Consumption and Emission Data.

BMW i8: combined fuel consumption 2,0 l/100 km; combined electricity consumption 14,2 kWh/100 km; combined CO2 emissions 44 g/km (Calculated in the EU test cycle, in combination with standard tyres). All figures are preliminary.
The values of fuel consumptions, CO2 emissions and energy consumptions shown were determined according to the European Regulation (EC) 715/2007 in the version applicable at the time of type approval. The figures refer to a vehicle with basic configuration in Germany and the range shown considers optional equipment and the different size of wheels and tires available on the selected model.
All values are already based on the new WLTP regulation and are translated back into NEDC-equivalent values in order to ensure the comparison between the vehicles. [With respect to these vehicles, for vehicle related taxes or other duties based (at least inter alia) on CO2-emissions the CO2 values may differ to the values stated here.]
