So this is why the 2-series debut keeps getting delayed.

Quite like them, different to regular BMW models.

The i8 really looks nice. I love the fact that BMW is going down a different path (electric), but in BMW fashion (it doesn't look like a Prius). Can't wait to see more, though my dream car is the upcoming M4 (had to throw that in).

I believe that this is the new look that is common to the BMW i division - and will not be carried forward to the standard models with double ring designs.

The Prius version is their i3

I think the i8 is meant more to appeal to those with the means and inclination to consider a Tesla?

Just a theory on target groups...I have no idea if i8 will be in same price zone as a Tesla or not.

The i3 and i8 do not have any competitor from Tesla.
