Here is a video for the BMW Vision EfficientDynamics, a model that continues to take shape. In this BMW Vision EfficientDynamics video they are talking about the designers who developed the prototype and are now working to bring it on the road. As the movie explains, responsibility and respect for the environment have been the very foundation on which the car has taken-and is-still taking shape.
“Innovation is only when a group of people share their ideas,” says Jürgen Greil, a mechanical engineer who worked on the BMW Vision EfficientDynamics. And this is the human side of design, something that this video points out with great force.
The price for BMW Vision EfficientDynamics could be around €140,000 to €175,000 euro, justified by the refined hybrid platform from the frame and carbon fiber. The 2 +2 coupe that was shown at the Paris Motor Show 2010 and was equipped with a 1.5 three-cylinder turbo diesel and two electric motors, capable of delivering a total of 328 bhp and accelerates from 0 to 100 in 4.8 seconds while consuming just 3.8 l/100 km diesel fuel and emitting 99 g/km of CO2 on the combined cycle.
The Vision EfficientDynamics, with energy recovery during braking of course, relies on a lithium polymer battery pack can be recharged on a regular outlet in two hours and provide a range of electricity about 50 km (overall range is 700).
According to reports from BMW, the leaders would deliberate the draft BMW Vision EfficientDynamics, which will give birth to a sports car with hybrid drive and title (even temporarily), or i1 i100. The Bavarian coupe will be equipped with heat engine 1.5 petrol three-cylinder 184 hp, matched with two 95 HP electric drive one for a total output of 400 hp. Such abundance – run by a dual-clutch gearbox – will reach one hundred per hour from a standing start in 4 seconds flat, despite the consumption of only 4 liters per hundred kilometers, the range is estimated at 400 kilometers. The hybrid architecture will also manage the tension between the two axles, so as to turn the car in 4WD with the help of electric motors.
From the BMW Vision EfficientDynamics is then derived a Motorsport version, called M1 and pushed by the then six-cylinder turbo for M3 F30. Still being examined by the idea of using a more conventional naturally aspirated V8 with a power of 450 hp. Almost certainly the presence of an additional 100 hp insured by a double electric motor.
