German car-maker BMW has put a new spin on its hybrid i8 sports car. The German automaker unveiled the 2019 BMW i8 Roadster, a two-seater hybrid with a convertible top.
The all-new i8 Roadster is a hybrid all-wheel drive sports car that feature its i8 predecessor’s gullwing doors that open forwards and upwards. The vehicle, which has a combustion engine driving the rear wheels and an electric motor driving the front wheels, can accelerate from 0 to 60 miles per hour in 4.4 seconds.
The i8 Roadster features an the all-season fabric soft-top that can be opened or closed electronically in less than 16 seconds and while the vehicle is in motion at up to 31 mph.
This is not an all-electric vehicle. But owners can experience pure electric driving. The vehicle has about 18 miles of pure electric driving before it switches to the gas combustion engine.
