BMW showcased the i8 Roadster in India at the Auto Expo 2018 (you can read more about it here). BMW has kicked-off production of the open-top version of the i8 hybrid sportscar at its Leipzig plant in Germany. The BMW i8 makes extensive use of carbon-fibre across its platform and body panels. The upcoming facelift version of the sportscar is expected to use even more of the lightweight material. The aluminium wheels seen on the current generation are expected to be swapped with carbon-fibre units. Apart from its futuristic styling, the other highlight of the i8 are its butterfly doors.
Powering the BMW i8 is a 1.5-litre, 3-cylinder, turbocharged petrol engine mated to a 6-speed automatic gearbox. This engine generates 234PS of power and 320Nm of peak torque. The sportscar also features a 7.1kWh battery which bumps up the power and torque figure to 367PS and 570Nm, respectively. It sprints from 0-100kmph in just 4.4 seconds and has an electronically-limited top speed of 250kmph. BMW claims the hybrid sportscar has a fuel efficiency figure of 47.45kmpl. The upcoming i8 facelift is likely to get 18 per cent more power than the current generation. This means we can expect the second-gen i8 to produce up to 431PS.
Currently, the BMW i8 is only available in a single variant, which costs Rs 2.62 crore (ex-showroom Delhi). It does not have any direct rivals in the country.
