The electric vehicle just got a whole lot more fun, as BMW this week introduced the 2019 BMW i8 Roadster at the L.A. Auto Show.
The Roadster combines the BMW i8’s green tendencies with powerful performance, and gives you the chance to enjoy the cool breeze in your hair on top of that.
Total output reaches 369 horsepower, and the first-ever BMW i8 Roadster (and its coupe counterpart) can both cover up to 18 miles in purely electric driving.
0-to-60 speed is in the low 4-second range, and top speed is estimated at 155 mph.
Passengers in the BMW i8 Roadster can either choose to drop the top (which opens in about 15 seconds) or stay covered. Standard equipment on the BMW i8 Roadster includes 20-inch wheels.
Sales of the i8 Roadster and i8 coupe will commence in spring 2018, with prices yet to be announced.
