Outside, a striking silhouette sporting breakthrough streamflow design that takes aerodynamics where it has never gone before.
Inside, advanced plug-in hybrid technology generates speeds of up to 250km/h while consuming just 2.0l/100km, with just 46g/km worth of emissions. Think of it as the shape of things to come, built on all-new LifeDrive architecture and first-ever lightweight technology.
This is the first-ever BMW i8 Roadster. The icon of a new era.
Perfect harmony; this is what our most progressive sports car yet is all about. The seamless synchronicity of an electric motor and combustion engine accelerates this unique plug-in hybrid beyond anything ever seen before; meanwhile, performance that is ahead of the curve – way ahead – is matched, pound for pound, by the consumption and emission values of a compact car. So really, the all-new BMW i8 Coupé is not merely the sports car of the future; it is the future of mobility.FIND OUT MORE
With the BMW iPerformance vehicles, we are matching our future-forward mobility ambitions with an eye on absolutely zero emissions. The BMW eDrive electric drive technology developed by BMW i and used in the iPerformance range allows for purely electric short and medium range mobility by combining an electric motor, lithium-ion battery and intelligent energy management, with the TwinPower turbo petrol engine activating when necessary.
You can experience BMW eDrive in the BMW 3 Series, BMW 5 Series, BMW X5, BMW 7 Series and the BMW i8.
BMW EfficientDynamics is exactly that; a strategy to increase the efficiency of fuel consumption and reduce emissions, combined with exceptional driving dynamics for enhanced driving pleasure. It comes standard with every BMW; just like sheer driving pleasure.FIND OUT MORE

While others talk sustainability, BMW i lives it. From reinventing our development process for electric mobility, to overhauling our production processes with 100% clean, renewable energy and using up to 95% recyclable material in the creation of our vehicles, we are owning the conversation in conservation. Learn how BMW i puts sustainability first.
Instead of integrating just one electric drivetrain into an already existing model, the entire BMW i vehicle concept has been designed especially for electric mobility. This not only affects the aerodynamic vehicle design, but also the materials that are used. Wherever possible, we have employed sustainable or recycle materials.
New energy for new ideas: the BMW i plant in Leipzig obtains 100% of its energy supply from regenerative sources, among them four wind turbines installed on the site specifically for this purpose. The carbon fibres are produced to 100% with water power.
Zero emissions – and almost free of noise and odour. Driving BMW i is not only fun, it also reduces air pollutions, such as in cities. Innovations such as the ECO PRO Mode additionally reduce power consumption and increase the electric range.
Time for new values: 95% of the materials incorporated into a BMW i3 can be recycled. Surplus carbon fibres, for example, can be fed back into the production process or recycled in other areas. The battery modules can also be recycled as interim storage for solar or wind energy plants.
