BMW Vision EfficientDynamics Concept Gets the Green Light

A senior BMW authority out of Munich recently told Inside Line that the BMW Vision EfficientDynamics plug-in pure hybrid 2+2 concept car is a go.

The concept that was unveiled at the 2009 Frankfurt Auto Show is powered by a 163-hp 1.5L 3-cylinder turbo-diesel engine and two electric-motors for a total 356-horsepower and 590 pound-feet of torque. The reaction to the concept has been off the charts since it was unveiled. Currently BMW engineers are working on the hybrid system to make it more thrilling to drive. The production model should be faster than the 4.8 sec 0-62 mph time.

BMW is currently debating on how many will be built, but it should range between 5,000-10,000 units.
