To be unveiled this year

Our spies have taken several photos with the production version of the BMW i8 plug-in hybrid supercar.

BMW will reveal the i8 in production guise sometime this year, along with the smaller and more affordable i3 model. The i8 is set to receive a 2+2 seating layout and will need about 4.8 seconds to perform the 0-62 mph (0-100 km/h) run.

While the concept featured a diesel engine, the production variant is set to receive a three-cylinder turbo gasoline engine which will work together with the hybrid setup. As a reminder, the electric motor of the concept generated 170 hp (125 kW).

The BMW i8 is expected to cost somewhere around 150,000 EUR (about 200,775 USD or 127,833 GBP).

It will lot awesome and very exclusive. BMW is leading the way in what a performance hybrid can do and look like. New technology is alway expensive, so the wealthy consumers will make it available to the masses later on. Once the Fuel Cell arrives then we will see even better technology. With the Fuel cell you essentially have a forever battery as long as you keep pumping in oxygen and hydrogen, that couples with the electric motor will be the ultimate EV of the future. MB and Toyota are rolling out Fuel cells in the near future. Until the infrastructure becomes more readily available, you may have a solar powered hydrogen converter at your home or you can covert natural gas at your home into hydrogen.

A bit too expensive for that sort of performance, don't you think?
