Following its general victory and two class triumphs in last year’s “International Engine of the Year Awards”, the drive mechanism of BMW i8 has once again won in its class, the 1.4-litre to 1.8-litre displacement classification, in this year’s contest.

The BMW Group’s achievement in the “International Engine of the Year Awards” offers additional confirmation of the performance ability of the “Efficient Dynamics” technology package, which since 2007 has empowered a constant improvement of driving relaxation while at the same time reducing fuel consumption and emanations.

BMW an “old” winner way back in history

The International Engine of the Year Awards were introduced for the first time in 1999, since then a total of 67 class and overall wins have gone to power units developed for BMW models. 
Each year an expert panel of specialists, this time including 63 motoring journalists from about 31 states, chooses the best examples in many classes. They chose BMW i8 as a winner, this year in June.
As a reminder, you have the possibility to rent a luxury car in Dubai and ask for a private driver, in order for you to have a stress-free holiday.

Why is BMW i8 the lucky winner

The plug-in hybrid drive system running the BMW i8 joins the performance of a sports car with the fuel saving of a smaller type.

The 3-cylinder ignition engine in the BMW i8 elaborates 231 HP and drives the rear wheels, while the 131 HP electric motor moves its energy from a lithium-ion battery, which can be charged from a usual domestic power socket and directs its capacity to the front axis. 

This custom-made plug-in hybrid system, settled and manufactured by the BMW Group, allows a range of up to 37 km and a top speed of 120 km/h on electric power, fixed with a “glued-to-the-road” all-wheel driving experience, featured by dominant acceleration and a dynamically influenced distribution of power through forcefully taken turns.
