The 2015 model of the BMW i8 is being marketed as a high performance plug-in hybrid, which is almost like calling a poker-player honest. But unlike the oxymoron of the player, the one about the BMW i8 surprisingly holds true. The future of BMW i8 in Cyprus seems particularly bright considering Cypriots rule the roost when it comes to car ownership. The BMW i8 has the ability to race at 60 mph in just about 4.6 seconds, with its highest speed being 150 mph making it a dream drive on Cyprus roads. This car is genuinely environmentally friendly and by driving around in a BMW i8, you will be doing your bit in keeping Cyprus free of air pollution. The latest BMW i8 also boasts of a fuel economy rating of 76 MPG / 27 MKPL. It is therefore fairly claimed that this is the first sports car which has the consumption as well as the emission value of a compact car. Its engine creates magic with its turbocharged 1.5 liter inline three cylinders along with a lithium-ion battery pack and an electric motor. The i8 can travel 15 miles, achieving the highest speed of 75 miles per hour when running on electric power alone, but when the gas engine kicks in, it becomes a force to reckon with and can be driven up to 330 miles at a stretch. All this at the fuel economy rate of just 28 mpg and to top it off the cars battery can get recharged in just 1.5 hours.
The light weight of the car is a major contributor to its fuel saving capability and high performance. The body of the car is basically made of thin, chemically hardened glass, aluminum and carbon fiber, making it almost the same weight as a BWM 3 series sedan. It has a low and sleek styled body with doors that are scissor lift in style and unique to look at. It has 2 doors and has 4 seats with regular (2+2) seating. With the new look given to the i8, it pretty much guarantees a grand entrance with all eyes on it as it speeds past Cyprus roads. However it does take some practice getting in and out of the car because of the stylized doors. The seats inside are made of naturally treated leather and recycled material and the tiny seats in the rear can double as cargo space since the trunks capacity is miniscule.
If you are looking for a hybrid car with a sexy stylized body and a speed to die for, the BMW i8 is your obvious choice! The car may be a bit expensive, therefore you can look through all other used and new diesel or petrol bmw for sale in Cyprus.
