Three pistons combusting internally, a dash of electrons, and lots of aluminum and carbon fiber are the i8 main ingredients. Its 357hp Hybrid powertrain drives all four wheels; in our hands, the i8 hit 60 mph in 4.0 seconds and saw 36 MPG on our 200-mile test run. The poised chasis and sharp steering are good fun, but eco-friendly tries and regenerative braking hinder performance. Familiar controls nestle in a plush cabin; the i8 eye-catching is straight out of a sci-fi flick.
