Over the last five years, it looked like big-buck hybrid supercars were becoming a trend. Models were introduced by many automakers, including Ferrari, McLaren, and Porsche, and buyers clamored for the sexy electrified sports cars. One comparatively affordable — yet obviously exotic — option is the 2019 BMW i8.
First introduced back in 2014, the BMW i8 and more affordable i3, were among the automaker's first hybrids. Since their introduction, however, BMW has offered a wide range of electrified models for shoppers seeking a greener option. Today, BMW's hybrid portfolio includes the i3, 530e, and 745e, but the low-slung i8 remains its most expensive and exciting hybrid model.
