Alex On Autos Test Drives & Reviews BMW i8 – Videos

BMW i8

BMW i8

There is wealth of BMW i8 presentations and test drives reviews, but as always Alex On Autos stands out from the crowd with his undisturbed, detailed presentations – especially useful for those who not only are interested in the car, but are seriously considering purchase.

BMW i8 looks spectacular, is “fantastic expensive“, and returns decent fuel economy, provided you use EV mode often. Trunk and rear seat usefulness is questionable. Alex notes that the tires could be wider for improved braking.

For more insights, check out the full review below:

“What is the BMW i8, and why should I care?

The i8 can be thought of as a prototype car you can buy. It’s a sort of “test bed” for carbon fibre, hybrid and EV technologies wrapped in a super sexy (and super expensive) package”

    Alex does a great job. He covers the things most people actually care about when they’re buying cars, rather than dramatic camera angles and whether the steering has a good on-centre feel.

    I know this is subjective and many people don’t agree with me but this car’s design is stunning. It’s one of those few cars in the automotive history which f…ing doesn’t care about the dogmas, just simply gives a finger to the conservatives and becoming something new. Something that points to the future.

    Anyway… If you like the i8 then you will like this upcoming feature of the car:

      Hey R3D, nice find.

      Although we were at CES, for some reason we missed checking the mirrorless i8..glad Linus posted this review, it does look very impressive, so I’m a little bummed we missed out.

      Anywhoo, we’ll make sure to keep it up as a story ~soon-ish (with a hat tip to yourself too of course). Thanks

    I definitely love this car. Although I think I would be annoyed getting in and out of it due to the doors and the little wall next to the seat. I’m getting older now and that sort of thing actually might bother me, where when I was 20 years old it would not have.

    I have one and it is an awesome car. The ’15 models were going below MSRP in December.
