2013 BMW Vision EfficientDynamics Super Car headed for production!



Here's the link
http://www.insideline.com/bmw/2013-b...s-is-a-go.html

Quote:
LISBON, Portugal As proof that car companies no longer make showcars just for giggles, a senior BMW authority out of Munich has assured Inside Line that the Vision EfficientDynamics plug-in pure hybrid 2+2 concept car rolled out in September at the 2009 Frankfurt Auto Show is earmarked for production. No ifs, ands or buts.

Reaction to the 356-horsepower and 590 pound-feet of torque plug-in electric (one lithium-polymer battery stack + two electric motors) with dedicated lighter-weight three-cylinder diesel range-extending engine mounted amidships has been off the charts. Now we're all waiting for more details and, of course, that sticky price issue.

Our executive source goes on to say that total volume is being debated, but that it will fall between 5,000 and 10,000 units. The prototype's powertrain and basic sub-3,000-pound assembly will remain intact, but, says the source, "there will be less of the synthetic glass and more solid structure added to the final design." Uh-oh. We know why these alterations are needed, but does this mean it's going to migrate toward being a sort of sleek Toyota Prius? Let's hope not.

When we asked if this could finally be BMW's second true production supercar after the Giugiaro M1, the response was a firm "quite probably." So maybe our Prius/Honda Insight fears are overreaching. It'd be nice to maintain that 0.22 drag coefficient and the hellacious looks.

IL also learned that the BMW future product engineers are also noodling nonstop with the hybrid drive system in order to make our test of the Vision EfficientDynamics prototype this summer in southern France a real-world high-speed thrill. It should be even quicker than the previously quoted 4.8 seconds to 62 mph.

"And that name that the marketing people forced on us," says our mole, "that's going to change for sure."

I hope it comes true. Actually, I hope it stays close to the concept. I was just in Love with the concept

I am eager to see the final result of this progressive ideology of developing cars... BMW is ahead of the game (just look at the cover of the new R&T)

Remember when BMW said that they are going to give us something based on the Cs concept? What we got? 5 GT.

If BMW is saying we are going to get something based on the VED concept, what we actually are getting is the new Isetta.

... it would be foolish not to mass produce such car and rip the sales... and it is already sold out before it is even produced

An Eco-Super Sports car is part of the Project-i initiative.
And it will fullfill the criteria of the Vision Efficient Dynamics such as a three cylinder combined with an Electric drivetrain that will give it it's power.

It Wont be a V8 and it wont be an M.

As to how BMW see it? It is a groundbreaking new tomorrow of a SuperSports Car relevant for today. However do not expect it tomorrow the Mega City Vehicle is more of a priority.

I don't think they will go with the 3 cylinder diesel power plant as shown in the VED concept. I think (and hope) they will go with an I6 TT had I have heard before. Nevertheless, The final product will be amazing.

That is great news. BMW has needed a supercar in their lineup for some time now...to be able to add an eco-friendly halo car in the same effort is just smart thinking on their part.
