BMW has finally announced a portion of its line-up to be showcased at this year’s Los Angeles International Auto Show press days. The products include the BMW Concept i8 Roadster, new BMW Concept K2 Powder Ride based on the popular BMW X1 with graphics designed by Designworks USA.
With a total powertrain output of 354bhp, 0-98kmph in 4.6 seconds with great efficiency, and unmatched style, BMW i8 Roadster is all set to shine at the upcoming LA Auto Show. The third BMW i concept embodies the future of cutting-edge and emotionally-appealing mobility concepts. The combination of intelligent lightweight design and state-of-the-art hybrid technology imbues the BMW i8 Concept Roadster with genuine sports car performance, yet its efficiency, at an estimated 33kmpl, is better than most small cars.
Among the most attractive features of the BMW i8 Concept Roadster are the upward-swiveling, windowless doors and a range of purpose-oriented on-board equipment including electric kickboards stowed under a transparent tailgate. The car is based on BMW’s innovative LifeDrive architecture, which is underpinned by a lightweight, modular construction and the use of exotic materials. The BMW i8 Concept Roadster is a plug-in hybrid vehicle powered by a high-performance drivetrain of electric motor and gasoline combustion engine. The lithium-ion battery supplying the motor with power can be recharged in a short time.
