BMW i8 plug-in hybrid goes on sale in July from $135,700

BMW’s new era of sports cars will commence in June when the $135,700 BMW i8 plug-in hybrid goes on sale.

The launch date was announced with minimal fanfare on the BMW USA website, and while examples of the 362hp carbon fiber car will touch down in BMW dealerships, they won’t stay for long as every one is allegedly already spoken for.

Production volumes will be modest for 2014, with around 300 out of a total 1,900 i8s reaching the US in 2014, according to BMW Blog, although that should rise to several thousand during 2015.

While the newly released i3 hatch is the vanguard of the environmental BMW i sub-brand, it’s the rakish i8 that is more emblematic of what BMW is trying to achieve – namely a desirable balance of performance and sustainability.
