BMW i8


The BMW i8 was started from scratch as an idea of a plug-in hybrid sports car with phenomenal performance as well as extraordinary mileage efficiency. Its LifeDrive architecture offers the best platform for a weight-minimizing construction for the i8, and low center of gravity with even weight balance. The gas, electric engine, power pack, electronics, frame components, and crash functions are all organized within the aluminum Drive module, while the primary element of the Life model is the i8’s carbon fiber passenger cell. The framework allows  freedom of design, which has been used within the structure of the design created for BMW i – to give the BMW i8 its stunning appearance.

What started as a creation of premium cars designed to be powered by purely electric hybrid drive systems. This electric drive technology is a primary part of the vehicle concept different to the “conversion” model, where vehicles are fitted with electric drive systems. Characteristics of the BMW driving dynamics combined with no pollution mobility, energy flow management, lightweight construction, and production process. Comes together to make the premium character of BMW i cars.
