BMW Vision Efficient Dynamics


“This is THE EXCITING look of Efficient Dynamic”.
Anders Warming,
Head of Exterior Design BMW Automobiles

The new Vision concept of BMW, car for the efficient dynamics philosophy will become a production model in 2013. Sport fans call this concept “The car of the future”.  More efficient and dramatically styled BMW car includes all the green car technologies in one concept: Chevy Volts, Toyota Prius plug-ins and Peugeot diesel hybrid.

Technical description:
• a direct-injection – 1.5-liter,
• 163-hp,
• three-cylinder turbo diesel,
• two electric motors – one per axle,
•  a set of lithium-ion batteries,
• CO2 emissions of 99 grams per kilometer ,
• 155-mph top speed and a 0-60 mph time of less than 4.8 seconds,
•  A software controller that modulate both power to a combined total of 356 horsepower and 590 pound-feet of torque.

The plug-in technology used means the concept car would use a standard 220-volt household outlet to recharge its batteries. A 2.5-hour recharge time is predicted, though on a 380-volt line, BMW says a 44-minute full recharge is possible. Driving range could pass 400 miles with fuel or 31 miles on electricity alone, BMW also adds. This concept “Vision Efficient Dynamics” could provide all-wheel drive in electric-only mode, with battery power twisting its front and rear axles at the same time. The hybrid power train is actually two different applications: a “conventional” hybrid system applied to the back wheels and a hybrid motor hooked to the front wheels.BMW Vision Efficient Dynamics concept’s design has a dynamic look of sports car. This unique sports car is a result of intelligent lightweight technology and aerodynamic efficiency.
