BMW i8 Interior Guide

The new flagship BMW i8 is stirring up commotion in the industry – it is the first premium plug-in hybrid combining electric power and a TwinPower Turbo engine exclusively developed by the BMW Group. They say you should not judge a book by its cover. Although the cover alone has us convinced, the sleek BMW i8 interior design is just as exciting and inspiring as the exterior.

BMW i8 Inside is Designed with Environmentally Friendly Materials

BMW i8 Plug-in Hybrid Coupe Chassis and Suspension

Built around the concept of sustainability, components of the BMW i8 mainly come from recycled materials. Carbon-Fiber-Reinforced-Plastic (CFRP) constructed passenger cells are lined with leather exclusively from Germany, Austria, and Switzerland. The leather was processed with natural tanning agents such as olive leaf extracts.

Elements in the BMW i8 such as the roof liner, floor mats, floor covering, and the stimulating accent strips are produced with an environmentally friendly process and resource. Recycled bottles, reusable materials from scrap vehicles, and other recovered materials are also utilized to construct various interior parts of the i8.

Innovative foam plastic elements are used to construct the air conditioning ducts which further reduce vehicle weight. The look and feel of premium quality, however, were never compromised.

BMW i8 Interior 2+2 Seating

BMW i8 features the sports car 2+2 seating, and this is the design of two front seats plus two back seats. Due to the low seating design, passengers get into the car by “sliding” into the cockpit.

Comfort is also exceptional, although we wished that the seats come with lumbar support. However, the ergonomic low-seating arrangements are supposedly designed to hold the drivers in position even during sharp turns.
