Starting in March 2015, the BMW i8 plug-in hybrid sports car will receive an extended range of standard equipment and new interior design options.

The Pure Impulse Experience package is now included in the range of features available for the BMW i8. It comprises lifestyle products in the areas of culture, design, travel and gastronomy, which are aligned to the progressive and sustainable “next-premium” orientation of the BMW i brand.

As of March 2015, the Carpo Carum Grey interior will be offered as well.

Natural leather elements are combined with partially perforated leather surfaces in the light color Carum Grey and specific BMW i Blue accents, such as those on the seatbelt straps or the double stitching on the seats and floor mats. Amido metallic surfaces on the instrument panel, center console and doors round off the overall look.

Further special equipment options available in future are a leather engine cover and black-painted brake calipers.
