THE POWER OF PROGRESS.
Progress accepts no compromise. Progress explores the limits of
possibility – and exceeds them. The result, in this case, is a vision
of the future that can be seen today in the shape of the BMW i8. This
is a thoroughbred sports car that delivers a truly outstanding driving
experience. And yet, at the same time, its BMW EfficientDynamics
technology, with BMW eDrive and the BMW EfficientLightweight
concept, means that it also offers fuel economy that can rival that of
a small car. Experience one of the most progressive sports cars of its
time. The BMW i8.

BMW EFFICIENT LIGHTWEIGHT VEHICLE CONCEPT.
When innovation is your guiding principle, unprecedented creativity is inevitable. The
BMW EfficientLightweight concept applied to the BMW i8 was conceived from the very
beginning to meet the demands of a hybrid sports car. Its innovative LifeDrive architecture
comprises two parts, each precisely tailored to fit their respective requirements. The
aluminium body – or Drive module – contains the lithium-ion high-voltage battery and all
the other drivetrain components front and rear. In between these is the passenger cell, or
Life module. This is built in high-strength carbon (CFRP), a material with ideal properties
for the innovative vehicles from BMW i: extreme stability, ultra-light weight and a degree of
flexibility that allows an unprecedented degree of design freedom. The result is a vehicle
that delivers unique driving pleasure coupled with exceptional economy.
POWERFUL AND EFFICIENT – BMW eDRIVE.
Thinking ahead means getting ahead – and also cutting fuel consumption. An electric motor,
a lithium-ion high-voltage battery and an advanced energy management system make up
the innovative BMW eDrive technology package. The 96kW (131hp) electric motor at the
front axle delivers its peak torque of 250Nm with just a light touch of the accelerator. Together
with the 1.5-litre, three-cylinder petrol engine with BMW TwinPower Turbo technology and
170kW (231hp) at the rear axle, the BMW i8 accelerates from 0 to 100km/h in just 4.4 seconds.
Combined fuel economy of only 2.1 litres per 100km1 is also possible. That’s what happens
when the best of two powerful drive systems join forces to create an innovative plug-in hybrid –
and a driving experience never before experienced in this form.

BREATHTAKING DRIVING DYNAMICS.
Perfect balance is right here, waiting to be discovered – and experienced.
The BMW i8 is ideally balanced, with the axle load split 50:50 front to rear.
A particularly low centre of gravity increases agility even further. Outside
town, the BMW i8 can unleash its full power, with four-wheel drive propelling
it rapidly to 250km/h and, depending on driving style, within a range of
around 600km1, 2. The BMW i8 switches to all-electric drive at the touch
of a button for a top speed of 120km/h – silently and with zero emissions3.
This is no ordinary car, as the extraordinary driving experience proves.
AERODYNAMIC AESTHETICS.
To leave the wind behind, simply relinquish all resistance. The fluid lines and flat
silhouette of the BMW i8 create a fascinately dynamic impression, even at a standstill.
Everything about this car is designed for aerodynamic perfection, paired with the
highest aesthetic standards. Witness the almost closed kidney grille, the sweeping
lines of the singularly dynamic exterior design and the handle-free “scissor” doors.
There are also strongly expressive LED headlights with extended features such as
special light distribution for motorway driving. These are additionally available, on
request, with laser lighting. This technology, developed first for the BMW i8, gives
particularly bright, white light and increased range for remarkably effective road
illumination. At the same time, laser lighting consumes only a fraction of the energy
used by conventional headlights. And even a cursory glance reveals a compelling
vision of the future – today.

EXCEPTIONAL MATERIALS.
When innovation is a core principle, it can be found everywhere you look. With
the BMW i, this is apparent from a casual glance at the distinctive scissor doors
through to scrutiny of even the smallest detail. Indeed, each individual piece
of material used is far ahead of its time. The carbon fibre reinforced plastic of
the passenger cell, for instance, has superb safety properties and, weighing
about  per cent less than steel, also makes the BMW i exceptionally efficient.
The leather in the car is tanned with olive leaf extract, combining sustainability
with an exquisite feel that renders the high quality immediately tangible. Thus,
the progressive character of the BMW i emerges anew on every drive and
engages all the senses.
INNOVATIVE INTERIOR.
An exterior designed to perfection is a compelling interior in every way. The
inside of the BMW i takes its cue from the fluid, dynamic exterior with a reprise
of the layered surfaces that underpin the unique style of this car. Every feature
in the cockpit is systematically focused on the driver, allowing total immersion
in the intensely rewarding experience behind the wheel. The fully digital, threedimensional Control Display, for example, presents everything the driver needs
to know – such as speed, range, charge status and route – in high-resolution
clarity. At the same time, ConnectedDrive Services ensure flawless connectivity
with the outside world at all times – demonstrating, yet again, how the BMW i
is venturing into new and uncharted technological territory.

