BMW i8 Convertible

BMW Teases i8 Convertible

Summer 2017 is off to an electric start, and BMW is adding to the buzz with a quick preview of the third i-Series model. A convertible i8 is the next logical step for the brand, and it looks just as aerodynamic as the coupe. BMW’s first ever plug-in hybrid sports car, the i8 packs a 7.5 kWh battery along with a 1.5-liter turbo three cylinder to keep it charged. At full power, it delivers 357 hp and 420 lb-ft of torque, which makes for an exciting ride. That’s because the BMW i8 only weighs 3,455 lbs. With the ability to cruise 15 miles on battery alone, it makes for a good mix of city car & wild styling.

A full convertible roof would require an extensive redesign of the chassis, so it looks like the i8 Roadster will arrive with a Targa top. The best of both worlds, they offer open-air motoring with the strength and safety of a coupe. This might coincide with the release of a revised i8 coupe with more power, but that is speculation at this point. The i3 and i8 represent the future of hybrid design, and they are worthy of a drive if you haven’t experienced them. Our dealers will have more info on the new i8, so stay with us for all your BMW news.
