Unmatched driving pleasure with the chance to partake in the next generation of urban technology.
BMW i proudly introduces the BMW i8 Concept Spyder. The combination of intelligent lightweight design and cutting edge BMW eDrive technology imbues this new model with genuine sports car performance, yet its fuel consumption is no greater than that of a small car.
The BMW i8 Concept Spyder is a plug-in hybrid, powered by a high-performance drivetrain of electric motor and petrol combustion engine. In a show of unmatched coordination, the car’s minimised weight, low centre of gravity and finely judged balance, coupled with a combined system output of up to 260 kW (354 hp). That is enough to accelerate the BMW i8 Concept Spyder from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in five seconds on the way to an electronically governed top speed of 250 km/h (155 mph). Despite this performance, the two-seater burns just 2.7 litres of petrol per 100 kilometres (equivalent to fuel economy of 104 mpg imp) in the European test cycle.