A VISION BECOMES A REALITY.
THE BMW VISION EFFICIENT DYNAMICS CONCEPT FIRST WHIPPED UP
A STORM OF EXCITEMENT AT THE IAA IN 2009 – JUST FOUR YEARS LATER,
THAT CONCEPT BECAME A REALITY IN THE FORM OF THE BMW i8.
The BMW Vision EfficientDynamics concept brought the future
closer – much closer. It demonstrated that it was possible to combine the
emotional excitement of a sports car with the consumption and emissions
of a compact car. And a holistic approach to development showed that this
vision could soon become a reality. BMW EfficientDynamics technologies –
such as Active Hybrid, lightweight construction, aerodynamics and
Intelligent Energy Management – enabled an eye-catching level of dynamic
efficiency. As early as 2009, the close-to-production concept car was able
to achieve outstanding emissions of 99g/km of CO2 and combined fuel
economy of just 3.76 litres per 100km. As a BMW full hybrid with plug-in
technology, the BMW Vision EfficientDynamics was powered by a
BMW EFFICIENTDYNAMICS.
LESS EMISSIONS. MORE DRIVING PLEASURE.
3.0-cylinder CommonRail turbodiesel, supported by an electric motor
at the front axle. This allowed the concept to achieve unique dynamic
qualities otherwise found only in high-performance cars. The 98 highly
efficient lithium polymer batteries were charged using Brake Energy
Regeneration and were sited in the transmission tunnel, just as they are
in the BMW i8, in pursuit of the best possible centre of gravity. Further
technical highlights of the concept involved active aerodynamics as a
further development of automatic air flap control, a thermo-electrical
generator that turns engine heat into electrical energy and forward-looking
energy management. Many of these ground-breaking innovations can
be seen today – in the BMW i8.
The distinctive scissor doors were already a visual highlight in the
BMW Vision EfficientDynamics concept vehicle.
The 2+2-seater study of 2009 previewed today’s advanced tapered design,
which is aerodynamically based on a droplet of water.
The concept car combined innovation with highly emotional design in
a way that was far ahead of its time. It signalled the future, the sports car
of tomorrow – the BMW i8. At just 1.24 metres in height, the 2+2-seater
embodies the most efficient aerodynamics. The layering design, in
modified form on the BMW i8, connects the lines of the interior and
exterior and defines a previously unseen design language. The form
follows function principle is evident, down to the smallest detail, with
sustainable materials and unique aesthetics. The follow-up study was
shown as the BMW i8 Concept and BMW i8 Spyder Concept in 2011,
which gave a definitive insight into the impending series-production
model. So the plan to turn a vision into production car reality by the start
of 2014 had been kept. And the BMW i8 is the living proof.

Use the right materials in the right places. Set them out according to
function and always to the highest level of efficiency. And, of course,
optimise the dynamics. This is the BMW EfficientLightweight vehicle
concept, a central part of the BMW EfficientDynamics strategy. For the
BMW i8, though, BMW has gone a step further with the architecture and
choice of material.
Witness the LifeDrive architecture. This comprises two independent,
but perfectly complementary, units. The passenger cell, also described as
the Life module, is true to the BMW EfficientLightweight construction
principle in that it is made of carbon-fibre reinforced plastic – also called
CFRP or simply carbon. The use of this extremely lightweight and highstrength material means that the vehicle weighs only 1,485kg, despite
the weight of the lithium-ion high-voltage battery.
Turbo petrol engine). The lithium-ion high-voltage battery is positioned in
what’s known as the energy tunnel sited between the two drive systems.
The front and rear systems, the passenger cell and the lithium-ion highvoltage battery form a functional, cohesive unit. This is supported by
intelligent lightweight construction and innovative use of materials that
improve driving dynamics while also having a positive influence on range
and consumption.
ACCELERATION 0–100KM/H
Lithium-ion high-voltage battery
Weight optimisation in the BMW i8 has been achieved with innovative
use of materials and outstanding solutions for mass reduction. There are
many examples, but here are just two. The structure of the scissor doors,
made with a CFRP inner structure and a thermoplastic outer skin, leads to
a weight saving of 50 per cent compared with a conventional construction.
The partitioning screen between the passenger and luggage compartment
is in a special hardened glass, which, along with optimum acoustic
properties, also offers a weight reduction of about 50 per cent compared

