One lucky driver got to explore the latest in BMW technology with the innovative i8. Whereas popular hybrid and electric cars such as the Toyota Prius overwhelmingly look the part, this new electric BMW i8 looks more like a Ferrari than an environmentalists best friend. Here’s a specification breakdown for this awesome new vehicle:
2015 BMW i8
Engine Power: 357 hp
MPG: Up to 43 City and 76 Highway
Top Speed: 155 mph
o-60 Time: 3.8 seconds
While the $136,650 price tag may be out of reach for the average New Jersey resident, the vehicle does serve as a sign of things to come in the electric car market. After Tesla paved the way for trendier and sportier looking sustainable vehicles, BMW seems to be taking it to the next level. The BMW i8 is an awesome vehicle, that should have Tesla Motors worried when it comes to market share.
