The carbon fiber and aluminum i8 plug-in hybrid has an electric motor and a three-cylinder gasoline engine to deliver a combined 362 hp. Despite its power, the car has a fuel economy average of 2.5 l/100km (94 U.S. mpg/ 113 UK mpg). BMW expects the United States to be the largest sales market for the i8, which launches in mid-2014.
