Full BMW i8 Pricing Details


BMW i8

We already knew that the BMW i8 starts at $136,650. At that price, it includes most of the stuff any owner could possibly want, including choice of leather/cloth or perforated leather upholstery, active suspension, 20-inch wheels, power-adjustable and heated front seats, adaptive cruise control, park distance control, a head-up display, navigation with real-time traffic and concierge services.

But if you don’t want an i8 that looks like everyone else’s i8, add the Giga World package (yes, that’s what BMW calls it) for $2,000 and get LED headlamps and a choice of specific colors for the interior leather. Or specify the Tera World package and get all that plus blue seatbelts for $3000. Or go hog wild with the Pure Impulse World package which adds a dark-gray headliner and custom interior colors in addition to all those other goodies. That will set you back a cool $10,800, and about 90% of initial BMW i8 buyers opted for this all-inclusive package reports Car & Driver.

For the base price, the i8 buyer has a choice of turbine style or “W spoke” wheels. Exterior colors are silver, dark gray, or light blue, and all come with the i8’s signature matte-blue accents. Pearl white paint is $1,800 extra. 

Add it all up and a fully optioned i8 goes out the door for just a bit less than $150,000. Is that a lot for an all electric BMW sedan? Lots of anxious buyers don’t seem to think so.
