Possibly the highlight of BMW’s year in 2014 is the launch of the all-new i8 high performance electric car. Not many company car drivers will find it on their chooser lists due to its £99,895 price, but its 25g/km CO2 emissions and 113mpg economy are like no other supercar’s.

The 2+2 seater i8 has an electric motor and 1.5-litre three-cylinder petrol range extender engine, which offer 0-62mph in 4.4 seconds and a 155mph top speed. It can also cover up to 22 miles on battery power alone.
