BMW i8 Spyder Hybrid leaves filter facts and figures on the future. The production version of the hybrid supercar would be finally a little less powerful than the concept.
Hybrid, electrifying and downsizing high-end, the process is running. Bend to ambient discipline leading to a (even symbolic) decrease in consumption is not necessarily bad in itself, obviously. But the mutation is not always happy. There, it will take time to adapt to small 3 cylinder 1.5 liter turbo of the future BMW technology showcase.
BMW i8 concept, seen at the last Frankfurt Auto Show, will enter into production for 2014 for recall. Expect a pleasure to drive another type. Ambitious, BMW intends to sell 10,000 units per year, a rate at more than $132,490.
Today, the final figures are to be relayed by our colleagues from Car magazine. Confirmed but realistic, they announce the BMW i8 slightly more powerful but less powerful than what the concept was forecast.
Thus, the thermal block would develop 226 ch (rear train), associated with the electric motor of 172 ch (nose). A power than 40 HP figures announced by BMW, cumulative 398 HP and a maximum torque of 500 Nm. Performance would not higher, since the 0 to 100 km/h would be 4.9 s, 3/10 more than the concept. Nevertheless, these values are flattering to the first hybrid sport of “great” series. Weight lose 30 kg, down to 1450 kg.
To verify in practice, as the 2.7 l / 100 km brandis as argument shock. On the autonomy, BMW table 32 km in all-electric. Relatively low, in the light of the 6 hours of support necessary. The rest of the time, it will just small block “3 legs”. I say “Pleasure of a new kind.”
