The BMW i8 is a plug-in hybrid sports car that's designed for both performance and efficiency. It features an electric drivetrain that provides up to 15 miles of all-electric range as well as a turbocharged three-cylinder gas engine that works with the electric motor to accelerate the i8 from zero to 60 mph in 4.2 seconds, according to BMW. All-wheel drive is standard, and total system output is 357 horsepower and 420 pounds-feet of torque.
Like the BMW i3 city car, the i8 features a carbon-fiber-reinforced plastic body atop an aluminum chassis for the drivetrain. The car's 2+2 arrangement provides seating for four, but the rear seats are small.Side-by-Side Comparison
