Enjoy smarter power

The intelligent energy management of the BMW i8 Coupé coordinates the interaction between the electric motor and the battery with the combustion engine. It’s always geared towards maximum performance with minimum consumption. This creates enormous efficiency, with CO2 emissions of up to only 42g/km*.

LifeDrive architecture

What makes the BMW i8 Coupé unique is its exceptional lightweight concept called LifeDrive architecture. It consists of the Drive module – an aluminium chassis – and the Life module – an ultralight passenger compartment made of high-strength carbon-fibre. Together they create sustainability and perfect weight balance, and deliver unmatched sportiness.

Freedom to go
Charging or refuelling – both are easy with the 360° ELECTRIC package. At home, charge with the BMW i Wallbox or the charging cable. You can also use sustainably-generated electricity from BMW Green Energy powered by Good Energy. On the road, the growing number of public charging stations can be easily used with the ChargeNow card. Find a charging station with the ChargeNow app or from directly within your BMW i8 Coupé.

The BMW i8 Coupé experience is boosted by innovative connectivity. Features like ConnectedDrive and the BMW Connected+ app offer richer and more immersive driving experiences, whether it’s must-have entertainment or real-time information.

Expect the unexpected

The BMW i8 Coupé is always prepared for the unexpected thanks to numerous assistance systems.

Customer Feedback

This BMW dealer is first class Made the car purchase so easy. I live in the south east. I saw the car I wanted in Lloyd BMW Newcastle. With the exact spec I wanted. I called and spoke to Malcolm mossop. We did the deal on the phone. Got the price I wanted for my car too. My local BMW dealer didn't have the car I wanted and wasn't keen to give me the right price for mine either. I will definitely deal with Lloyd again and would recommend it. So easy. Even over the phone hundreds of miles away! Thanks very much.
