It comes straight out of the future - and into your driveway, the BMW i8 series offers space-age design with high-performance engineering. The plug-in electric models come in either a sporty two-seat I8 Roadster or a four-seat I8 Coupe, so you can enjoy an elite, sustainable contract hire driving experience.
The compact BMW i8 Roadster has a folding fabric roof that can be retracted in 16 seconds at speeds of up to 31mph. Both models have innovative butterfly doors and a V-shaped ‘black belt’ design element that runs the length of the car. There’s only one trim level available for each model, but you won’t be left wanting with full leather upholstery, 20-inch W-spoke alloy wheels and electrically-adjustable seats.

Leasing a BMW I8 Series
The BMW I sub-brand was founded in 2011 with the aim of manufacturing plug-in electric cars. The Coupe was released in 2014 as a flagship car for the series, with the Roadster joining the ranks in 2020. Both current generations have BMW’s LifeDrive architecture which pairs a lightweight aluminium chassis with a carbon-fibre passenger compartment.
With the BMW i8 Series, you’ll be left wondering how BMW has managed to create a high-performance engine that is environmentally friendly. The innovative hybrid system powers the front wheels electrically, and a 1.5-litre turbo engine feeds the rear wheels. The i8 uses an eight-speed automatic gearbox and will return an impressive 138 mpg. The Roadster can accelerate from 0-62mph in just 4.6 seconds, while the Coupe shaves a bit more off with a time of 4.4 seconds. Despite all that power, you can rest easy that both models emit under 50g/km of CO2.
The interior technology in your BMW i8 lease matches the space-age design, with interior mood lighting and a Harman Kardon stereo. The infotainment system for your lease car is operated through an 8.8-inch digital display, with functions including sat nav, DAB radio and Bluetooth. The driver is also treated to a head-up display with all your instrument cluster details.
Your new BMW i8 Series lease comes with a BMW manufacturer’s three-year warranty and access to their servicing and repairs. For more information, visit the BMW website.
