BMW Vision EfficientDynamics Concept Car
This BMW Vision EfficientDynamics concept car will be presented at the
Frankfurt Motor Show. This vehicle is a Plug-In Hybrid, with two
drive-trains, a 3-cylinder Diesel engine, and an
electric drive - combining fuel efficiency and driving pleasure with the
acceleration of an M3. TheAutoChannel.com has the complete story.

2014 BMW i8 Full Review
n a word, intriguing. You bring the i8 to life by pushing a 'start button',
triggering an electronic 'bong' as the dash springs to life in front of
you. Pull the gear selector into 'Drive', brush the accelerator and the i8
creeps away in complete silence.
As speed grows, there's a noticeable whine from the front motor. It's in no
way unpleasant, and gives you the distinct impression that you're in
something special. Go beyond 40mph, or push the accelerator to the floor,
and the 3-cylinder petrol engine comes into play. At part throttle, you
notice it working, but push harder and a distinctive (almost 911-like)
warble swirls around the cabin.
For the full i8 experience, though, you need to select 'Sport' mode. Only
then does the i8 feel quick. As the engine whips around to its 7000rpm
limiter, that warble gains a harder edge that's particularly addictive.
What's most impressive is that you never sense that the front motor is
fighting with the rear engine for attention. Driving an i8 feels entirely
natural, with no excessive re-gen on the over-run either.
There's more understeer than expected on initial turn-in, but the engineers
think this can be dialed out before customer cars are delivered. Ignoring
this, the car feels neutral, with crisp, lightweight and accurate steering
-- which encourages you to explore the outer limits of the talented
You sense that because the battery pack sits so low, and the tiny power
plants are packaged as close to the centre of the car as possible -- the
balance of the chassis is near perfect, giving the i8 an impressive
deftness through the corners. The only fly in the ointment is that the
quoted 0-62mph time of 4.5secs over-flatters the actual performance on
offer, and I suspect that this impressive time is a result of the i8's
excellent four-wheel traction and instant torque that all electric motors
deliver. The i8 is not in any way slow, but neither is it as punchy as
you'd expect. .

BMW i8 – репортаж Михаила Петровского (updated)
Сперва нам показалось, что организаторы
тест-драйва пожадничали с маршрутом:
бесконечное шоссе да небольшой кусочек
сельских дорог с трафиком. Но i8,
оказывается, и не требует большего.
