No specific details have been released regarding what kind of engine that 2018 BMW i8 Roadster will have. But it is clear that this car will get so many improvements in the powertrain. Firstly, the lithium-ion battery in this newest i8 Roadster car will get some power boost. Rumor has it that 14.2 kWh battery is being prepared for this car and it is far stronger than the previous car in this series. This battery can generate 266 kW of power and 570 Nm of torque .

Meanwhile, the petrol engine is going to be an updated version of 1.5 L 3 cylinder engine from the previous version. The combination of the electric and petrol engine can produce around 420 HP which is stronger than this car’s predecessor that can only hit 357 HP.

With such a powerful engine, we can expect less than 4.4 seconds for its 0-100 km/h ability. Furthermore, it is also very possible that the pure electric version is going to be produced sometime after the hybrid version hits the market. 2018 BMW i8 Roadster Release Date and Price tag Actually, the manufacturer has not decided whether this car will be launched as a 2018 or 2019 model.
