The i8 Coupé, now using optimized BMW eDrive technology with hybrid-specific all-wheel drive, has increased power and range compared with its predecessor. And it has been joined for the 2019 model year by the i8 Roadster, adding top-down fun to sporty, yet economical, motoring. Both models are powered by a combination of hybrid synchronous electric motor and BMW TwinPower Turbo technology, a 228-hp, 1.5-litre three-cylinder gas engine. The engine’s power is channeled to the rear wheels through a six-speed Steptronic automatic transmission, while the electric motor propels the front wheels via a two-speed automatic gearbox. The end result is a hybrid-specific AWD system. The two-seat Roadster’s aerodynamically optimized exterior comes with model-specific gullwing doors and a soft-top roof. Passengers inside can either enjoy the open sky or an all-season fabric soft-top with additional soundproofing. The electrically operated convertible top opens and closes in less than 16 seconds while the vehicle is in motion at up to 50 km/h.
