Next Gen BMW i8 May Give Up 750 Horses Without Gas
Porsche shot down the expectations of people about seeing an all-electric Porsche 911 and if you want a zero emission sports coupe with two doors then your next best thing is the next gen BMW i8,
The BMW i8 EV should offer up 750 horses and a range of 300 miles so this may soon have you forgetting all about the Porsche 911.
There is a catch though and this is that the BMW i8 isn’t going to arrive before 2023, when the company will move into electric vehicles with high performance. By this time there may be other choices of sports cars that are electric that are capable of offering up this much power.
The Tesla Model X and Model S have shown us that you can have just electric power to get from standing still to 60mph in only 2.6 seconds.
Right now the BMW i8 offering 750 horses is just a rumor so you do have to take things with a dose of salt. At the moment the most realistic of the high performance electric vehicles is going to be the 2020 Porsche Mission E, which offers 600 horses.
