Our company can supply the BMW i8 model for RHD and LHD buyers located world wide. This pioneering 2+2 seater model is the world's best selling hybrid sports car since its launch in 2014 and we encourage buyers to contact us to discuss their BMW i8 import requirements.
The BMW i8 Coupe is powered by a hybrid synchronous electric motor and a three-cylinder petrol derived engine with BMW TwinPower Turbo technology.
The latest version eDrive system allows the electric motor to adapt to various driving situations on the road. In contrast, the petrol combustion engine kicks in when the car accelerates hard and then switches off when the driver adopts a more stable driving pattern. The lithium-ion battery has been updated for the latest model BMW i8 import and the unit is centrally located in the underbody of the car with the increased cell capacity pushed to 34 Ah so the electric motor has more energy to dispose of.
The vehicle dynamics are enhanced with the location of the battery pack which enables the car to have a low centre of gravity. The economy would be around the 80 mpg mark and it would take around 2 hours to recharge the battery to full capacity.
The electric range of the BMW i8 has also been improved with 55 Kms (34 miles) with zero local emissions.
Design wise, the BMW i8 import possesses gullwing doors that open forward and upwards and the car now has improved aerodynamics with a new low bonnet, air flap control system and Air Curtains in the front apron.
The BMW i8 has engine power which is channelled to the rear wheels through the latest version six-speed Steptronic transmission, while the electric motor moves the front wheels via a two-speed automatic gearbox. The result is a hybrid-specific all-wheel-drive system that enables the BMW i8 to have brilliant road holding capability.
