1. BMW i8
BMW has usually been pretty spot-on with its “ultimate driving machines” so when the company says its at work on a new plug-in hybrid sports car, the world took notice. Instead of relying solely on plug-in technology, the i8 also has a three-cylinder gas engine that powers the rear-wheels. This engine can work in tandem with the electric motor powering the front wheels and can help propel the i8 to a 0-60 time of under 5 seconds. The i8 also has a top speed that’s electronically governed at 150 mph. Some expect the BMW i8 to get at least 70 mpg, and both a coupe and spyder have been shown off at the latest auto shows. The i8 is also the flagship car for a new line of BMW products, like the BMW i3.
