2019 BMW i8 Roadster and Coupe Price, Release Date
BMW spend their big concern on the development of the new i8 Spyder at this time. It is the open-top model of their hybrid sports car. They spy photographers spied the model few times ago when BMW tested the vehicle together with the Spyder and the Coupe. They are going to provide some improvements as the sign that they are ready for the mid-cycle changes, especially for the hybrid.
The most important part to know is the heavy camouflage on the 2019 BMW i8 Spyder. It limits our way to analyze more details around the vehicle. However, we still can see that the vehicle has the similar pattern as the facelift of the BMW i3. According to some rumors, the new model is possible to have a cloth top to complete its design. Besides, the company will use the CRFP or Carbon Fiber Reinforced Polymer as the improved structure of the sports car. As a result, the vehicle has some innovations, especially the roof mechanism.
From the spy shots, the company tries to make a big difference between their two variants. We can say that it is easier to see the difference through the fresh rear deck and the rear apron from these two cars. However, we have to admit that the new 2019 BMW i8 has better improvements with its great charisma. The highlight is the rear end to provide better visibility. Since it is available with the mid-cycle refresh, we think that they will have a big concern on the security updates. The company has provided some hints, for example the more powerful battery.
2019 BMW i8 Engine
As of the engine department, BMW will upgrade the battery pack with the use of 10 kWh, not 7.1 kWh as before. It means that the new 2019 BMW i8 has more than 50% of better driving range than the outgoing model. According to rumors, the current model is able to make 362 hp. Right now, the company is still working on the plug-in hybrid. Probably, it is able to create 400 hp. We also expect the three-cylinder engine turbocharged and 1.5 liter combined with the updated electric motor to power the front axle. For other details, we have to wait more hints to talk further.
Can you predict when BMW is going to release the new 2019 BMW i8? We bet they will start the debut of this new vehicle in the beginning of the next year as the 2019 model. For the price, we have no words at all. We need to wait for the official announcement to get more updates.
