With deliveries of the BMW i8 beginning, more and more information about the vehicle is becoming available. On Sunday, July 20, Shmee150 released a video of his adventure in the new BMW i8 at the official UK launch party in Mayfair, London.

In this video, Shmee gives us the chance to not only hear the sound of the i8’s turbocharged inline-three engine, but also the absence of sound when in full-electric mode. What’s more, the soundproofing in this car is very well-done, allowing for an incredibly peaceful and smooth drive when in EV mode. This video can be viewed above.

What’s more, Shmee also uploaded a video today that takes an in-depth look at the new BMW Mobile iApp for the i8 and i3 vehicles. This app allows owners to see their car’s settings and charge state. With this app, owners can set up charging timers in order to ensure that the car is charged in the morning. Be sure to watch this video below.

Both of these videos really show how the BMW i8 is a technological breakthrough for the German company, so be sure to give them both a watch, and stick with us as more information comes out.
