We finally get an official word from BMW on the highly anticipated i8 plug-in hybrid sports car, a model which is confirmed to debut at the upcoming Frankfurt Motor Show.
With the new BMW i3 revealed few days ago, it’s bigger and more powerful brother, the i8, will share the Frankfurt stage as well.
Under the hood, expect to see a three-cylinder petrol unit alongside an electric motor with an output of 170 horsepower and 250Nm of torque.
An all-electric driving range of 35 kilometers is expected with fuel economy figures of 3 liters/100km or 94,1mpg UK. The 0-100 km/h acceleration will be possible in less than five seconds.
It is really nice to see that we will finally get a complete look at the production version of the BMW i8 later this year, at Frankfurt. The model is scheduled to go on sale in the first months of 2014.
