The 2016 BMW i8 doesn’t just turn heads – but it’s certainly a crowd pleaser. This innovative, aptly-styled sports car looks like it belongs on a racetrack. It would never look like a top-of-the-line luxury electric, but that’s what it is. This fully electric car can get up to a jaw-dropping 330 miles of total range, and takes only 2.5 hours to fully charge. Don’t think it lacks on power, either, because the TwinPower Turbo engine delievers 357 horsepower and 184 lb-ft of torque. You’re sure to turn heads behind the wheel of the BMW i8.
The 2016 BMW i8 is offered in one standard trim level.
