Auto Review of BMW i8

Thanks for reading my last post. I hoped you enjoyed it.  Stay tuned for a new website! Hope you enjoy this one too!  Abdullah Raza Butt

The BMW i8, the bigger brother of the BMW i3 , looks and feels like the younger brother. They are both part of ‘Project i’. The i8 was first unveiled as a concept car in 2009 as the ‘BMW Vision EfficientDynamics’ at the Frankfurt Motor Show.

The i8 is an electric hybrid offering 357bhp. Change into Sport mode and 0-60 takes 4.2 seconds. Comfort and Economy modes are included.

The architecture of this car also uses the LifeDrive styling, exactly like the BMW i3. Scissor doors have also been used, which makes the car immediately recognisable. You can have a choice of 6 colour options, each better than the last. On the inside, there is an touchpad display for you to use to your desire, featuring GPS navigation, live traffic coverage, a full list of charging stations around you (added to the points of interest menu), Bluetooth calling, voice commands, and the ability to watch videos from your USB stick or the on-board hard drive. I mean, you could watch a full movie in this car, with the Harman Kardon audio system with 11 speakers and a 360 watt amp, specially built for the i8.

The steering wheel has different colours, depending on the colour configuration you chose for the interior. Shortcuts for easy access to the features of the monitor are also included on the wheel, providing it straight to your hands. Even the speedometer is digital.

The car also equips the ConnectedDrive feature- offering you the ability to download the app to your smartphone-the ConnectedDrive app- and tell the computer of the car over the internet to come and pick you up at your location. The car also uses sensors to tell if someone or something is infront or behind it so the car is safe from pedestrians, vehicles, surfaces and even walls. Also with the app, you can check the charge status seamlessly easy.

The car looks more of a concept than production car, and is the cheapest car around with a full carbon fibre body. It will cost around $135,000 or £99,845 before the government grant in the UK.

This car is an amazing achievement for BMW, and if this is what they can achieve right now…what can they achieve…in the future?
