Ontime have been chosen to transport BMW’s most advanced sports car ever – the BMW i8 – around the UK. One of the reasons we were selected by BMW (UK) Ltd was because we are the owners of the only electric hybrid transporter in the UK – the perfect eco-friendly solution to delivering BMW’s new plug-in hybrid sports car.
We’ve delivered the car to a number of high profile locations, not least the exquisite, state-of-the-art BMW showroom on London’s prestigious Park Lane.
The BMW i8 has made an appearance at the recent BMW PGA Golf Championship at Wentworth Club. This year’s event, part of the European tour, was won by a jubilant Rory McIlroy. The championship also featured a celebrity golf tournament featuring over 50 celebrities teeing off alongside the professionals. Featuring stars from the sporting, entertainment and music industries meant huge crowds gathered, generating some great exposure for the BMW i8.
The new BMW i8 also recently steered its way up the famous hill at the Goodwood Festival of Speed, showcasing the searing acceleration of this revolutionary sports car. The BMW i8 uses a three-cylinder turbocharged petrol engine, with a 1.5-litre capacity, in conjunction with an electric motor that takes BMW’s Efficient Dynamics philosophy to a new high. Utilising both power sources enables the sprint from zero to 62mph to take just 4.4 seconds, going on to an electronically limited top speed of 155mph. All the while combined fuel consumption stands at 135mpg and CO2 emissions come in at 49g/km.
With hybrid cars looking set to be the cars of the future, the investment by Ontime in a cutting edge electric hybrid car transporter ensures we stay one step ahead of the competition and shows our commitment to contributing to a greener future.
