BMW has published the first commercial video for their upcoming electric sporty model, the i8 which will premiere towards the end of 2013 and will enter the market in 2014.
The BMW i8 will extract power from a 1.5-litre three-cylinder turbo diesel unit backed by two electric motors, and according to preliminary figures that surfaced the web in February, the car will be rated at 356 horsepower and 800 Nm of torque.
What is also impressive is the fact that the BMW i8 is able to cover 100 Km on just 3.8 litres of fuel while the 0 to 100 Km/h acceleration is completed in 4.8 seconds.
The i8 will be built in Leipzig and is part of BMW’s latest 400 million euro investment in new facilities.
