BMW Revises Fuel Economy of i8 Electric Hybrid... Up.. A Lot!
The production version of BMW’s plug-in hybrid supercar – the i8 – finally arrived at the Frankfurt Motor Show last year offering almost proper supercar price – £100k – along with an almost supercar 0-62mph of 4.4 seconds.
What the i8 also offers is ridiculous economy figures thanks to its plug-in hybrid power (and thanks to the daft way official economy figures are calculated) and now, as the i8 gets ready to go in to full production, BMW has revealed that the official economy figures have just got dafter.
BMW reckoned the i8 would average 113mpg and have emissions of just 59g/km, but a quick twiddle of their abacus revealed that the combination of the 228bhp 1.5 litre 3-cylinder engine and another 128bhp from its electric motor will actually manage 134.5mpg and emissions of just 48g/km.
