The advanced Plug-in Hybrid drive of the open-top i8 is sufficient for an electric range of around 50 kilometers, the Option to refuel at any gas station eliminated, but in practice, all of the Empire. Thanks to the three-cylinder petrol engine in the rear of the BMW i8 Roadster also has a characteristic Sound that makes the Performance at full throttle is also audible. However, With around 4 seconds from a standstill to 100 km/h driving performance fall noticeably worse, even when you are not likely to complain to the Board of the open-top BMW i8 hardly a lack of power.
