The i8 Roadster manages 0-62mph in 4.6 seconds and the Coupe does it in 4.4 seconds, while both cars have a top speed of 155mph. The soft-top roof, made up of a large fabric panel and integrated header rails, is claimed to open in just 15 seconds at speeds of up to 50kph.
Standard features on both the coupe and roadster include a fast charging cable, the Professional satellite navigation system, the company's latest tile-based iDrive infotainment system, a freestanding 8.8-inch screen, dynamic damper control, automated emergency braking, cruise control, and a 2.2-inch touchscreen display built into the key fob. The soft-top can be stowed back in a cavity behind the seats in a perpendicular position.
The BMW i8 Roadster features a fully electric fabric roof, which takes just 15 seconds to fold or open at speeds up to 30mph; when the roof is stowed, the car's rear window raises slightly to reduce air turbulence in the cabin, while the roof and its mechanism are created to allow for some storage space behind the front seats.
Another change to the powertrain is the new lithium-ion battery that now boasts a cell capacity of 34Ah (up from 20Ah) and an energy capacity of 11.6kW (up from 7.1kW).
BMW has also had a fiddle with the glasshouse, beefing up the windscreen and quarter window and turning the rear window in to a deflector which can be raised or lowered wherever you have the roof.
Now that formula has been enhanced with a refurbished design, some battery and motor tweaks, and the introduction of a two-seat topless i8 Roadster. Now rated at 105kW of power and 250Nm of torque, the electric motor drives the front wheels.

The i8 Coupe, which was also showcased at the 2017 LA Auto Show, also gets a facelift for 2018 along with an increase in power. The electric motor is good for 105kW and pure EV range is quoted at 28km.
A boost of power to 369 horsepower means zero-to-100 km/h times now dwell in 4.6-second area for the Roadster, and around 4.4 for the coupe. The Giga and Halo interior trim options remain available and a new Tera World Copper has been added.
