The BMW i8 is a plug-in hybrid performance car based on the Vision EfficientDynamics concept revealed at the 2009 International Motor Show in Frankfurt.
The gull-winged sports car has a 0-60 mph of less than 5 seconds, and is electronically limited to a top speed of 134 mph.
Using only the battery power and the electric motor, the 2+2 can travel about 20 miles on electric power alone before switching on its high-performance 3-liter engine.
Its battery can be fully recharged using a standard power socket in 2 hours.
The i8's LED tail lights are integrated into the upper layer of the vehicle's rear end.
Lines along the flanks are meant to give the i8 the impression of forward motion, even when it is at a standstill.
The BMW i8 concept shares interior design styling cues and a color palate with the i3 concept.
The i8's battery bisects the cabin and separates the driver from the passengers.
The i8's freestanding information display shows relevant driving data in three-dimensional and high-resolution formats.
