2013 BMW i8 Concept

Tuesday, July 2, 2013

The Concept

One simple letter has redefined our generation: “i.” Although originally signifying the power of the Internet, “i” has become symbol of the technological advances of the future. Therefore BMW has recently adopted the “i” to rename what they call “an icon of progress,” the 2013 i8 concept car. 

Described as emotional, dynamic, and efficient, the i8 concept takes the i3 concept to the next level.  Using both a plug-in hybrid concept, and the i3’s modified electric car system with a high performance three-cylinder combustion engine, the talent of the vehicle is endless. With two specified driving systems, the i8 delivers sports car performance with the fuel consumption of a smaller vehicle. Acceleration on this car also exceeds expectations offering speeds up to 62 mph in less than 5 seconds.  The newest eDrive technology, charged easily from a domestic power supply, provides travel up to 20 miles on solely electric power.  These statistics currently exceed the capabilities of other vehicles of comparable performance that contain a combustion engine.

BMW is promoting the i8 concept with a LifeDrive architecture meaning the car has a high level of everyday practicality as well as unique sports car characteristics. This includes a 2+2-seater granting four people space, as well as outstanding driving dynamics.

A “low centre of gravity” is created by an “energy tunnel” connecting the motor located in the front axle module with the combustion engine at the rear.  Together this results in a well-balanced 50/50 weight distribution.

The BMW is the sports car for a new generation. Its design for both the interior and exterior is cutting-edge and extremely technical.  The information below highlights possible i8 interior and exterior features:


  • Porcelain white support structure
  • Mocha brown leather
  • Graphically strong center console
  • Three-dimensional displays
  • Freestanding information display in the dash  


  • Dynamic Side view
  • Door simulating  a wing motion                                              
  • LED headlights
  • Sporty back end
  • Horizontal headlight design      

The BMW i8 is fast, fuel-efficient, and future oriented. The i8 is more than vehicle; it is a luxury lifestyle everyone can experience.
