BMW Vision EfficientDynamics Concept Car

Bmw-concept

  • Looks like: A killer whale mated with a Lamborghini
  • Defining characteristics: 62 mpg and 0-60 mph less than 5 seconds
  • Ridiculous features: BMW bothers to fit two golf bags in this
  • Chance of being mass-produced: None, but it’s nice to look at

In a world that is afraid to rollout too many far-flung concept cars, BMW is making a splash with a radical one for the upcoming Frankfurt Motor Show. Yes, the name is clunky – Vision EfficientDynamics concept car doesn’t roll off the tongue – but the car is as streamlined as it gets with a drag coefficient of 0.22. Toyota got the 2010 Prius down to 0.25 from 0.26.

Of course, that’s probably where you want to stop comparing the Prius to the BMW. Despite the fact that the combustion engine is a turbo three-cylinder diesel, when it’s combined with the two electric motors in this hybrid system the total car output is equivalent to 356 horsepower and 590 pounds-feet of torque. BMW says the concept could hit 62 mph in 4.8 seconds while returning 62.6 mpg.

The concept can use just the electric motors and be recharged via a household electrical socket.

The concept is supposed to show the future promise of BMW’s hybrid tech that will be officially launched via two production models, the ActiveHybrid X6 and 7 Series, which go on sale this fall. More photos of BMW’s anti-Prius are below.
