Since consumer interest for electric and plug-in hybrid vehicles is growing, no doubt thanks to government purchase and lease rebates, more and more models will be available on the Canadian market. Many of those are scheduled to arrive in 2018, and here are those we’re the most excited about.
BMW i8 Roadster
BMW’s strikingly gorgeous plug-in hybrid sports car, the i8 coupe, will serve as the basis for the Roadster version, which still hasn’t been officially unveiled. However, we know that the exterior design will be only slightly modified, so it’ll be just as beautiful as the coupe.
This big six-passenger SUV—the biggest one produced so far by BMW—will be on sale next year. A concept version called the X7 iPerformance has just been revealed at the Frankfurt Auto Show, equipped with a plug-in hybrid powertrain consisting of a turbocharged gasoline engine and one or two electric motors.
