BMW’s has created the first mass produced plugin hybrid sportscar, the i8. BMW i8 uses a plug-in hybrid system consisting of a turbocharged three-cylinder BMW TwinPower Turbo petrol engine and BMW eDrive technology in the form of an electric drive system. The 1.5-liter combustion engine develops 170 kW/231 hp and drives the rear wheels of the BMW i8, while the 96 kW/131 hp electric drive sends its power to the front wheels and allows an all-electric range of up to 35 kilometers (22 miles) and a top speed of 120 km/h (75 mph).

BMW i8: Supercar 2.0   Review By XCAR

The first plug-in hybrid sportscar will debut in the United States in August of this year and is also the second model of the new BMW i sub-brand. As with the i3, the core of the car is the LifeDrive architecture with carbon passenger cell which gives the i8 a particularly low weight. XCAR take to the road to see if our preconceptions of hybrid cars can be changed forever. The article BMW i8: Supercar 2.0 – Review By XCAR appeared first on BMW BLOG

Just a day after we published a report on a possible future BMW 6 Series Gran Tourer, rendering artist Theophilus Chin gives us some new renderings of the rumored vehicle. The 6 Series Shooting Break is said to not sacrifice on aesthetics in favor of practical aspects. The Gran Coupe will serve as a design inspiration for the Gran Tourer but it will come with a very inclined tailgate, fine glass surfaces, lower ride height and no roof track. The niche model will also deliver enhanced luxury and exclusivity and it will be more convenient than the Gran Coupe, thanks to its electric tailgate opening.

BMW 6 Series Gran Tourer   Rendering

The 2017 BMW 6 Series, presumably named G32 and G33, is based on the 2016 G30 BMW 5 Series so will feature a lighter chassis and will make use of lightweight materials. The luxurious two-and four-door will remain priced clearly above the BMW 5 Series and retain their own interior. BMW 6 Series Gran Tourer is rumored to be released in 2017.
