The BMW i8 Roadster is futuristic right down to the last detail. Its imposing lightweight carbon-fibre dihedral doors are combined perfectly with the exclusive all-electric soft-top roof for maximum effect. The distinctive V-shaped black belt stretches along the entire car, underscoring its seductive low-hung silhouette. What’s more, the impressive streamflow design, which optimises airflow and creates unprecedented aerodynamics, gives you everything you need to set you free.
The BMW i8 Roadster roof can be fully and automatically retracted quietly in just 16 seconds – and up to driving speeds of 31mph.
The elegantly-hinged dihedral doors move forwards and upwards, and emphasise the vehicle’s sporty appearance. The generously proportioned door cut-outs also make access easier.
The LED rear lights are designed in BMW i typical icon graphics and contribute considerably to the overall design of the BMW i8 Roadster.
Attract attention with the standard 20” BMW i W-Spoke style 470 or with the optional 20” BMW i light-alloy wheels with 516 radial spoke design in Bicolor.
To enhance aerodynamics, the BMW i8 Roadster now features an improved bonnet vent that allows air to flow over the roof.
In laser high-beam mode, the optional BMW Laserlights illuminate a range of up to 600m, nearly twice as far as conventional LED headlights. This improves safety by enhancing visibility.
Sitting in a BMW i8 Roadster is all about thrilling the senses. Eye-catching design features include the new Carpo interior trim available in Ivory White/Black, which can be applied to the contour lines of the doors, the steering wheel and much more. Optional new trims, such as the Accaro interior trim, are also available. To complete the experience and make it utterly unforgettable, the BMW i8 Roadster also boasts new electrically-adjustable sport seats with memory function.
The intelligent energy management of the BMW i8 Roadster coordinates the interaction between the electric motor and the updated lithium-ion battery with the combustion engine. It’s always geared towards maximum performance with minimum consumption. This creates enormous efficiency, with CO2 emissions of up to only 46g/km*.
Charging or refuelling – both are easy with the 360° ELECTRIC package. At home, charge with the BMW i Wallbox or the charging cable. You can also use sustainably-generated electricity from BMW Green Energy powered by Good Energy. On the road, the growing number of public charging stations can be easily used with the ChargeNow card. Find a charging station with the ChargeNow app or from directly within your BMW i8 Roadster.
