We here at Passport BMW love the i8 Plug-In Sports Car concept, but we'll admit that we were more than a bit in the dark ever since it was first announced. BMW hasn't exactly gone out of its way to provide updates on where the i8 was in terms of being production ready, but we still remained hopeful that some glimmer of hope would come to hint at its progress.
And that's exactly what we got when the BMW i8 concept was caught traversing some snowy terrain recently. After all, why would BMW bring the i8 out for such extensive road testing if they simply planned to let the concept fade into the long line of previous concept models? What's more, some are even speculating that the i8 concept could be brought into production by as soon as 2014. This might seem like a long ways off now, but in the auto industry it's actually quite fast.
And how exactly did the BMW plug-in hybrid fare in the snow? Quite well. Feel free to check out the full video at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qMoDjF_Ef1k, then leave us a comment to let us know how excited you are for the BMW i8.
