Hi! Dylan here. The major sport oriented car manufacturer, BMW, announced that the new electric sports car, the i8, is being released next spring. The i8 is revolutionary in the world of cars because no car maker has ever made a high performance fully electric car like this one. The i8 can go from 0-60 in about 4.4 second and can hit speeds of up to 155 miles an hour on a completely electric motor. Not only is this car powerful, but it looks amazing too. The body is made of carbon fibre which is 50% lighter than steel and 30% lighter than aluminum. It's CO2 emission is 5,456 miles on a gallon of gas. Attached is a link to the i8 info page on the BMW website. This is Dylan, signing off.
