BMW i8 coupe reinvents dynamists
With the BMW i8: even the wind is blowing. This is due not only to its athletic silhouette but also and above all to its aerodynamic body, its ultra-light structure and the futuristic design of the LED taillights through which the wind is blowing.
Take the lead while leaving a minimum behind. Thanks to the BMW i8 Coupe’s intelligent energy management, it coordinates the interaction of the electric motor and battery with the combustion engine – always aiming for maximum power and minimum consumption.
The result is a powerful and highly efficient Hybrid Plug-in Hybrid system, as the combined cycle consumption figures of just 1.9 l/100 km and CO2 emissions reduced to a maximum of 42 g/km are impressive proof of.
A NEW FORM OF LIGHTNESS
Take the lead, lightness with the new BMW i8.
One of the principles behind its unique lightweight architecture concept: the LifeDrive architecture. It is based on the Drive module – an aluminum chassis – and the Life module – an ultra-lightweight occupant cell made of high-strength carbon.
Both components have been optimized in terms of weight down to the last gram to allow the introduction of a sports vehicle that is designed to meet the requirements of sustainable development.
FREEDOM OF ACCESS TO EVERYTHING
Refueling or refueling – the new BMW i8 offers both at the same time. Thanks to the comprehensive 360° ELECTRIC product and service package.
At home, you can conveniently charge your BMW i8 at your leisure in the BMW i Wallbox or with the charging cable – and, if you wish, with sustainably produced electric power from BMW Green Energy powered by NATURSTROM.
The service includes personal advice as well as professional installation and commissioning of the BMW i Wallbox by a qualified electrician.
Along the way, you will find an increasing number of public charging points in which you can easily access the ChargeNow card.
You can find the location of the nearest charging point via the ChargeNow App, or optionally directly in your BMW i8 Coupe: for example via the fully connected BMW ConnectedDrive navigation services.
BMW i8 Connected App for iOS and android
BMW ConnectedDrive offers innovative solutions for the advanced interconnection of the new BMW i8 – for a sustainable and intelligent form of mobility without limits.

MOVING FORWARD SAFELY
No matter what happens: the BMW i8 Roadster is ready to deal with them thanks to a comprehensive range of assistance systems.
On wet surfaces, for example, the “dry brakes” function cleans the brake discs at regular intervals to minimize moisture. This is done without any noticeable braking of the vehicle.
In the event of bad weather, starting is made easier by Dynamic Traction Control (DTC), which limits wheel slip and ensures maximum traction.
While driving, this function is supported by BMW xDrive intelligent 4-wheel drive technology, which ensures a superior grip in any situation.
The system is activated in hybrid mode and distributes the driving forces generated by the two sources to all four wheels in a variable ratio depending on the situation.
Fuel consumption and CO₂ emissions of the BMW i8 coupe
BMW i8 Coupe :
Fuel consumption in l/100 km (combined cycle): 1.9 Power consumption in kWh/100 km (combined cycle): 14.0 CO2 emissions in g/km (combined cycle): 42
The data on fuel and electricity consumption and CO2 emissions have been determined in accordance with the measurement method prescribed by regulation VO (EU) 2007/715 in its current version.
The specified values apply to a vehicle with basic equipment in Germany, the deviations take into account differences in the dimensions of the selected rims and tyres and the selected optional equipment, they may vary during the configuration.
The data of the vehicles identified by are already determined using the new WLTP test cycle, weighted to be comparable to the NEDC cycle. [For these vehicles, the calculation of taxes and other charges related to the vehicle and also based on CO2 emissions may take as reference values other than those mentioned here].
The CO2 efficiency data are derived from Directive 1999/94/EC and the Passenger Car Regulation in their current version and are based on the fuel consumption and CO2 emission values of the NEDC cycle for the classification.