A facility was built specifically for the manufacture of carbon fibre in Moses
Lake, Washington state, USA. The high-tech material has been in production
here since 2011. The current energy demands for making the carbon fibre
are met entirely by renewables generated by hydropower. The rolls with
their so-called rovings [02] – the name of the thread made from around
50,000 of the 0.007mm-thick carbon fibres [01] – are delivered to Germany
by ship. In Wackersdorf, Bavaria, the threads are processed into textile
mats [04], the raw material for the production of the CFRP parts. The
pressing plants in Landshut and Leipzig manufacture all of the CFRP
components from the delivered carbon fibre mats while the final assembly
and quality assurance [03] takes place in Leipzig.
CARBON FIBRE REINFORCED PLASTIC (CFRP) REVOLUTIONISES
LIGHTWEIGHT CONSTRUCTION.
Innovative in every detail. Thanks to BMW EfficientDynamics research,
the BMW engineers were able to balance out the extra weight of the
lithium-ion high-voltage battery with extensive use of aluminium and
carbon components.
This can be seen, in particular, in the use of the innovative material carbon.
Despite its lightness, carbon ensures the enormous strength, stability and
therefore safety of the passenger compartment (Life module). Its use is
also immediately noticeable in the exceptional handling, outstanding
roadholding and eager acceleration of the BMW i8.
BMW EFFICIENTDYNAMICS.
LESS EMISSIONS. MORE DRIVING PLEASURE.
For a long time, the use of carbon for a passenger compartment was
effectively impossible because it had to be built by hand, so the costs
were simply too high. Now, however, BMW i has redefined automotive
manufacturing by independently developing the first production version.
The weight saving from using carbon instead of steel is to up to 50 per
cent. Compared with aluminium, it’s up to 30 per cent.
But carbon components don’t just revolutionise lightweight construction.
They also allow new forms in car design because the carbon-fibre
reinforced polymers are almost as flexible as textiles. So while the carbon
body of the BMW i8 exemplifies good use of space, it also has an
optimised design, as the outstanding drag coefficient (Cd) of 0.26 proves.

THE BEST OF BOTH WORLDS.
THANKS TO BMW EFFICIENT DYNAMICS WITH eDRIVE, THE BMW i PLUG-IN HYBRID
SPORTS CAR DELIVERS EXCEPTIONAL DYNAMIC ABILITY AS WELL AS EFFICIENCY:
IN EITHER PURELY ELECTRIC FORM OR THROUGH A COMBINATION OF THE ELECTRIC
MOTOR AND THE BMW TWIN POWER TURBO PETROL ENGINE.
A sports car, a plug-in hybrid – designed in a single,
no-compromise whole. BMW eDrive combines a weight-optimised
electric motor at the front with a petrol engine at the rear. The benefits of
both power sources are harnessed by an Intelligent Energy Management
system to achieve maximum efficiency. At the same time, the BMW i
delivers outstanding driving dynamics as a result of its bespoke LifeDrive
architecture and the fine-tuning of all the car’s components. No vehicle
has ever embodied the philosophy of BMW EfficientDynamics more
convincingly than the BMW i.
The electric drive system, adapted for the hybrid concept, offers peak
output of kW (hp) and maximum torque of Nm supplied to the
front axle. A highly developed BMW TwinPower Turbo three-cylinder
petrol engine with kW (hp) and peak torque of Nm transmits
its power via a specially modified six-speed Steptronic transmission
Electric motor
directly to the rear axle. The electric motor at the front axle provides
the petrol engine with rapid support in the form of a boost function –
and, notably, without additional fuel consumption. This is particularly
useful when you want spontaneous, rapid acceleration, such as when
overtaking. An electric generator, positioned close to the BMW TwinPower
Turbo three-cylinder petrol engine, supplies the lithium-ion high-voltage
battery with energy in various driving situations, so compelling performance
is on tap whenever it’s needed.
The BMW i offers a unique driving experience because Intelligent
Energy Management and the driving modes have been tuned perfectly.
The car always starts in COMFORT mode, with a balance between
sporty and efficient driving styles. Thus configured, electric range is up
to km, with a maximum speed of km/h. Press a button to activate

