The EPA has released the official figures for the $135,700 BMW i8:

  • Electric (+ a wee bit of gas) range: 15 Miles
  • MPGe: 76
  • MPG combined (gas only): 28
Honestly, we're not surprised by any of these figures, but we will say that BMW had long claimed an MPGe rating of 94 and insisted the i8 was capable of 22 miles of electric-only range.  Euro-NEDC rules do apply to the electric range estimate though.

The first U.S. BMW i8 (a one-of-a-kind) will be auctioned off on Saturday August 16 at the Concours d’Elegance in Pebble Beach.
