MUNICH, Germany — BMW has released a series of videos on its YouTube channel that provide details on the new 2015 BMW i8 plug-in hybrid coupe.

The latest video focuses on the exterior and interior design details of the $136,625 car, which goes on sale in spring in the United States.

Among the design features of the 2015 i8 are twin LED headlamps, scissors-style doors and sustainable materials throughout the cabin.

Another video describes the car's performance, which "is not about power alone," and its fuel efficiency.

The i8's hybrid powertrain includes a 131-horsepower electric motor powering the front wheels and a 231-hp twin-turbo three-cylinder engine in the rear.

The combined output of 362 hp may not sound overwhelming, but because of the car's ultra-light construction — the body is made of aluminum and carbon fiber — the i8 can zip from 0-60 in less than 4.4 seconds.

Edmunds says: The i8 could redefine luxury cars.
