2015 BMW i8
The 2015 BMW i8 is an incredible plug-in hybrid sports car for both gas and electric connoisseurs. Beneath its exquisitely sculpted, two-tone exterior you will find a TwinPower Turbo 3-cylinder engine tucked in its radical rear and an all-electric motor under the fiendishly futuristic frontend. It takes two and a half hours for its battery to fully charge, and it has a 330-mile combined range. The ultra-modern BMW seats four and offers plenty of pizzazz with its butterfly wing doors. And now you can even use your Apple Watch to control and adjust its functions remotely before leaving your house.
