Team BMW is ready to introduce its i8 Concept, a plug –in Hybrid Coupe specially crafted sports vehicle that is perfectly fitted with i3 fully electric hatchback. This sports edition is one of the first versions been manufactures at Bavarian firm’s i sub-category.

This new Sports edition is the result of thorough research and an extension on the already existing concept of 2009 Vision Efficient Dynamics study. Extensive research study paved the way for this new production model, and is likely to be launched in the year 2013. This new sportiest edition can now support a high-performance equipped with 1.5-liter capacity turbocharged three-cylinder gasoline engine (in place of the Vision ED’s diesel unit like its earlier edition) producing 220HP (164kW) and 300 Nm (221 lb.ft) at the back.

The gasoline division moves the rear wheels from end to end with a double clutch transmission, and at the same time the electric motor is used for twin-speed motivation for supporting better speed from the front wheels. Thus this entire system works like a mountain terrain bikes or motors and assist a twin drive mechanism to produce a doubled output of 349 hp and 550 Nm (405.6 lb) of top torque supporting 0 -100 km/h (62mph) to the coupe model while the acceleration time is recorded at 4.6 seconds and reaches a top speed of 250 km/h (155mph)

According to the BMW spokesperson the all new i8 concept is excellent at fuel saving fuel while on the move. The car electric motor is supplied with a large lithium-ion battery that can be easily charged from any household power supply. This will take an hour and 45 minutes to get charged, and then successfully offers a pure electric driving range of up to 35 km (approx. 20 miles).

The concept model is scheduled to launch in the Frankfurt Motor Show.
