The BMW i8 seemed to have land in the good books of a couple of drivers too, and emerged on top for Michael Lee. “I think the BMW i8 stole the show today. There’s just this indescribable feeling you get from driving an electrically boosted car, especially one with an acceleration capacity as rapid as the BMW i8’s,” quipped Lee.
In pure-electric mode, the i8 musters a max speed of only 75 mph. Tesla’s Model S has an electric-only top speed of 155 mph.
