BMW introduces 2019 i8 Roadster and 2019 i8 Coupe at the LA Auto Show 2017

BMW began the launch ceremony of its i8 Roadster at the 2017 LA Auto Show. This was a test case where the future of its vehicles was at stake. It is not only an EV but fun to drive as a sports car as well. The design of this car is just superb.

The Roadster model was a valuable addition to the pre-existing Coupe. It has a foldable cloth roof to boot. The carbon fibre structure makes it exceptionally durable. Also the fact that it is a hybrid makes things more interesting. A great deal of variety has been included in this model version.

The doors lift upwards in the manner of a seagull’s wings as was clear at the 2017 LA Auto Show. While the Coupe has cargo space and rear seats, the Roadster has only two seats.

The i8 roadster has two aero-ridges behind each seat. This kind of reminds one of 1950s cars. The roof as mentioned before is retractable thereby minimizng the wind drag force on the contours of the car.

The 1.5 liter three cylinder engine allows for 228 hp and 236 pound feet of torque. With increased battery size, it can go from 0-60 mph in 4.4 seconds.

BMW has big plans for the future. Its long list of future models will prove that the 2017 LA Auto Show will have been mild in comparison to what lies ahead for car enthusiasts and aficionados.
