BMW has unveiled its BMW i8 Concept Spyder at the Beijing International Auto Show. The BMW i8 Concept Spyder presents the future technology that will soon be used on BMW’s electric and plug-in hybrid cars. The BMW i8 Concept Spyder carries the emblem for the eDrive technology, BMW’s future designation for the drive technology for all electric and plug-in hybrid cars from BMW i. The BMW eDrive has all the components of the electric drivetrain, like the electric motor developed in-house by BMW, the lithium-ion battery, and the intelligent motor management system. The intelligent motor management system allows BMW eDrive cars to accelerate continually until they reach their top speed. The system permits the full torque of the electric motor to be readily available from the jumpstart. BMW eDrive cars offer drivers with extreme agility without compromising driving pleasure. BMW assures that the eDrive cars’ lithium-ion battery cells and the intelligent motor management system offer significant increase in power and range. In the near future, all electric and plug-in vehicles from BMW i will be using the eDrive technology.
