Hybrid autos just don't seem to excite people.
Or, they just tend to be plain old bad.
And just about everyone has built a hybrid at this point. They're just not all that great. And the ones that promise to change that paradigm cost, well, upwards of $1 million bucks. I would say that's mostly unattainable for most commoners.
But BMW could be onto something with its all-new i8.
The only reason I can say this is because it was recently tested while under development and EVO Magazine's Harry Metcalfe had the chance to take a spin at what appears to be a development center.
It's a very interesting thing to hear the vehicle shift from its BMW-esque howl to a eerily silent electric motor that simply zooms along.
Said to cost approximately 100,000 Euros, it will be squaring up against the likes of the Porsche 911.
Considering these factors, we want to know: Is BMW working on the FIRST cool, performance hybrid you actually can buy?
Watch the clip below and weigh in.
