BMW diesel-electric concept

BMW will show a radical diesel-electric hybrid concept car at the Frankfurt auto show in Germany this month that will give a glimpse into the brand’s technical and design plans.The Vision EfficientDynamics concept is the first car created under the leadership of new BMW design chief Adrian van Hooydonk, who replaced Chris Bangle when the controversial American resigned this year.

The remarkable-looking car melds BMW‘s signature twin-kidney grille with the classic Coke-bottle plan view and intricate surfaces to manage airflow for maximum efficiency and performance.

The 2+2 concept uses a 1.5-liter, three-cylinder turbodiesel and the two-mode hybrid system General Motors developed with BMW and Mercedes. The electric and diesel powerplants could combine to accelerate the concept to 60 m.p.h. in 4.8 seconds, with a top speed of 155 m.p.h.
