A New and Innovative BMW – Allwheel Drive Electric Plugin Hybrid

A new breed of luxury sports cars is capturing the interest of the discriminating crowd. BMW has recently unveiled its electric plugin hybrid, the BMW – i8. This BMW – allwheel drive is more efficient and is also sleek and stylish.

While Tesla Motors has gone all-electric, BMW has opted to include hybrid plug-ins along with all electric cars. With these current versions, it will only be a matter of time until the costs of all electric cars will reach the point where conventional cars run by gasoline will no longer be attractive to most car buyers.

The current BMW – allwheel drive can give expensive and stylish gasoline cars a run for their money. It has features, specifications and capabilities that are not seen previously in its class and size.

The BMW i8 is poised to overhaul its vehicle class. As the first sports car with the consumption and emission values of a compact car, the BMW-i8 will capture the interest of car enthusiasts who are fuel efficient conscious.

The strength of this electric plugin hybrid lies, among other things, in the perfect synchronization of its combustion engine and electric motor. It is a feature that enables this car to deliver maximum efficiency and fluid dynamics on the road.

This car aptly illustrates progress in motion. It is equipped with the innovative LifeDrive architecture, created with ground-breaking materials such as carbon, layering design and numerous intelligent BMW EfficientDynamics technologies.

The current design of the BMW i8 illustrates the peak of its development: a plug-in hybrid with the style and exceptional performance of a sports car, while exhibiting the consumption and emissions of a compact car. This car convincingly resolves the apparent contradiction between exceptional fuel efficiency and excellent car dynamics.

The overall design of the BMW i8 represents the vision of a modern and eco-friendly sports car. Its stylish appearance displays the class and quality that BMW can offer. But this car is not only proud of its sports car attributes, but also its aerodynamics for maximum efficiency.

This modern eco-sports car offers not only pure athleticism but also a unique design concept that reinvents the definition of sporting mobility. Its powerful plug-in hybrid system combined with the BMW eDrive technology and a BMW TwinPower Turbo 1.5 litre, 3 cylinder petrol engine work synergistically to deliver an amazing driving experience.

The car’s electric drive makes it the most unique sports car ever built. It has a powerful 96 kW (131 horsepower) motor that is located at the front axle. Its rear axle, on the other hand, is powered by the robust BMW TwinPower Turbo petrol engine that can produce 231 hp. with a torque output of around 320 Nm.

The coupling of these two separate drive systems enables the BMW i8 to quickly accelerate from 0 to 100 kilometers per hour in just 4.4 seconds. Fuel efficiency is like no other because this car consumes only 2.1 litre per 100 km. And to top it all, its CO2 emission is just about 49 g/km.
