In case you missed it, the BMW i8 hybrid supercar is out in the wild (I’d be surprised if you’re reading this and haven’t taken note of the excellent advertisements for this groundbreaking car). The i8 is powered by two drivetrains – a 1.5 litre three cylinder petrol engine serving the rears and a 129 bhp electric motor powering the front wheels. The question is, can this car deliver thrills and performance whilst offering frugal motoring and low emissions? Watch the video courtesy of Autocar to find out.
As a side note, we at Car Articles are firm believers that you can combine the best of both worlds. The BMW i8 is testament to this concept and it really shows just what can be done using the latest in engineering. Take note manufacturers of the world – the i8 is a massive leap and something for all others to aim for!
