Discover A New Type Of Sports Car

The majority of sports cars that can accelerate from 0-60 MPH in just 4.2 seconds don’t offer much else to the table aside from speed. However, the 2019 BMW i8 defies the norm. On top of world-class performance, it delivers unrivaled luxury and innovation.

Drivers who want to test-drive the 2019 i8 at South Motors BMW can experience it either as a coupe or roadster. Both models are available in 6 unique exterior paint schemes that make it unmistakable from other cars on the road. Car shoppers can choose from E-Copper with Frozen Grey Accent, Sophisto Grey Metallic with Frozen Grey accent, Sophisto Grey Metallic with BMW i Frozen Blue accent, Donington Grey, Crystal White Pearl Metallic with Frozen Grey accent and Crystal White Pearl Metallic with BMW i Frozen Blue accent.

Futuristic Concepts Meet Reality

Leave gas stations behind for good by making the most of the 2019 i8’s AC synchronous electric motor. This powertrain features a 11.6 kWh lithium-ion battery, which can be fully charged in just about 3 hours via a Level 2 charger, which can be installed at your home.

While charging at home is practical for everyday life, many car shoppers wonder how they can keep their plug-in hybrid juiced up while on a road trip. Thankfully, public charging stations are becoming more and more common, and there are currently more than 44,000 public charging stations in the U.S.

Utilizing only its electric motor, the 2019 BMW i8 has an EPA-estimated electric range of 18 miles. That’s plenty of distance to run errands or drive your daily commute without having to use any gas.

Combined, this powertrain kicks out 369 horsepower and 420 lb-ft of torque.

As previously mentioned, the 2019 BMW i8 Coupe rockets from 0-60 MPH in just 4.2 seconds. The roadster variant also delivers an impressive 0-60 MPH acceleration time of 4.4 seconds.
