The production version BMW i8 will be finally making its world debut next week at the Frankfurt Motor Show and, to prepare the event, BMW unveiled a pretty cool teaser video to offer us a first glimpse at the second "i" member, after the production version i3.

According to BMW, the new "i" brand "is synonymous with visionary mobility concepts and a new definition of premium quality that is strongly focused on sustainability." And, as we can see from this teaser video, the next i8 is no exception from this definition. It will be powered by a 1.5-liter, 3-cylinder TwinPower Turbo gasoline engine combined with an electric motor for a total output of 362horsepower and 420 pound-feet of torque. As a result, the i8 will go from 0 to 60 mph less than 4.5 seconds and up to an electronically-limited top speed of 155 mph.

The production version BMW i8 will be unveiled on September 10, 2013, so stay tuned!
