TopGear.com.ph Philippine Car News - BMW begins delivery of its  i8 hybrid supercar to its customers

BMW has started the delivery of its i8 plug-in hybrid supercar, with the first eight units going to customers in the carmaker's home country of Germany.

"In November of last year, we welcomed the first i3 customers here at BMW Welt," said BMW Group's sales and marketing boss for Germany, Roland Kruger. "Today, we are continuing the BMW i success story with the first eight i8 customers worldwide. As 'the first of a new era,' the BMW i8 combines the sustainable design of a carbon-fiber body with a powerful plug-in hybrid."

According to BMW, the i8 "combines the driving performance of a high-performance sports car with the fuel consumption and emissions of a small car."

Delivery of the i8 to BMW's main international markets will reportedly begin this month.

Now, the question is: Has somebody from the Philippines already placed an order for the i8?
