Bavarian automakers has officially revealed details and photos of the new BMW Vision EfficientDynamics Concept car. Making its world debut at the Frankfurt Motor Show, the 2+2 seater concept is described as a visualization of BMW ActiveHybrid technology; an icon for prospect high performance forceful dynamics and pouring pleasure all with a innovative level of efficiency.
The vehicle is powered by a three-cylinder turbodiesel engine combined with two electric motors. It has a top speed of 250 kilometers per hour and can do 0-100 kilometers per hour in 4.8 seconds. Where the vehicle really excels is in its emissions output. While running on diesel, the vehicle has a fuel consumption of 3.76 litres per 100 kilometers or around 99 grams of CO2 per kilometer.
As a plug-in hybrid, BMW Vision EfficientDynamics is able to cover the entire fuel consumption drive cycle under electric power alone. Taking the sources of energy used for generating the electric power consumed into account (EU electricity mix), this reduces the CO2 emission rating to just 50 grams per kilometre.
Electric power is generated without the slightest increase in fuel consumption through Brake Energy Regeneration. Energy is stored in 98 lithium polymer cells. The car is able to cover a distance of approximately 50 km (31 mi) in the electric mode alone.
Using birth materials and innovative light technology the interior demonstrates the hottest in technology such as a 3-dimensional Head-Up Display. The roof and door insert made of polycarbonate glass automatically become darker as a reactionary party of incoming light. Doors opening to the border like Mercedes SLC Gullwing. Formula 1 influenced aerodynamics render a CX drag coefficient optimised to just 0.22.
