The 2+2 features a three-cylinder gas engine with BMW’s TwinPower Turbo technology that works in conjunction with BMW’s eDrive system to deliver a total of 362 hp (420 lb-ft of torque) giving the i8 a 0-62 time of 4.4 seconds and a top speed of 155 mph (120 mph on electric power alone). Being an “i” car, the i8 is all about efficiency, the car has an all-electric range of up to 22 miles and a combined range of up to 310 miles when throwing gas in the mix. As for tech the i8 has it in spades, you’ll find that full-LED headlights are standard and BMW will also offer a world’s first in a production vehicle, optional laser headlights which are significantly brighter than LEDs and consume half as much energy. ConnectedDrive also keeps you connected to your car via BMW’s i Remote smartphone app, updates on nearby charging stations, and a Surround View camera system that gives you a bird’s eye view of the car. Look for the BMW i8 to hit showrooms in early 2014.
