The BMW concept i8 and fascinating approach behind seat machine the vision of a sustainable sporting sense of modern life. His innovative concept hybrid combines the electric transmission system from BMW concept i3-to the front with a combustion engine in high cylinder axle equipped changed 164 produce kW (220 HP) / 300 N·m (221 lb-ft) at the back. Engine performance in the BMW concept i8 is a unit of the full capacity of the car on his own power can, if necessary. Working together, but allow two units offer systems of their respective talents full tones, the performance of a sports car, but the fuel consumption of a car.
Acceleration from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in less than five seconds it combined with fuel economy in the European cycle of less than three litres per 100 km (approx. 94 mpg IMP) and consumption of fuel for average client of between five and seven liters per 100 km (56.5 mpg IMP 40.4) If you currently a comparable performance are driven by the capacity of each vehicle from hard-drive prices by internal combustion engine. Thanks to the battery of large lithium-ion, the inner strength, the BMW concept i8 accused maximum 35 kilometres (20 km) can be in electrical energy solo travellers. Therefore be a large part of daily excursions with 0 (zero) added. Electric Auto mode, you can specify that centrally access instead level emissions areas of the cities with the limitations of gasoline or diesel vehicles. Ranking the effectiveness of the i8-concept is even more for their ability to generate electricity in both axes. The electric motor in the front wins the maximum energy every time, when braking, had associated with you controller during a high voltage magneto combustion engine battery charging, if necessary. He added that 2 + 2 seater offer enough room for four people, making it a high degree of suitability for everyday use.
Emotional design of BMW i8 concept ensures that his qualities are each. The dynamic conditions give BMW concept i8 the appearance of rising ahead, before it is even a wheel and Visual design of its extraordinary performance. The advanced concept behind doors, up sport ability of the car, and access to front and rear seats rotate open positions at the same time stresses the amounts.”
A number of air intakes allow air to flow through and around the vehicle for optimum performance ensure extremely low drag. Add also Visual focus of this advanced aerodynamics. Air flow plays a very important role in the back of the vehicle. Tomas behind the cabin and rear even provide a flow of air through the engine compartment, cooling, while in the rear diffuser and the air flow around the rear wheels to make sure that the car is extremely efficient at height and strength in both axes.
The architecture of the BMW concept is adapted to the nature of the sports car of the vehicle LifeDrive i8 carefully and thus excellent performance and outstanding driving dynamics. This gives the car a low centre of gravity and dynamic advantages, to come with him. The placement of the engine, electrical and the module on their respective axes and space-saving filing and balanced for all components of the result in an optimal distribution of the weight of 50: 50.
The weight of each component in the BMW concept i8 is in minimized in detail, so that the peso further the system of electrical transmission and battery should be terminated. BMW concept i8 is therefore the perfect setting for this concept of the very special on the statistical unit. Passengers will find-style sports-in an extremely low and closed position within the module-life, the company was built (mounted on the unity module).
The sporty character of the BMW concept i8 still inside. Driver-oriented environment of the vehicle from BMW Group to Yes, the BMW concept i8 appears the driver completely unique driving experience. Position of the driver is aimed directly at the person behind the wheel and optimum access to information and controls. Three-dimensional displays are clear and relevant information for the if-flash.
