The new BMW i8 Roadster, a new BMW i8 Coupe.

Posted on 30. Nov, 2017 by in BMW Canada

  • The sports automobile of a destiny – now accessible in dual physique variants.
    New BMW i8 Roadster and new BMW i8 Coupe are underneath starter’s orders.
    Both plug-in hybrid models underline serve grown BMW eDrive
    technology, enabling longer operation and some-more time in pure-electric
    mode. World premiere of a BMW i8 Roadster during a Los Angeles Auto
    Show in Dec 2017, marketplace launch from May 2018.
  • New BMW i8 Roadster represents an innovative countenance of
    freedom: Open-top motoring in an uncompromisingly sporty two-seater,
    dire a eDrive button enables probably wordless and locally
    emission-free pushing during adult to 120 km/h. Emotionally powerful
    extraneous pattern with an elegantly dynamic, stretched silhouette;
    visually reduce centre of gravity.
  • Unique LifeDrive car pattern and BMW i form language
    carried over into a enthralling roadster concept. Model-specific
    physique strengthening elements and gullwing doors underline a signature
    lightweight construction of BMW i models; windscreen support also made
    from carbon-fibre-reinforced cosmetic (CFRP). Inherent weight penalty
    of a new BMW i8 Roadster over a new BMW i8 Coupe singular to
    approximately 60 kilograms.
  • High-quality soft-top covers a vast area and has a unique
    mechanism. All-electric roof opens and closes really sensitively – during the
    hold of a symbol – in 15 seconds and while travelling during adult to
    50 km/h. Soft-top stows divided in a space-saving perpendicular
    position, formulating around 100 litres of additional storage space
    behind a seats.
  • Plug-in hybrid expostulate complement with rigorously optimised BMW eDrive
    technology. Cell ability of a lithium-ion high-voltage battery up
    from 20 to 34 Ah, sum appetite ability adult from 7.1 to 11.6 kWh.
    Electric engine with max. outlay lifted by 9 kW/12 hp to
    105 kW/143 hp. Enhanced dynamics and considerably increasing operation for
    locally emission-free driving. Driving with a electric engine alone
    is probable during adult to 105 km/h (previously 70 km/h). Pressing the
    eDrive symbol pushes a pure-electric pushing threshold adult to
    120 km/h. Electric range: 53 kilometres/33 miles* (BMW i8 Roadster),
    55 kilometres/34 miles* (BMW i8 Coupe).
  • Three-cylinder petrol engine has an unvaried outlay of
    170 kW/231 hp. Engine acoustics and emissions optimised with
    integrated particulate filter. Combined petrol consumption: 2.1
    l/100 km * (BMW i8 Roadster), 1.9 l/100 km* (BMW i8 Coupe), CO2
    emissions from petrol: 46 g/km* (BMW i8 Roadster), 42 g/km* (BMW i8 Coupe).
  • New BMW i8 Roadster has model-specific tuning for a springs,
    damping and Dynamic Stability Control. Both models come as standard
    with Dynamic Damper Control.
  • New BMW i8 Roadster propitious as customary with disdainful 20-inch
    light-alloy wheels in double-spoke design. Each circle weighs approx.
    one kilogram reduction than a lightest edge formerly available.
  • New E-Copper lead and Donington Grey lead extraneous paint
    finishes for a BMW i8 Roadster and BMW i8 Coupe. Carpo interior
    pattern is customary on both models, for a BMW i8 Roadster
    exclusively in Ivory White/Black and for a BMW i8 Coupe in Ivory
    White. New optional Accaro interior trim in Amido/E-Copper.
    Model-specific “Roadster”/“Coupe” lettering on a C-pillars.
  • Standard selection for both models comprises a Navigation
    complement Professional, BMW Display Key, Driving Assistant incl.
    Surround View, and a mode 2 charging cable. Tile-based menu design
    in Control Display, with live mode. Options embody BMW Head‑Up
    Display with model-specific content, non-dazzling BMW Laserlight
    with BMW Selective Beam, and acoustic walking warning.
  • ConnectedDrive Services come as standard. BMW Connected personal
    mobility partner enables endless connectivity between a car
    and a customer’s digital lifestyle. New digital services include
    intelligent track formulation (complete with refuelling stops during a
    charging hire or stuffing station), pity of a stream trip
    standing and rarely personalised in-car displays.

All total relating to performance, consumption, emissions and range
are provisional.

 

*The fuel consumption, CO2 emissions, energy expenditure and operating
operation total were dynamic according to a European Regulation
(EC) 715/2007 in a chronicle applicable. The total impute to a
car with simple pattern in Germany and a operation shown
considers a opposite sizes of a comparison wheels/tyres and the
comparison apparatus of discretionary equipment.

The values are already formed on a new WLTP exam cycle and are
translated behind into NEDC-equivalent values in sequence to ensure
comparability between a vehicles. [With honour to these vehicles,
for vehicle-related taxes or other duties formed (at slightest inter alia)
on CO2 emissions, a CO2 values might differ from a values stated
here (depending on inhabitant legislation).]

 

The CO2 potency specifications are dynamic according to
Directive 1999/94/EC and a latest chronicle of a Pkw-EnVKV, and
formed (for classification) on a fuel expenditure and CO2 values as
per a NEDC cycle.

Further information on central fuel expenditure total and specific
CO2 glimmer values of new newcomer cars is enclosed in a following
guideline: ‘Leitfaden über basement Kraftstoffverbrauch, die CO2-Emissionen
und basement Stromverbrauch neuer Personenkraftwagen’ (Guideline for fuel
consumption, CO2 emissions and electric energy expenditure of new
newcomer cars), that can be performed giveaway of assign from all
dealerships and during https://www.dat.de/en/offers/publications/guideline-for-fuel-consumption.html.
