The new 2015 BMW i8 is anything but ordinary. Looking like something straight from the future, the sports car has something that is slowly taking the auto industry by storm: a three-cylinder turbo and an electric motor. The i8 is a plug-in hybrid that is both environmentally friendly and powerful, which is truly something unique!
The Motley Fool reports that “the i8 delivers on its looks. While it doesn't have exotic-car top speeds (it's electronically limited to a maximum of 155 mph), it has the acceleration and handling you'd expect of a sports car in this price class.” Going for a premium $136,000, it is no surprise that the i8 is able to seamlessly merge the power of a sports car with brilliant efficiency without losing any of its sportiness.
This electric speed demon gets 76 "MPGe," which is the miles-per-gallon equivalent for plug-in electric vehicles. As far as electric vehicles go, that is a pretty exceptional number. To learn more about this and other fantastic BMW models, test drive our lineup here at JMK BMW.
