The Fuel-Efficient Powertrain of The BMW i8
When a sports car appears as powerful and fast as the i8, serious performance is expected. The 2016 i8's powerful yet efficient TwinPower Turbo 3-cylinder engine is paired with an innovative electric motor. Together, these two engines work in tandem to provide a total output of 357 horsepower and 420 lb-ft of torque. A 6-speed automatic transmission with steering wheel-mounted paddle shifters manages the turbo 3-cylinder engine, while the electric motor is coupled with a 2-speed automatic transmission. Power is sent to all four wheels via BMW's hybrid sports car all-wheel drive system. Driving Dynamics Control with eDRIVE, ECO PRO, COMFORT and SPORT settings is also included on every 2016 i8. It only takes two hours to fully charge the i8's battery, and with over 23,300 U.S. public charging stations and the option to have a Level 2 charging station installed at home, finding a full charge has never been easier. Can your sports car or hybrid reach 60 mph from a standstill in 4.2 seconds? The 2016 BMW i8 can -- and it looks good doing it, too!
