THE NEW BMW I8 ROADSTER. Created to Excel. The new BMW i8 Roadster is a true performer, marrying the heart and looks of a sports car with the enhanced efficiency of the latest plug-in drive technology.
I8 ROADSTER. With its dynamic looks and focus on performance, the BMW i8 raises the bar for plug-in hybrid motoring. Never before has responsible driving been this fun. Thanks to the intelligent energy management system balancing the interactions between both the lithium-ion battery and combustion engine, this is a car that is focused on maximum fun while keeping emissions to a minimum.
TECHNOLOGY Inside, you’ll benefit from a host of comfort features including climate control, electrically adjustable seats and a DAB radio. You’ll also have the option of selecting Heads-up Display, which puts all the information you need right in front of you, so there’s no need to take your eyes off the road. And if you need to check your battery charge from afar, simply log into the iRemote smartphone app.
PERFORMANCE. Building on the prowess of the BMW i8 coupe, the Roadster's electric motor produces 141bhp and has a cell capacity of 34Ah, which increases its all-electric range to 33 miles. Power is delivered via a two-speed automatic gearbox, which ensures dynamic acceleration and excellent flexibility. Take to the city in eDrive Eco mode and you’ll find progress refined and nippy, while at high speed, the combined strengths of the motor and petrol engine in Hybrid Sport Mode makes for smooth, relaxed cruising. Steering is responsive; while the hybrid-specific all-wheel drive ensures the i8 Roadster corners confidently and benefits from maximum traction even in slippery conditions. With a 0-62mph acceleration time of just 4.6 seconds too, this model is every inch the consummate sports car.
Exterior. Aggressive looks and an aerodynamic profile characterise the BMW i8 Roadster. Its sleek lines and low stance are complemented by a retractable soft-top roof, which can open in 16 seconds and at speeds of up to 31mph. The rear window acts as a window deflector, operating independently of the roof and there are new frameless, scissor-opening doors, which give the car a futuristic look. Add to all this, the striking paint colour and bold 20-inch alloy wheels, you have a car that won’t fail to get noticed.
Interior. The BMW i8 Roadster’s interior is just as eye-catching, with a range of colour and fabric combinations on offer, and optional new trims on the doors and steering wheel. Electrically-adjustable sports seats ensure getting comfy is easy, while uprated dashboard design lends greater clarity to key information. You’ll also have the choice between touch control or a rotary dial to access the iDrive system. The Coupe’s four-seat configuration has been swapped for a two-seat arrangement in the Roadster, ensuring both you and your passenger enjoy plenty of legroom as well as 160 litres of luggage space.
SAFETY A Sports car like the i8 Roadster needs to be supported by the very latest in safety equipment. As such a number of assistance systems are in place to both protect you and enhance your experience. Dynamic Traction Control, for example, reduces wheel spin and aids grip in all conditions, while a rigid carbon fibre structure and in-cabin airbags provide protection on the event of an impact. In addition, features such as cruise control and parking sensors make every-day driving and manoeuvers that bit simpler, reducing the risk of careless errors. There’s also BMW xDrive, the all-wheel-drive system that delivers added stability when you’re tackling rough terrain and inclement conditions.
