Last month, BMW announced the creation of the first-ever BMW i8 Roadster, offering BMW eDrive technology that powers the Ultimate Driving Machine to and introducing new ideal in sustainable driving. Imagine enjoying virtually silent driving with zero CO2 while experiencing the ultimate in open-air driving.

Both vehicles feature an optimized eDrive technology that makes more power than ever, creating a total output of 369 horsepower. With a combustion engine driving the rear wheels an an electric motor powering the front wheels, each vehicle turns in a 0-60 mph acceleration time of less than 4.5 seconds.

The BMW i8 has been developed with sustainability as a driving influence from the very start. Improved aerodynamics, lightweight design and advanced hybrid technology all fuel the i8, which enjoys a completely new LifeDrive vehicle architecture that is comprised of an aluminum chassis and carbon-fiber-reinforced plastic passenger cell. The freedom this architecture allows designers is exhibited by the bevy of prestigious design accolades that the vehicles have earned.

At Baron BMW, we're quite excited about the new i8 vehicles coming from BMW, and we're looking forward to them arriving on American shores next year.
