BMW Rumourmill in full swing
#1
So, the BMW i8 is apparently going to get a facelift next year as well as recieve a power increase AND, more intriguing, a battery electric version that might be made for Formula E purposes only… rumour has it.

Further rumours are that BMW will use the electric motors they developed for use in their hydrogen powered i8-like test mule and those are nearly 250bhp each. Perhaps one of these might make its way into the i3 too, which could also receive a facelift next year.

Nothing confirmed, obviously, but all exciting stuff if even half true!

Makes sense that Formula E safety car is full EV

Furthermore, the facelift i8 is apparently going to receive a larger battery pack, in much the same way as the i3 94Ah has done - by using the same physical battery dimensions, but with more energy dense cells.

Not yet, no but BMW are likely to display something at a future motor show.
