THE NEW BMW i8 COUPÉ.

The future is yours to drive.

With the latest eDrive technology and intelligent energy management, the award-winning BMW i8 Coupé with its iconic design is a truly revolutionary vehicle. Boasting a turbocharged three-cylinder engine, which accelerates from 0 to 62mph in just 4.4 seconds, and the unique LifeDrive architecture for sublime weight distribution, it delivers a new sense of freedom.

A glance at the future.

The BMW i8 Coupé has all the characteristics of a full-blooded sports car with its long wheelbase, short overhangs and a solid posture. The entire shape and form follows the BMW i design philosophy, including the V-shaped ‘black belt’. The unmistakable design element runs from the front, over the roof, to the rear. This works in perfect harmony with the dynamic stream-flow design, redesigned Aero Curtains, U-shaped LED Daytime Running Lights and LED rear lights, and of course the prominent double kidney grille.

Dihedral doors.

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.

Characteristic rear lights.

The LED rear lights are designed in BMW i typical icon graphics and contribute considerably to the overall design of the BMW i8 Coupé.

Striking light-alloy wheels.

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.

Progressive design.

Thanks to its sporty, modern and sustainable design, driving the BMW i8 Coupé is truly unmistakable. Standout 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, it also has the new electrically-adjustable sport seats that are designed to thrill the senses.

Unique and exclusive.

Experience the high-quality trims available with the BMW i8 Coupé:
  • Carpo Ivory White/Black in BMW i Spheric Full leather
  • Accaro E-Copper/Amido in BMW i Exclusive natural leather with cloth accentuator
  • Carpo Amido/Black in BMW i Spheric Full leather
  • Halo Dalbergia Tan/Black in BMW i Exclusive natural leather with cloth accentuator
 

Enjoy smarter power.

The intelligent energy management of the BMW i8 Coupé coordinates the interaction between the electric motor and the 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 42g/km*.

LifeDrive architecture.

What makes the BMW i8 Coupé unique is its exceptional lightweight concept called LifeDrive architecture. It consists of the Drive module – an aluminium chassis – and the Life module – an ultralight passenger compartment made of high-strength carbon-fibre. Together they create sustainability and perfect weight balance, and deliver unmatched sportiness.
 

Freedom to go.

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 Coupé.

Connecting your worlds.

The BMW i8 Coupé experience is boosted by innovative connectivity. Features like ConnectedDrive and the BMW Connected+ app offer richer and more immersive driving experiences, whether it’s must-have entertainment or real-time information. Discover more about the future of connected services, thanks to BMW Teleservices, and how it helps connect your worlds. 

Expect the unexpected.

The BMW i8 Coupé is always prepared for the unexpected thanks to numerous assistance systems. From Dynamic Traction Control (DTC), which reduces wheel spin, to the BMW xDrive all-wheel drive system, technology is as much a source of safety as it is efficiency and performance. This is what makes it the ultimate driving machine.
