2019 BMW i8 Roadster: This Is It, With Slightly More Horsepower and Range
30 Ноября, 2017, 13:54
The new BMW i8 Roadster has been unveiled alongside the updated BMWi8 Coupe at the 2017 Los Angeles motor show. That's the lesson automakers learned after Tesla's original electric Roadster and the Model S sedan proved the electric vehicle market could expand well beyond nerdy Earth do-gooders. In electric-only mode, the top speed is 120km/h, while the driving range is now up to 53km in the soft-top, and 55km in the coupe. A rear window automatically raises when the top goes down to minimize turbulence in the cabin. However, the 2+2 seating configuration is now changed to a strict two-seater. There's still some storage behind the seats and roof compartment, though not much. Add in the 4.7 cubic feet in the rear compartment, and this thing might actually be better equipped for weekend getaways than the Coupe. The cargo compartment in the rear can fit 4.7 cubic feet, so you'll have to take a different auto to the fairway. The new roadster and coupe will launch in May 2018, as yet there are no details on pricing. With an updated battery system, the hybrids now make 374 horsepower, up from the old i8's 357 hp. On pure electric the new system can run up to 18 miles on pure electric over the previous 15. BMW is putting the 0-60 miles per hour time of the Coupe and Roadster at 4.2/4.4 seconds, respectively. Driving on electricity alone, the i8 can reach a maximum speed of 75mph once the eDrive button has been pressed.
Both variants use a carbon fiber reinforced polymer (CFRP) passenger cell and CFRP and aluminum butterfly doors. Also aiding rigidity on the Roadster are additional panels in the suspension and special front and rear struts.
With the addition of the folding roof mechanism and structural reinforcements, the i8 Roadster weighs 1595 kilograms, or around 60kg more than the coupe model. Top speed on both is restricted to 155mph.
Both can be ordered with Tera World Copper interior trim, which is new to the i8, and features a cloth and leather upholstery combination in a two-tone (Amido/E-Copper) colour scheme. The open-top i8 carries forward all the hardware of the i8 Coupe along with the design language.
The refreshed i8 and new i8 Roadster should be hitting Canadian dealerships around spring 2018.
While the coupe can seat four people in a pinch, the roadster is purely a two-seat proposition.
