BMW i8 Review

Available in a single variant, the BMW i8 is priced at Rs 2.62 crore (ex-showroom India).

Verdict

With a hefty sticker price, the BMW i8 is certainly not a logical buy. It is rather about the statement you make with this forerunner of future performance motoring, which will be fun as well as efficient and greener.

Pros & Cons of BMW i8

CarDekho Experts:
The BMW i8 flaunts the looks of a supercar, offers the thrills of a performance sports car and is as clean as a Toyota Prius!

Things We Like

  • Futuristic styling makes it stand out in front of more capable and similarly priced supercars
  • The BMW i8 is not only fast but extremely frugal as well, with a nearly 50kmpl certified fuel efficiency figure
  • Significantly green compared to other performance as well as regular cars with combined CO2 emissions of 50.369g/km
  • Lightweight construction with an amalgamation of a carbon fibre passenger tub and an aluminium chassis

Things We Don't Like

  • Given the exclusivity the i8 holds, BMW should’ve featured exclusive parts on the inside as it has several common components from the BMW parts bin
  • The exorbitant price tag makes it fall into better-performing supercar territory

Stand Out Features

  • BMW i8 Eyeball-grabbing scissor doors favour easy ingress and egress
