2014 BMW i8 first official photos emerge

by SpeedLux

The company has officially released two images of the production-ready 2014 BMW i8 which will be unveiled at IAA in Frankfurt on September 10.

BMW had just in this week released a teaser clip with the plug-in hybrid i8 and now they have released the official images of 2014 i8. The images display several similarities with the concept unveiled two years ago, though the production model loses the see-through doors and now comes with more down-to-earth alloy wheels.

Talking about engine options, the i8 will come with a three-cylinder, 1.5-liter TwinPower Turbo gasoline engine that would generate 231 HP (170 kW) and 236 lb-ft (320 Nm) of torque which would be transferred to the rear axle. An electric motor with 131 HP (96 kW) and 184 lb-ft (250 Nm) will drive the front wheels and enable the model to have a combined output of 362 HP (266 kW) and 420 lb-ft (570 Nm) of torque.

The 2014 BMW i8 production version will be able to accelerate to 0-62 mph (0-100 kmph) in just about 4.5 seconds and will come with an electronically-capped top speed of 155 mph (250 kmph). On electric power it would be able to touch a top speed of 75 mph (120 kmph).
