BMW EfficientDynamics Technology
BMW Group will present its new concept car Vision EfficientDynamics at the
Geneva Motor Show on March 4. It is the first time that a 4-cylinder diesel
engine has been combined with BMW ActiveHybrid Technology in a large Sports
Activity Vehicle. With an average fuel consumption of 6.5 litres per 100
kilometres in the EU test cycle and a CO2 emission level of 172 grams per
kilometer, BMW Vision EfficientDynamics is the most efficient vehicle of
its size in the competitive environment of the BMW X models.
BMW Vision EfficientDynamics Concept Car
This BMW Vision EfficientDynamics concept car will be presented at the
Frankfurt Motor Show. This vehicle is a Plug-In Hybrid, with two
drive-trains, a 3-cylinder Diesel engine, and an
electric drive - combining fuel efficiency and driving pleasure with the
acceleration of an M3. TheAutoChannel.com has the complete story.
2010 BMW 5-Series (F10) - Renderings by Theophilus Chin
This is officially my first youtube video. I hope you all can give me
feedback on how to improvise my video and my renderings. I'm also wondering
what music will go well with a clip that's less than 2 minutes long.
Anyway in this video, you'll see my rendering of the next BMW 5-Series
(F10) based on the BMW 5-Series GT concept shown at the Geneva Auto Salon
2009. This version of the 5-Series has shorter wheelbase than that of the
GT concept. It is slightly lower too. I kept the rear lights, but made a
boot out of the GTs hatch. The rear bumper was reshaped, along with door
frames and production friendly side mirrors. The wheels are from the

Special Paris Auto Show 2010!
This is the BMW "Vision EfficientDynamics" concept car that was presented
back in 2009 at the Frankfurt auto show. Why did I make a video of it if
it's not "new"? Simply because I kinda like the design, the colors and how
you can see inside...! This is a green car : it's electric and doesn't need
much energy to run and have performances that can almost outmatch its
non-green rivals. This is a concept car, of course. But maybe one day, who

BMW i8 Full Review - The all new
The engine and electric motor combine for 362 horsepower, 420 pound-feet
of torque and all-wheel-drive performance, all integrated into a chassis
that is 10 pounds lighter and 1.5 inches longer than the 3 Series. The i8
also delivers stellar handling thanks to 50/50 weight distribution and a
low, centrally mounted battery pack, although standard 20-inch wheels seem
like a suspect choice for maximizing corner-to-corner performance.
BMW says the i8 can also travel 22 miles and reach a top speed of 75 mph on
electrons alone. Uncorked with the gasoline engine in the lead, it will
reach a top speed of 155 mph. Sounds like a pretty good future to us.
Lightweight construction helps bring lofty performance within reach,
notably an aluminum chassis, chemically hardened glass (similar to that
used in smartphones) and extensive use of carbon-fiber-reinforced panels
within the 2+2 passenger cabin. Those plus-2 rear seats are small, however,
smaller than even a Porsche 911's, and are best considered auxiliary
luggage space. Even settling into the front seats requires some practice
given its unique scissor-lift-style doors.
We drove a recent i8 prototype and found the i8's easy thrust in
all-electric mode a close match for the Tesla Model S. In its Sport mode
(there are also Comfort and Eco Pro settings), the i8 further awakens,
feeling light, agile and averse to body roll. The hybrid never quite
overwhelms with acceleration, but it also never feels winded, the electric
motor's torque nicely covering for the small turbo as the latter winds up to deliver its power
Whatever the i8 lacks in competitive performance, it won't lack for style.
Its low-slung profile is punctuated by standard U-shaped LED headlights.
You can even order the i8 with laser headlights where regulations allow
(sorry, U.S. shoppers). Inside, a multitiered and layered cockpit design
uses recycled materials and naturally treated leather for upholstery and
panel surfaces Like the smaller i3 electric car, the i8 will offer three
trim levels -- Mega, Giga and Tera -- all with varying degrees of sport and
The 2014 BMW i8 arrives in the spring and starts around $136,000. That's
well above its most obvious target, the Tesla Model S, and that kind of
money also buys a lot of Porsche 911. Performance aficionados won't likely
be swayed and may even look across the BMW lineup to the "M" cars. But for
the hybrid buyer seeking power, performance and efficiency through a lower
profile, the 2014 BMW i8 presents a unique choice.
Check back for more information on the 2014 BMW i8, including specs,
driving impressions and buying advice as it becomes available.
