2015 BMW i8 Review

Fuel Efficient
In a mixture of city and freeway driving the i8 averaged 65 mpg. On a full charge we got about 16 miles on electric power only. Regenerative braking is efficient and brake feel is smooth and progressive, unlike the grabby regenerative brakes found all too often in hybrids. The electric motor returns about 5 miles/kWh — based on the current cost of electricity in the Seattle area, that equates to about 150 miles for the price of a gallon of gasoline.

  1. I noticed the speedometer has a top end of one sixty, fast enough for me. Guess I’ll do some Googling to find the 0-60 and 1/4 mile stats. Sixty-five mpg combined is a great incentive for you rich people to own one of these cool looking car.

  2. I like that you give both the pro’s and con’s of the cars – that makes for a very interesting article.
