The 2015 BMW i8 is a plug-in hybrid featuring a turbo 3-cylinder engine producing 228 HP and 238 lb-ft of torque sending power to the rear wheels. At the front of the car, an electric motor supplies 129 HP and 184 lb-ft giving the vehicle AWD control. There’s a two-speed automatic transmission up front for the motor, and a 6-speed automatic transmission in the rear for the ICE. Total system output is 357 HP and 420 lb-ft. There’s a 7.1 kW lithium ion battery onboard for pure EV driving.
Built into all new BMWs is the Enlighten App which provides a countdown of traffic lights for when they will turn red/green. An incredible feature that allows for better timing of lights, saves you fuel though improved driving, and gives you peace of mind knowing when the light will change.
