2014 Bmw I8

New and Used Cars
As far as internal combustion goes, there are only three cylinders with a displacement of 1.5 liters. They’re force-fed by a wee turbocharger to help provide the wing-door sports car’s forward propulsion to the tune of 228 horsepower. There’s 8 hp of assist from a little helper motor/generator/starter hanging off the side of the engine to make up for the times when the turbo isn’t producing full boost. There’s also a big electric motor up front good for 129 hp to drive the front wheels. The front and rear wheels are not mechanically connected, so it’s up to clever programming to combine the front end’s two-speed transmission to the rear’s six-speed automatic. Combined, the two ends churn out 357 peak hp. As for torque, that’s always tricky to calculate in hybrids. BMW says peak is 420 lb-ft. Which is wrong, as the gas engine, the same engine in the new

The 2014 i8 comes nearly fully-loaded from the get-go with standard features like navigation, leather-wrapped interior panels and upholstery, high-efficiency LED headlights, a fully digital instrument cluster, rain-sensing windshield wipers, front and rear parking sensors, and adaptive cruise control that maintains a preset distance behind the vehicle ahead. Safety features consist of six airbags, BMW Assist with 24/7 emergency services, and a carbon-fiber-reinforced plastic passenger cell.
The 2014 i8 takes the current BMW design aesthetic and adds a subtle dose of modernism by way of reusable materials, blue accents and clear contrasts. The front seats, while comfortable, don't offer a great deal of adjustability due to weight concerns. Out back, the two rear seats are habitable for small children only. The rear cargo area is equally tight, offering less than half the trunk space of a

User-friendly BMW ConnectedDrive and 360 ELECTRIC services keep the driver connected to all aspects of road conditions, media and vehicle performance levels. Through an integrated SIM card, mobile services such as concierge and accident reporting is also possible. All of this is centrally located on vivid displays within the cabin. The fully digital display will show speed and rpm readouts when in Sport mode and a “power meter” in Eco Pro mode. The navigation system then connects to the drivetrain management system to ensure route efficiency and battery longevity if the user were driving in full electric mode, for example. A rearview camera and the Surround View system to PDC sensors along with two cameras in the wing mirrors collect outside data on the fly. That data is then translated to the Control Display from a bird’s eye perspective of the car. If that isn’t enough, a pair of cameras mounted up front helps the Side View system sport cross-traffic early.
Visually, the 2014 BMW i8 looks as if it came out of a science fiction film. Incorporating performance with environmentally friendly makeup and high-technology leaves us excited to test this trendsetter on the road. The era of capable hybrid vehicles is here and there is no denying their appeal, especially after seeing releases like this from the BMW Group.
2014 BMW i8 Coupe Specs, Pricing and Release Date Announced - European Car
The lithium-ion battery pack (liquid-cooled), combustion engine, electric motor, power electronics, chassis components, and structural components all fall within the Drive module. Helping improve performance and stability, the i8 has a low center of gravity of under 18in - lower than any other current BMW model - combined with near 50:50 weight distribution.
, the latest i8 is broken into two main components: the Life module passenger cell and Drive module. The total curb weight is a claimed 3285 lb, which helps the vehicle boast a 94mpg while still reaching 0-62mph in a quick 4.4sec, as claimed by the BMW Group.
Behind the bodywork and aluminum frame is both a BMW TwinPower in-line three-cylinder combustion engine that powers the rear wheels and a hybrid synchronous motor that powers the front wheels. The all-wheel drive hybrid claims a top speed of 155mph (expect a later unrestricted M variant). Even more impressive is the 94mpg and CO2 rating of 59 g/km.
Along with torque distribution designed to optimize efficiency is a five-mode Driving Experience Control switch. Comfort mode balances performance and fuel efficiency with unrestricted access to all features. Eco Pro mode promotes optimal mpg and lowers the electrical draw of features like AC, seat heating and heated mirrors. According to BMW, in an everyday driving scenario on a full charge and tank of gas the i8 can travel over 310 miles in Comfort mode.
The gasoline four-valve in-line three-cylinder alone generates 231hp and 236 lb-ft of torque to the rear wheels through a six-speed automatic transmission. The BMW eDrive hybrid synchronous motor produces 131hp and 184 lb-ft of torque to the front wheels through a two-stage automatic transmission. Together the total output equates to 362hp and 420 lb-ft of torque.
The anticipation is over as the all-wheel drive BMW i8 sports car and its full details were released today at the 2013 Frankfurt Motor Show in Germany. Unique to every other production vehicle the brand built previously, the 4-seater i8 coupe combines performance with the latest plug-in hybrid technology in a package that will be available in the Untied States in the spring of 2014. It carries an MSRP of $135700. BMW is calling it, “the world’s most forward-looking sports car.”
Safety is also highlighted through the crash-active aluminum structures in the front and rear vehicle sections, and the rigidity of CFRP used throughout the interior structure. The battery is mounted in a central location under the body. Fail-safes within the high-voltage systems also protect both the vehicle and its occupants.
Engine: BMW TwinPower Turbo in-line-three cylinder, 4 valves, Valvetronic fully-variable valve control, High Precision Direct Gasoline Injection
The Life module passenger cell is made from carbon-fiber reinforced plastic (CFRP) which is both light and durable – a main reason for the low curb weight. CFRP is 50 percent lighter than steel and 30 percent lighter than aluminum. The doors, for instance, are made of a CFRP inner structure with an aluminum outer skin and weigh 50 percent less than the conventionally constructed variant. A magnesium instrument panel support weighs 30 percent less than that within a BMW 6 Series too. Foam plastic technology within the AC ducts cuts weight by 60 percent over standard processes and reduces sound pollution. Even the design of the wiring helps decrease weight since the power electronics are directly connected to the electric motor shortening required wire length.
, First plug-in hybrid from BMW Group utilizing TwinPower Turbo and eDrive technology, Available in the United States in spring of 2014, MSRP $135700 (plus destination and handling), 3285 lb curb weight, 362hp, 420 lb-ft, 0-62mph in 4.4sec, 94mpg and ability to run 22 miles on electric-only power,

Standard 20in forged aluminum wheels are optimized for aero and weight savings too. For markets that allow, CFRP three-piece wheels created exclusively for the i8 are also an option for further weight reduction and agility.
For those interested in charge time, it will take 3.5 hours for a full charge if connected to a 110v power outlet but if you spring for the BMW i Charging Station the process takes only 1.5 hours.
On the subject of light signature unique laser headlights are available as an option where regulations allow – not in US. Laser lighting is monochromatic, which means the beams are near parallel and offer supreme illumination 1000 times greater than conventional LEDS, according to BMW. This type of lighting uses less than half the energy consumption of an LED system.
If you have not noticed yet, environmentally friendly practices are a main focus of the i Series formation. Most of the aluminum used is procured from recycling or created using a renewable energy source. Olive oil extract tans the leather surfaces of the seats and instrument panel to further the objective of sustainability. The interior accent strips, door trim, roof liner, floor mats, body pillar trim and floor covering are made of textiles derived from recycled materials too.
Smooth body lines, full LED-headlights, wing-like opening doors and a wide 76.5in stance accentuated by the dual front kidney grilles offer an aggressively futurist stance.
