2017 BMW i8 ratings and reviews

The 2017 BMW i8 performance coupe seems to be a car designed for someone who wants driving excitement but is also concerned about the planet. The i8 is made of a lightweight carbon fiber and aluminum body, allowing it to produce handling and acceleration similar to other big-name sport coupes. But the hybrid engine brings its fuel economy closer to that of a compact coupe. Under the hood sits a 1.5-liter turbocharged inline-3 engine and AC synchronous electric motor/generator with a 5 kWh lithium-ion battery pack and 357 horsepower. The electric-only range is 15 miles while the combined range is 330 miles. Since the i8 is a BMW, you can bet that it comes loaded with standard features, including rain-sensing windshield wipers, adaptive cruise control, front and rear parking sensors, BMW assist with 24/7 emergency assistance, and a carbon-fiber-reinforced passenger cell.
