The Spyder features include doors that open around the A pillar and the electric motor, camouflaged by the transparent posterior.
The combination between lightweight construction and hybrid technology gives the BMW i8 Spyder Concept a sport car image, but a rather characteristic consumption for small cars. The whole car is developed around the philosophy of LifeDrive so BMW i8 Spyder Concept is a plug-in hybrid powered by eDrive drivetrain, which combines the high-performance electric motor with the gasoline engine. Li-ion batteries can be charged in just 105 minutes, in any setting, even from a small household machine. The weight and the distribution of the ideal masses (50:50), the center of gravity which is very low, all of these combined with an excellent dynamic power of 354 hp, that promises a great driving pleasure for the customers of this kind of car.
