Green Living Guy BMW i8 Test Drive Results. So I have test driven some cool green cars in my life. Therefore one of my favorites was the BMW i8 plugin hybrid. For it just stands for sustainability.

I mean folks all throughout the value chain. In addition complementary mobility services and a fresh understanding of premium. I mean quality defined squarely in terms of sustainability.

As I’ve written before, the BMW i8 plugin hybrid is a new, cutting-edge generation of sports car. It also clearly stands out in a crowd (you don’t have to worry about that folks!).

In addition. The second model unveiled by the new BMW i brand combines a plug-in hybrid drive system with a passenger cell made from carbon-fiber-reinforced plastic (CFRP) and an aluminum frame for the combustion engine and electric motor, the battery pack and the suspension.

Breaking new ground: premium cars underpinned by sustainability-led concepts arrive in the sports car segment.

In addition, when launched, the BMW i8 plugin hybrid was awarded with the World Green Car Award. That award came at the New York International Auto Show in 2015; right out the gate!

For the record, when that good old the EPA rated the i8 combined fuel economy at 76 MPGe (3.1 L gasoline equivalent/100 km; 91 mpg-imp gasoline equivalent) even I was like what? Huh? That is correct because I got that as a combined MPG!

It also 29 miles per gallon (6.7L) when running in pure gasoline mode (after the battery is drained empty). Although that doesn’t last long. It doesn’t late because of the amazing recharge ability of this car! That’s a truth. The car is just too powerful on recharge.

Finally and for the entire story.
