Munich - The BMW i8 hybrid sports car caused a stir with its outlandish styling when it was first revealed back in 2013 but if you were expecting a mild evolution for the second generation (as is the norm in the auto industry) think again.
A BMW executive has promised that the next-generation i8 will be just as radical (for its time) as the original was.
Product management head Peter Henrich recently told Autocar that, given what a tremendous job the original i8 had done in transforming the industry, “It would definitely not be appropriate to just have a little modification or improvement.
“We need to be very creative again,” Henrich asserted.
Little else is known about the i8’s follow up or when it will see light of day, but word on the street is that it should appear sometime in the early 2020s.
