First deliveries of the BMW i8 show off Laser Light technology

Last week, eight lucky customers around the world were the first to receive (and drive) the BMW i8, a hybrid sports car that has been turning heads since 2011 when it was announced and also featured as Tom Cruise’s getaway car in Mission Impossible 4.

Now, drivers are getting to experience the BMW i8 and its anticipated Laser Light technology first-hand. Not only do the headlights use less energy than a traditional headlight, they also shine twice as bright and far – up to 600 metres.
