Used BMW i8 cars for sale

2 results

Available as a coupe and soft-top convertible (the Roadster), the ambitious all-wheel-drive BMW i8 is similarly as powerful as the Audi R8 and Porsche 911, but with the added benefit of a more sustainable hybrid system. With its 1.5-litre turbocharged petrol engine, it generates 227bhp at the rear and 129bhp from the electric motor for the front wheels.

Its agility is partly down to BMW’s LifeDrive architecture - a platform that ensures the car is incredibly lightweight, with a carbon fibre tube chassis that’s 50% lighter than steel. This is one of many reasons why the BMW i8 makes a reliable and desirable second-hand car.

Versions of the BMW i8

The BMW i8 is available as a coupe or ‘Roadster’, which is the soft-top convertible version of the car. The main difference between the two versions is that the coupe comes with four seats and the Roadster comes with two.

Dihedral ‘butterfly’ doors add to the i8’s sporty appeal, whilst various interior trim levels emphasise its elegance - the standard CARPO trim features Ivory White or Black leather accents, whereas ACCARO adds Amido Black, Copper and metallic details.

Both versions of the BMW i8 come with a range of impressive tech features, including smartwatch and app integration for remote tracking, eco stats and vehicle control (such as unlocking the car from a distance).

How many seats are in a BMW i8?

Does the BMW i8 charge itself?

Older versions of the BMW i8 are regarded as self-charging hybrids - this means that the electric motors recover energy from the engine rather than from external charging like a plug-in hybrid. Essentially, this makes the vehicle self-charging to a degree, but the electric motor only operates to assist the engine rather than being a reliable source of power for the car.

With the focus being on electric vehicles at present, BMW have decided to discontinue the i8 to release a new range of fully-electric models, including the i4 saloon and iNext SUV flagship.
