The design of the BMW i8

The exterior and interior design of the i8 are heavily influenced by its LifeDrive architecture and pioneering BMW eDrive system, however its reinterpretation of established design features ensures it’s still recognizable as a BMW.

The structure of overlapping and interlocking surfaces also contributes to the unmistakable appearance of the BMW i8: this layering principle allows aerodynamic forms to be wrapped up in a progressively styled package, while powerfully formed wheel arches draw attention to the wide tracks.
