With all the traits of a full-on sports car, if you fancy going with a BMW i8 Coupe Lease you’ve got yourself a PHEV that goes like a bullet & looks out of this world. i8 Coupe has some really striking features starting with a low-slung stance, plenty of over radar aero-tweaks & swish custom U-design LED headlights leading straight onto the iconic BMW ‘kidney’ grille. Interaction between electric power & the 3-cylinder motor is also quite remarkable, but don’t worry if running out of charge, simply just fall back on the petrol engine to reach the destination. Re-energising the voltage at your nearest charging point can be conveniently located from the onboard BMW connected drive App, available to everyone leasing their i8 Coupe.
For Business users, leasing an i8 Coupe should make total sense although at first glance this might not be immediately obvious. Yes, an i8 Coupe Lease is not a ‘low cost’ Contract Hire solution, after all the list price is made up from 6 figures, but with CO2 emissions to compete with the greenest of vehicles, Business can more than make up for higher monthly outgoing using both tax efficiency & a greatly reduced benefit in kind tax bill for the driver. When you elect to take out an i8 Coupe Lease, a company car looks like a great decision, thanks to BMW’s hybrid technology & genuine ‘go-green’ credentials.

The BMW i8 Coupe looks like no ordinary electric/hybrid car and it’s this special appearance combined with a performance to match that gives it a truly wide appeal. Eco-friendly, fuel efficient, powerful, handsome and cool all at the same time. It’s a manufacturer and buyers dream!
A look under its futuristic shell reveals a 228bhp, 2.5 litre (3 cylinder) petrol engine. There’s another 129bhp to be found in the electric motor section and when working in tandem, an impressive 0-62mph is certainly achievable. Depending on how you drive the car will determine the results but 130mpg is possible on paper.
To achieve those high numbers, you will need to make full use of the BMW i8’s plug-in feature to ensure that the battery is always fully topped up before you set off. The more the electric drive system is in action, the more likely it is to return good numbers and driving around town, with its stop/start nature plays perfectly into the i8’s strengths. If you want to go all “sporty” then please be aware that the figures will be much lower – but it’s great to have the option.
The chances are, you will love how it all feels once sat behind the wheel. You can certainly feel its sporty nature as you accelerate away but that’s not the end of the fun as this is a pleasure to drive throughout the experience. The 4-wheel drive system is interesting and impressive. The petrol engine controls the rear wheels, delivering excellent control into corners, while the electric motors take care of the front wheels.
The balance of the vehicle is also perfectly, well…balanced, with the various components (batteries and motors) distributed in an even manner, as you would expect. It’s not unreasonable to say that BMW has really delivered something pretty special with the i8 Coupe.
