2014 BMW i8: the German automaker vision of a high performance hybrid. This is what the future looks like. We can get behind a 3.0-liter inline-6 gasoline engine the form where the BMW traditionally excels joined with an electric motor for stop-start fuel efficiency, especially when both devices are combining to make 349 horsepower and 406 pound-feet of torque. 2014 i8 will be able to overturn from zero to 60 mph in 4.6 seconds retrieving 78 mpg, so that the company claims.
It will also be able to motor vehicle up to 22 miles solely on electricity. Sounds like a pretty good future for us. Lightweight design helps to bring such lofty performance within reach, in particular an aluminium chassis and extensive use of carbon-fibre-reinforced bars within the passenger cabin. If the production of i8 follows the concept, its wheelbase being only slightly longer than a BMW M3 sedan, but it will be 8 inches shorter overall and also 3 inches wider. It must also be weighed 650 pounds less than M3.
