BMW announced the price of its luxury sport plug-in hybrid the i8 in the UK, which starts from £94,845 ($162,000 USD) incl. VAT, however on the British website we see £99,895.

47 BMW dealerships have been appointed i agents in the UK, although the entire network can handle the servicing needs of the i8.

The German manufacturer expect to sell a total of 750 units in the first full year worldwide, but we won’t even try to guess how many will be sold just in the UK

For comparison, Tesla Model S P85 base starts in UK from £69,000 incl. VAT.  Given the pricing difference, which would you buy?  A Tesla Model S?  Or a BMW i8?

    As fast (in acceration)

    More practical (by a country mile)

    Cheaper to run

    Much cheaper to buy

    …the Tesla Model S every time!

      and the i8 looks cool but the Tesla is absolute perfection, its simplistic design makes it so damn clean and sexy, cant name a better looking car.

    I don’t want to hear anyone complain when Tesla introduces the 500 mile Model S.
