Furthermore, the manufacturer used lightweight materials in order to enhance the performance of 2018 BMW i8. The engineers have paid special attention to power range. We think to new hybrid plug-in system boosts output over 400 horsepower. This number was accomplished thanks to new batteries for the electric motor. The word is about lithium ion batteries which are high-quality. So, the turbo 1.5-liter 3-cylinder petrol engine and an electric motor make the unique plug-in hybrid drive.
Finally, the manufacturer creates inductive charging system in cooperation with Qualcomm. The point is that it uses resonant magnetic induction to transfer energy. It flows between ground pad and collector. However, you can find more details about this topic in the next time.
