BMW’s stylish flagship hybrid gets a number of improvements — and an all-new figure design. The BMW i8 Roadster makes use of a plug-in hybrid powertrain much like the prior hardtop, just upgraded with more potential, power, and distance. Horsepower is up 12, electric range is now about 33 miles, and it can hit 65 miles per hour without the use of the petrol motor, enhanced from a paltry 43 mph in the earlier model. The power soft-top can increase or reduce in under 16 seconds as well as stows away in a storage space filled by the back seats in the car. It also acquires the performance enhancements, along with new inner surface and wheel features, and coupe-specific badging.
