Examine It! BMW I8 Predrive
BMW will officially unveil its i8 model at the Frankfurt International Motor Show in mid-September. The gasoline engine of the 2+2 plug-in hybrid has a performance of 170 kilowatts and propels the rear wheels. The 96-kilowatt electric motor drives the front wheels.
This hybrid system can be driven in all-electric mode or in combined mode for an all-wheel-drive setup that can take those bends at speed. Though its still sporting a camouflage paint-job, we take a closer look.
