Check out the BMW i8 concept at the 2011 LA Auto Show. In person, the car is stunning and you can see the video after the jump. This full-hybrid concept was called the Vision EfficientDynamics hybrid concept car when first announced, but now carries a much simpler BMW i8 title. This comes from the new BMW i “Born Electric” line of cars which will also include the BMW i3. We are sure that these will see the production line in a few years, and hopefully more BMW i models will be announced before this occurs.

Over a year ago BMW announced the concept of the Vision EfficientDyanmics hybrid car, and have now confirmed the production and official name to be the BMW i8. Planned for a 2013 launch, the “i” comes from BMW’s Project i, while the 8 probably refers to the classic BMW sports car 850ci. The sales and marketing director at BMW, Ian Roberson said the new supercar will “redefine the looks of modern supercars”. It was also stated that the price for the BMW i8 will be around $200,000 USD, which is much less than the direct competitor Mercedes SLS E-Cell. Stay tuned for future announcements from BMW regarding their hybrid technology and supercar plans.
