the underworkings of the i8 some numbers and graphs are enough.
