BMW has revealed the first-ever i8 Roadster, as well as an updated i8 Coupe, Wednesday at the Los Angeles International Auto Show.
Both 2019 models will go on sale next spring.
Featuring optimized eDrive technology, the i8 utilizes dual electric motors, coupled with a three-cylinder turbocharged engine that produces a total of 369 horsepower.
The car can now go 18 miles in pure EV mode, thanks to a larger battery, with both the roadster and coupe models rated at a 70 mile-per-gallon equivalent, according to the German manufacturer.
With hybrid-specific all-wheel drive, the i8 can go from 0-60 mph in 4.2 seconds with a electronically limited top speed of 155 mph.
While final pricing has yet to be announced, both the i8 Roadster and i8 Coupe are expected to each be in excess of $100,000.
The sports cars, along with i3 model, are part of BMW’s commitment to have 12 fully electric cars by 2025.
