BMW will show off their new BMW i8 models at the North American International Auto Show in January. The show takes place in Detroit between the 14th and 28th of January.
The new BMW i8 Coupe and i8 Roadster were officially announced last month and they will now make their US debut next month.
World premiere of the updated BMW i8 Coupe: The three-cylinder petrol engine and electric drive system team up to generate system output of 275 kW/374 hp. The BMW eDrive technology on hand also includes a high-voltage lithium-ion battery with cell capacity of 34 Ah and gross energy capacity of 11.6 kWh. The battery delivers the energy for the 105 kW/143 hp electric motor to power the car from rest all the way to a maximum 105 km/h (65 mph) on a wave of innovative sports car feeling. Pushing the eDrive button raises the top speed on electric power alone to 120 km/h (75 mph).
