Developed by BMW Group engineers, the 2014 BMW i8's hybrid system includes an all new rear-mounted 1.5-liter 3-cylinder TwinPower Turbo gasoline engine that hurls its 228 horsepower and 236 pounds per foot of torque to its rear wheels via its six-speed automatic transmission. That transmission also works with a compact, lightweight, forward-positioned electric motor that provides its own 129 horsepwer and 184 pounds per foot of torque to the 2014 BMW i8's front wheels. That electric motor gets its power from a liquid-cooled lithium-ion battery pack positioned down the 2014 BMW i8's central tunnel. All of that together delivers zero to 60 in 4.5 seconds.
