2015 BMW i8 Exclusive Renderings
- image 461441

A few weeks ago, we reported that the fate of the BMW i-sub-brand was uncertain and that BMW had already dropped some of the new i models, including the i1 and the i5. Thankfully, the company will continue developing the car we have all been waiting for: the i8.

We’ve already had the pleasure of capturing the i8 during a couple of testing sessions, but now we’ve stripped away the camouflage and created a rendering to see the true beauty of BMW’s new ride. The upcoming i8 supercar will be powered by a 1.5 liter three-cylinder engine paired with two electric motors for a total output of 400 HP. The engine will be mated to a new double clutch transmission and will sprint the future supercar from 0 to 60 mph in just 4 seconds. The company has promised a fuel economy of 58 MPG and an autonomy of 400 kilometers.

The new BMW i8 will be making its official debut in 2013, so stay tuned!
