BMW have outdown themselves with their new i8 concept car.
Not only is it the most impressively designed modern car I have seen this year, but the credentials that back it up are equally appealing. What could easily have been released as a top of the range sports vehicle has been moulded into a benchmark in environmental excellence on the car front. The BMW i8 is said to have zero emissions, run on electricity for up to 35km and have an hybrid engine.
The performance is equally impressive for such a green car, with statistics like 0-100km in 5 seconds and a top speed of 250km/h. The hybrid engine fuel economy is aimed at less than 3l per 100km.
Scheduled for release in 2014, this car will go a long way to creating a positive image of eco-friendly cars, where style is certainly not compromised in the pursuit going green.
I cannot wait for this car to be released!
