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.

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.


Doors to the future.

Scissor doors are designed for more than a dramatic entrance. Cleverly constructed of aluminum and carbon fiber, these sportscar signatures keep vehicle weight down while still looking incredible.


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*.



The BMW i8 is purpose-built to harness incredible hybrid power – and crafted to deliver a drive like nothing else.

Instant Torque

BMW i8 models draw their revolutionary power from a 141 hp synchronous electric motor located in the front of the vehicle, under the hood.

Lasting Power

A 1.5-liter TwinPower Turbo engine, positioned over the rear axle, works together with the motor for a combined output of 369 hp.

Body Balance

The placement of motor, engine, and lithium-ion batteries in the center tunnel give the i8 models a lower center of gravity – and near-perfect 50/50 weight distribution.

Get ready


It's easier than ever to keep your BMW i8 at full capacity. Charge at home with a range of options – or maintain battery levels on the go.


Getting maximum performance from your i8 Coupe or i8 Roadster is as simple as catching a charge. The lithium ion battery can be charged from completely flat to full in about three hours – and faster if you charge as you go.

Maintain Power

BMW i8 models include regenerative braking technology. When braking or coasting, the electric motor couples with the drivetrain and acts as a generator, transforming kinetic energy into battery power.

Maximize Range

Say goodbye to range anxiety. The innovative hybrid power of the BMW i8 allows for up to 370 miles of driving before needing to refuel or recharge.

Get ready TO

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.
