BMW i8 facelift to be introduced in 2017

BMW i8 facelift to be introduced in 2017

BMW’s i8 is a plug-in hybrid sports car with a carbon fibre reinforced plastic passenger compartment. First introduced in 2014, the facelift is now slated to hit dealerships internationally in the fourth quarter of 2017. 

Reports suggest that the main highlight of this version will be the upgraded hybrid motor which should bring about a 10 per cent bump in overall power. Details revealed that the 1.5-litre three cylinder motor will be reworked and the combined power output would hover around 420bhp. This works out to an increase of about 60bhp from the current specs. 

Sources also mentioned that the six-speed auto transmission abilities would be revised, and this can only translate into quicker lap times. Facts regarding the battery packs have not been disclosed. However, BMW has been testing the Halo inductive wireless charging system with its partner Qualcomm, and we could expect to see some technology bits find their way on to the facelift. BMW should get the updated i8 to India once launched and it will add to the car maker’s hybrid repertoire.
