BMW Still Considering i9 Manufacturing

The famous BMW i8 might be soon receiving a little sibling, as the German based automaker is planning to introduce a successor, in the body style of the long-rumored i9 model, which would be introduced somewhere in 2016.

With the i9 along, the BMW would actually complete the whole “i” brand with three models, the i3, the i8 and the i9 model.

The news with an upcoming BMW i9 were published by Autocar, which had its inside sources revealing the company`s future plans for a more aggressive body style model, which would also sport a much more powerful electric motor.

To be a reminder, the BMW i8 is powered by a 1.5-liter turbocharged three-cylinder petrol unit, backed by an electric motor.

On the other side, the BMW i9 version would sport a 3.0-liter modular six-cylinder engine, also to equip the future 7-Series models.

The BMW i9 might be faster enough to sprint from 0 to 100 km/k in less than 4.4 seconds, which is the record output by the i8.

So far, this is what we know about the future i9, but stay tuned, as more info are foreseen in the near future.
