BMW i8 Expert Review

0 Shares

Introduction

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

Pros
  • 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
Cons
  • 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

  • Eyeball-grabbing scissor doors favour easy ingress and egress

CarDekho 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.

"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!"
