Confirmed! BMW i8 Out In June

BMW confirmed the i8 will start being delivered to customers in June.

With the completion of the development work and final preparations for production at the BMW Group plant in Leipzig, BMW confirmed the launch of the BMW i8 is on track.

Delivery of the first customer cars will start in June 2014, beginning with the main European markets.

Series production of customer vehicles will start in April; customers have already been able to place pre-orders for the BMW i8 in all major markets since autumn 2013.

However, BMW added demand for the BMW i8 is already exceeding the planned production volume during ramp-up.

The i8 will end up being more fuel efficient than expected. In parallel to the completion of the statutory type approval, BMW said its engineers were able to achieve a further improvement of key driving performance and fuel consumption data. With its BMW eDrive in plug-in hybrid configuration, the i8 has a 0–100 km/h (62 mph) sprint time of 4.4 seconds and an EU test cycle average fuel consumption of 2.1 litres/100 kilometers (134.5 mpg imp) as well as CO2 emissions of 49 g/km. The related electricity consumption was measured at 11.9 kilowatt-hour per 100 kilometers (62 miles).

The BMW i8’s plug-in hybrid system combines a 170 kilowatt (231 horsepower), 236 pound-feet of torque three-cylinder gasoline engine with BMW TwinPower Turbo technology and a 96 kilowatt (131 horsepower), 184 pound-feet of torque electric motor. The BMW eDrive system also includes a5,2 kilowatt-hour lithium-ion high-voltage battery.

BMW stated in zero-emission all-electric mode, the BMW i8 has a top speed of 120 km/h (75 mph) and a range of 37 kilometers (23 miles); charging times range from less than two up to three hours, depending on the speed of the charging station.