A SHORT CHARGE TIME FOR ENDLESS,
ELECTRIFYING DRIVING ENJOYMENT.
WITH THE ELECTRIC MOTOR AT THE FRONT AXLE AND THE PETROL ENGINE AT
THE REAR, THE BMW i8 OPTIMALLY COMBINES THE DYNAMIC BENEFITS OF BOTH
FRONT- AND ALL-WHEEL DRIVE.
All-wheel drive for full traction. The BMW i8 can deploy its reserves
of power through all four wheels for added traction and control. It uses
the high-torque output of the electric motor at the front axle and the
performance of the petrol engine at the rear axle, which arrives via the
six-speed Steptronic transmission. This arrangement provides the
optimum drive configuration in any given situation.
The BMW i8 can also run on pure electric power. However, there are
advantages in the combination of both drives complementing each other
perfectly and playing to their strengths. When you are entering a corner,
Rear-wheel drive. The BMW TwinPower
Turbo petrol engine drives the rear axle.
for instance, the ratio of torque between the front and rear wheels can
be altered to give a stronger rearward bias, which increases precision as
you turn in. Also, on wet and dry roads, the driver has maximum traction
available across all four wheels when accelerating and this results in even
greater stability right up to the limit. In winter, too, the driver benefits from
the axles being powered independently because the four intelligently
driven wheels increase traction and the safety on icy roads. It all makes
acceleration in the BMW i8 a very dynamic experience – and over a wide
range of speeds.
Front-wheel drive plus rear-wheel
drive = intelligent all-wheel
drive.
Innovative charging solutions from BMW 360° ELECTRIC.
Electromobility made easy. The petrol engine along with Intelligent
Energy Management charge the high-voltage lithium-ion battery1
via a generator during the drive. It is also supplied with power from
Brake Energy Regeneration. Additionally, innovative products and
services from BMW 360º ELECTRIC offer a wealth of possibilities
for charging your BMW i8.
Charge up at home. The BMW i8 can be charged from any conventional
230-volt household socket using the standard cable supplied. The process
takes around 2.5 hours2. There is also the BMW i Wallbox which offers
a tailor-made solution for charging the battery at home safely, simply
and very quickly. Charging progress can be monitored on the vehicle’s
instrument panel and also via the BMW Remote app on a smartphone.
The BMW i Wallbox Pro, with its unique convenience features, is another
option. This offers a user-friendly seven-inch colour touch-screen which
indicates charging status. It also allows customers to manage their own
load management settings as well as home-generated energy use.

it also supplies information from the driver assistance systems – for
example, Speed Limit Info including the no-overtaking indicator, Check
Control messages plus phone and entertainment lists. The driver registers
information from the Head-Up Display up to  per cent faster than when
looking at the instrument display or the Control Display. This significantly
increases safety – and driving pleasure.
With the optional Driving Assistant package for the BMW i, including the

The Driving Assistant includes Speed Limit Info plus the no-overtaking

HOLISTIC THINKING.
WITH SUSTAINABILITY IN MIND.
THE BMW i IS SUSTAINABLE, FROM DEVELOPMENT AND PRODUCTION,
THROUGH TO USE AND RECYCLING.
The BMW i and the BMW i are produced in Leipzig using sustainably generated energy.
Thought through, to the smallest detail. The BMW i
demonstrates very clearly how sustainability is a central driving force
for BMW i. Measurable objectives were agreed in the early phases of
the development process and determined and documented during
the car’s manufacture – from the production of raw materials through
to manufacturing, use and recycling.
In the pursuit of sustainability, the carbon fibre manufacturing facility in
Moses Lake (USA) operates entirely on renewable energy sourced from
one of the largest hydro-electric plants in the world. Serving a similar goal,
four impressive wind turbines were recently built at the BMW Leipzig site.
Furthermore, the use of green electricity for charging the car’s lithium-ion
high-voltage battery reduces CO emissions even further. Finally, thought
has also gone into how the lithium-ion high-voltage battery can be recycled
at the end of its service life. It could, for example, be used as a temporary
energy store for solar and wind systems.

