BMW pulled the covers of the new special-edition version of the BMW i8, on which yellow shares its canvas with accents in Frozen Grey Metallic, on Wednesday, the first media day during the on-going Shanghai international auto show.

A sophisticated application process is used to transfer the paint to the BMW i8's carbon fiber-reinforced plastic bodywork.

The silky, matte shimmer of the finish shines a particularly vivid spotlight on the plug-in hybrid sports car's dynamic lines and flowing surface design.

The model will sport newly designed 20-inch BMW i light-alloy wheels in W-Spoke design with matte-painted surfaces and mixed-size tires.

The car's interior features contrast stitching in yellow for the seat surfaces and center console, underlining the sporty and extravagant looks that dominate the cockpit design of the BMW i8.

Yellow contrast stitching can also be found in the side panel trim and door cards, on the floor mats and in the lower section of the instrument panel.

An anthracite-colored headliner, grey seat belts, ceramic applications for the selector lever and iDrive Controller, and door sill strips with "Edition" inscriptions add the finishing touches to the exclusive interior ambience of the special-edition model.

BMW i cars claim an outstanding global market share.

Like the BMW i8, which has grown into the world's most successful hybrid sports car due to its unmatched and richly enthralling blend of driving pleasure and sustainability, the pure-electric BMW i3 is a constantly expanding presence in international car markets.

Another contributing factor to the international success of BMW i cars are the innovative mobility services make driving an electric car much more pleasurable.

These services are examples of how the BMW i brand is leading the way in establishing sustainable mobility in urban centers and beyond.

With its ChargeNow service, BMW i allows its customers convenient access to more than 6,500 charging stations in 29 countries.

The brand's digital charging service has been quick to exploit - in intelligent, convenient and money-saving ways - the new possibilities in energy supply when charging from a home-mounted wall box.

BMW i embodies holistically sustainable electric mobility at its most relevant in areas far beyond the actual cars.
