BMW first launched the i8 back in 2014, making waves in the hybrid vehicle world on account to the car's super slick design - gone were the fuddy eco-cars of old.
BMW has released a teaser of its third model for the BMW i family, the BMW i8 Roadster. This success secured the i-series' future at BMW; after all, it became the world's best-selling plug-in electrified sports auto.
The Roadster is expected to use the eDrive system as seen on the i8 coupe, but this will be in its updated form, given that the fixed-roof version is set to receive a mid-life cycle update, possibly later this year.

The video release shows the auto wearing heavy camouflage, though the fundamental looks and design appear to be near-identical to those of the standard i8. "The ultimate progressive sports vehicle is now ready to spread its wings".
Unfortunately, the auto is still largely shrouded in mystery. However, expect to pay a serious premium; the normal BMW i8 will set you back around £105,500, so the roadster edition will nearly certainly cost a fair whack more than that price.
The new i8 and i8 Roadster will debut in September at the Frankfurt Motor Show, with both models going on sale in early 2018.
