A Sports Coupe with a Flair for Frugality: Say Hello to the 2017 BMW i8


A vehicle wholly unlike any other across the roster, we here at BMW of Columbia are straight-up smitten by the 2017 i8, our esteemed German automaker's plug-in hybrid sports car.


Wondering why that is?


Then, keep reading; today's post should help spell things out.


The i8's drivetrain is no doubt an intriguing one. Teaming a turbocharged 1.5-liter inline three-cylinder engine with an electric motor and a 7.1-kWh lithium-ion battery pack, the i8 makes a monstrous 357 horsepower and 420 pound-feet of torque.


Also of note is its ability to do the 0-to-60 mph dash, as the i8 arrives there in a flat-out freakish 4.5 seconds.


For more information about this high-flying hybrid, or to take the wheel of one, we invite you to swing by our Columbia, SC showroom. Our seasoned staff is available to address your every question regarding the i8, or any other BMW model throughout the current fleet.
