SERVICE TOWBARS LUBRICATION DECKS 2146413AA High-tech supercars FROM Page 22 Electric twins: Striking i8, left, and i3 designs will reach production in 2014 and 2013 respectively. An upwardly mobile, technology savvy demographic will inevitably be drawn to the i3. High-tech is very much part of its functionality, with the car's full ability only being realised through special smartphone (this is where the iPhone and iPad might come in) technologies and applications which will include the ability to find everything from the best sushi place in town to the nearest parking space, car- sharing opportunity and charging stations and even a way of getting from A to B by several modes of transport should congestion and the car's range deem a door-to-door journey behind the wheel a little impractical. Either way, BMW says the system doesn't just work for the driver so much as de-stress them into the bargain -- no small achievement if you're a regular city or suburban commuter. The i3 is also designed to feature a small internal-combustion range- extender in a model known as the i-Rex in order to dispel any range anxiety issues for those not quite ready to make their own deep dive into pure electric power. The i8 is BMW's new tech supercar. It may pack the same 127kW electric motor as the wee i3, but the i8's plug- in hybrid powertrain is an all-wheel- driven set up, with the electric motor powering the front axle, while a transversely-mounted 164kW/300Nm 1.5-litre three-cylinder turbocharged petrol engine drives the rear wheels. The two power units talk and connect with each other through the car's low-mounted quaintly-titled central ''energy tunnel'' which also contains the battery cells. It's not hard to see where the car's sub-five second zero to 100kmh time comes from: the combined power output is a massive 291kW, but instead of a 14 to 15L/100km fuel economy rating, the i8 returns an astonishing sub 3L/100km on the combined EU economy cycle. The car will run for almost 35km on electricity alone and can share or separate its petrol or electric drive according to load and need. But the real star of the show is the i3 for the simple reason that it's more likely to be affordable and useable in the real world.
