After modification of the smaller i3, BMW soon is planing major changes and the hybrid i8, which caused a small revolution with the emergence of the market.
The most important changes to the model,are not going to be visible for the naked eye. A modernized version of the i8 will have an output of 420 horsepower, or 80 more than the refreshed version. This will be possible by the emergence of more powerful electric motor and some changes in 1.5-liter 3-cylinder petrol turbo engine. Increased capacity will allow to the i8 to accelerate from 0 to 100 km / h in less than 4.4 seconds and top speed remains 250 km / h. In addition, i8 will get a battery with a larger capacity – from 7,1 kWh to 10 kWh, although this has not been confirmed officially. It envisages also an opportunity for wireless battery charging
Changes in the design will also be veri interesting – according to some British media, i8 will get new wheels, which will be entirely of carbon-fiber, but they will be offered only as accessories. Almost certainly controlled by gestures infotainment system from BMW 7 will occur in the renewed i8
