A LEGACY THAT LIVES ON.
In hanging up its spurs, the BMW i8 leaves the production line with more than just accolades and awards. It helped set the tone for so many future models and series, from the latest plug-in hybrids and electric vehicles to the X models, like the new BMW iX3, and even the new interpretation of luxury driving, which is made possible not just through aesthetics but also innovative production methods. Throw in its impressive sales, and you have a future classic in the making.
Some of the awards and achievements earned by the BMW i8 include winning at least one title for five consecutive years (2015-2019) at the world-renowned 'Engine of the Year Award' for its plug-in hybrid drive, winning the British Top Gear magazine 'Car of the Year' and "UK Car of the Year', and taking the title 'World Green Car' as well as the class victory in the 'All-Wheel Drive Car of the Year' survey.
