The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.4
7.6
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2014 BMW i8 is a new kind of sport coupe--an ultra-efficient one with advanced materials, electric and gas propulsion, and a lot more--and buyers will have to recalibrate their idea of what performance means to appreciate it fully. The 2014 ELR brings extended-range electric-car virtues to the Cadillac lineup, but its Volt-like appeal diminishes as the price balloons.
