2015 BMW i8 Hybrid

The 2015 BMW i8 is the German manufacturer's first plug-in hybrid, focusing on both performance and fuel economy in equal parts. Brauer expects the price to exceed $150,000 when it hits the market.

"A pure electric driving range of 20 miles will be supplemented by a small, 3-cylinder turbocharged engine mounted behind the passenger compartment," Brauer said. "Despite the diminutive powertrain, the i8 will hit 60 mph in less than 5 seconds and get 70 miles per gallon."