A SPORTY APPEARANCE
WITH A LASTING EFFECT.
The BMW i – like it was crafted from a single cast.
The front, side, rear and roof overlap each other with fluid lines that
create a distinctive, sculptural form. Further individuality is signalled by
the intriguing scissor doors and the sporting ability promised by the car’s
proportions. Viewed from the front, the BMW i is very low and wide,
a manifestation of its agility and aerodynamic efficiency. Membership of
the BMW i family is instantly obvious from the very flat radiator grille,
outlined in blue and almost closed, and the BMW i Blue highlights.
The striking U-shaped LED headlights with extended features also
create a distinctive, BMW i look. At its leading edge, the bonnet is lower
than the wheel-arches, adding to the impression of sporting ability in
its purest form.
The “black belt”, a band in high-gloss black, emerges from a V shape on
the bonnet and runs through to the rear with its U-formed LED lights. It’s
an impressive visual conclusion.
The long lines, flat silhouette and strong wedge profile give the BMW i
the recognisable outline of a sports car. They exude a strong, forward-
thrusting dynamic, even at standstill, aided by the “stream flow”.
A characteristic of BMW i vehicles, the stream flow describes the
contours of the side windows and how they influence the path
of passing air. Finally, the -inch light alloy wheels even further
underscore the highly dynamic character of the BMW i.

SPORTY AND LIGHT:
THE NESO INTERIOR.
The BMW i8 Neso interior represents the future of sporting mobility
in its purest form. The interior conveys a feel of uncluttered intelligence
enhanced by the use of light-hued materials. There are functional textile
accents in the doors and side trim panels, as well as light Spheric leather
and clear material contrasts. They all serve to highlight the car’s visionary
02
and sustainable concept and give it a living character. The bright Carum
Grey leather is offset with black surfaces, thus creating a contemporary,
open atmosphere. Additionally, the headliner is available in Anthracite
upon request.

THE CARPO AMIDO INTERIOR.
The BMW i8 Carpo Amido interior (optional) has a classically dark
feel but with a contemporary interpretation in Anthracite that conveys
pure innovation and spirit. There’s particular focus on the light Spheric
leather of the seats, a finish that exudes high-quality. The ideal colour
match is found in the Anthracite-black natural leather exclusively on the
dashboard, door panels and side trim. The Amido leather colour combines
with the black leather surfaces in the background to create a modern,
sporty character. The surfaces play with subtle colour contrasts and their
shapes are emphasised by discreet accents in the decorative stitching.
It all conveys the impression of hand craftsmanship. The BMW i8 Carpo
Amido interior is rounded off by a leather Sport steering wheel with
accents in pearlescent chrome and Satin Silver as well as the high-quality
painted Amido metallic interior surfaces on the dashboard, centre console
and doors. Headliner in Anthracite is available on request.

the innovative combinations of select materials. These include exclusive
features such as the ceramic-finished gear lever and the exceptionally

well made floor mats. One particular high point is the laser-etched “i8” on
the doorsill finishers in Amido metallic. Targeted accents in BMW i Blue,
including the double-stitching and, optionally, on the belt straps, further
enhance the impression of handcrafted attention to detail. The instrument
panel, centre console and doors with surfaces painted in Amido metallic

“Next Premium” concept – as seen with the naturally tanned leather,
exclusively in Dalbergia Brown with textile accents. This combines
harmoniously with the Carum Grey and targeted BMW i Blue accents

light-dark contrasts in the doors, side trim panels and dashboard create

colouring of the accents around the doorsills, the lining of the radiator
grille and at the rear vary according to the colour of the body. For the Ionic

and to reduce rolling resistence, they have a faired appearance and wear
relatively narrow tyres. At the same time, the tyres are as wide as is
needed to transfer all of the plug-in hybrid sports car’s performance to
the road. The large wheel diameter helps to maximise the tyre contact
area, too. The wheels are particularly lightweight for their size and suit the
