BMW i proudly introduces the BMW i8 Concept Spyder. The combination of intelligent, lightweight design and cutting edge BMW eDrive technology imbues this new model with genuine sports car performance, yet its fuel consumption is no greater than that of a small car.
The BMW i8 Concept Spyder is powered by the groundbreaking BMW eDrive technology, consisting of an agile BMW electric motor, innovative battery technology and an intelligent engine management system, coupled with a TwinPower Turbo combustion engine. In a show of unmatched coordination – and due to the car’s minimised weight – this two-seated, open-top sports car reaches a combined system output of up to 260 kW (354 hp) while using no more than 2.7 litres of fuel at 100 km*.
The BMW i8 Concept Spyder proves that you should never underestimate the potential of electricity.
