As a halo car, the 2019 BMW i8 Coupe and Roadster are quite the draw. These hybrid-performance machines use a tiny turbocharged 3-cylinder engine and electric motor to generate the kind of speed formerly relegated to big-displacement V8 and V12s. Impressive fuel economy and a very green footprint round out the reasons to buy.
New Features and Revisions
The 2019 BMW i8 adds an open-air, 2-seat roadster to the lineup, bringing a bit more style to an already stylish car. The lithium-ion batteries are more powerful, and horsepower is up by 12 to 369. The i8’s electric range increases to 18 miles.
