The design of the i8 Roadster isn’t exactly the same whereby two shapely cowls are situated just behind the small rear windscreen. Since the i8 Roadster appeared when the i8 Coupe reached mid-life, it gets an improved lithium ion battery. Compared with the pre-facelift i8 Coupe, the rating of the battery has increased from 7.1kWh to 11.6kWh. The price of the i8 Roadster has been set at 12.959 million baht, which is 1.16 million baht more than the pre-facelift i8 Coupe that’s still on sale in Thailand. This may just be another variation of the same theme, but the i8 Roadster isn’t merely a soft-top version of the coupe sibling.
