The German automakers greatest innovation, BMW i8 is officially arrived in the automobile market of India. This breathtaking super sports car has all the whistles and bells to steals the hearts of car enthusiasts across the globe. It is currently introduced as a completely built in unit (CBU) and is made available in one variant only. This sports cars front axle is equipped with an electric motor, whereas its rear one is fitted with a 1.5-litre petrol engine. The combination of these two engines help the vehicle to give away a peak mileage of 47.5 Kmpl, which is better than any other four wheeler in the automobile segment. With purely electric driving mode, this vehicle can achieve a top speed of 120 Kmpl owing to its eDrive technology. Its electric motor is further accompanied by a 5.2kWh battery, which takes about 2.5 hrs to get fully charged. However, with the help of BMW Wallbox charger, this time period goes down to less than two hours. Beside innovation technology, ultra-modern exterior and interior styling is the main highlight of BMW i8 Hybrid. Both its outside and inside styling represents the layered principle and is further highlighted by blue accents all round. At the same time, the elegant LED lighting pattern enhances its dynamic appeal.

These wheel arches can be fitted with either 'W' spoke or turbine styling alloy wheels, which further adds to its breathtaking stance. Its front facade looks even stunning owing to its extremely sleek headlight cluster and aerodynamic body structure. In the center, there is a kidney bean shaped grille with metallic and blue accents. The company's insignia has been placed on top of the hood, which is complimented by the expressive design on its bonnet.
