Rinspeed's first underwater Car
Rinspeed will present its new sQuba, the worlds first diving car, at the
Geneva Motor Show (March 6-16). The car is not only able to drive on roads
autonomously with a push of a button (thus without a driver, passenger or
further assistance), but can also transform into an amphibious vehicle
which can be submerged in water up to 10 meters (33 feet). An electric
motor with powerful torque drives the rear wheels, while the propulsion on
the water is ensured by two propellers in the stern and two powerful jet
drives in the bow propelling the vehicle under water while diving. When
underwater, the driver and passenger are enclosed in the vehicle thanks to
light weight body components made of futuristic Carbon Nano Tubes and are
supplied with fresh breathing air by the self-contained on-board system.

The BMW i8 price is expected to cost more than €100,000 (US$122,800 or
GB£78,000), according to BMW head of sales and marketing, Ian Robertson.
BMW i is a sub-brand of BMW which has been created to commercialize low
In February 2011 BMW announced that the new sub-brand for the
commercialization of the vehicles produced under Project i will be called
BMW i. The first two production models will be the battery electric BMW i3,
formerly known as the Mega City Vehicle, with a range of 150 kilometres (93
mi), and the plug-in hybrid BMW i8, which is the production version of the
BMW Vision Efficient Dynamics concept unveiled at the 2009 Frankfurt Motor
Show and has an all-electric range of 35 kilometres (22 mi). Production of
both BMW i8 plug-in electric cars is scheduled to start in Leipzig in 2013.
Concept versions of the i3 and BMW i8 were presented at the 2011 Frankfurt
Motor Show. In August 2011 BMW announced the BMW i5, a new midrange
model for its new electric car line. The i5 will use the same drivetrain as
the BMW i8 and is scheduled for 2016. The first BMW i store opened in
June 2012 at BMW's London Park Lane showroom. The carmaker premiered an
updated version of the BMW i3 concept electric car and unveiled its i
Pedelec electric bicycle concept.
The BMW i8, first introduced as the BMW Concept Vision Efficient Dynamics,
is a plug-in hybrid under development by BMW. The initial concept BMW i8
was unveiled at the 2009 Frankfurt Motor Show, and the BMW i8 concept
car destined for production was unveiled at the 2011 Frankfurt Motor
Show. The BMW i8 has a 7.2 kWh lithium-ion battery pack which delivers
an all-electric range of 35 km (22 mi).
In 2010 BMW announced the mass production of the Concept Vision Efficient
Dynamics in Leipzig beginning in 2013 as the BMW i8. The BMW i8 is part
of BMW's "Project i" and will be marketed as a new brand, BMW i, sold
separately from BMW or Mini. The BMW i3 and the BMW i8 will be the first
models available from 2013. Other i models will follow.
The BMW i8 concept plug-in hybrid electric vehicle unveiled at the 2011
Frankfurt Motor Show has a 7.2 kWh (26 MJ) lithium-ion battery pack that
allows an all-electric range of 35 km (22 mi). Its top speed is
electronically limited to 250 km/h (160 mph) and is expected to go from 0
to 100 km/h (0 to 60 mph) in 4.6 seconds. Under normal driving conditions
the BMW i8 is expected to deliver 80 mpg-US (2.9 L/100 km; 96 mpg-imp)
under the European cycle. A full charge of the battery will take less than
2 hours using 220V.
The BMW i8 combines the electric drive system of the BMW i3, with a 96 kW
(129 hp) electric motor located in the front axle powering the front wheels
and at the rear is a turbocharged
1.5-liter 3-cylinder gasoline engine producing 164 kW (220 hp) and 300 N·m
(220 lbf·ft) of torque. The result BMW i8 is a combined output of 260 kW
(349 hp). All four wheels provide regenerative braking. The location of the
BMW i8 battery pack in the energy tunnel gives the BMW i8 a low centre of
gravity, enhancing its dynamics. Together with the positioning of the motor
and engine over the axles, the result is an optimum 50/50 weight
distribution for the BMW i8.
In July 2011 the BMW i8 won the 2012 North American Concept Vehicle of the
BMW i8 BMW New Brand + The 1st Car For 2013
Sustainable Mobility for Megacities
In megacities around the world, a need has arisen for a new kind of
sustainable personal mobility that works on many levels. It has to have
minimal environmental impact, both on the city's streets and on the planet
itself. It has to deliver an effortless, and comfortable driving
experience. And it has to intelligently integrate personal mobility within
the wider public transport system. The BMW i3 has been created from scratch
with all these needs in mind. Whatever questions the megacity may ask, this
electric car always has an intelligent, sustainable, beautifully designed
Advanced, lightweight construction
The BMW i3 integrates the newly-developed drive components into a
completely new vehicle architecture. Lightweight construction throughout
the car and innovative use of CFRP (Carbon Fibre Reinforced Plastic) offers
significant benefits to the customer and the environment.

2010 Mercedes-Benz Biome Concept
PLEASE SUBSCRIBE TO THIS CHANNEL:
At the 2010 Los Angeles Design Challenge, the designers from the
Mercedes-Benz Advanced Design Studios in Carlsbad, California, surprised
everyone with a revolutionary vision. Taking their inspiration from nature,
they designed a vehicle which is fully integrated into the ecosystem, from
the moment of its creation right through to the end of its service life.
The Mercedes-Benz BIOME Concept grows in a completely organic environment
from seeds sown in a nursery. Out on the road the car emits pure oxygen,
and at the end of its lifespan it can be simply composted or used as
"As the inventor of the motor car, we wanted to illustrate the vision of
the perfect vehicle of the future, which is created and functions in
complete symbiosis with nature. The Mercedes-Benz BIOME Concept is a
natural technology hybrid, and forms part of our earth's ecosystem. It
grows and thrives like the leaves on a tree" according to Hubert Lee, Head
of the Mercedes-Benz Advanced Design Studios in Carlsbad. This year the
competition had called for the creation of a vision of a safe and
comfortable 2+2 compact car featuring good handling and a first-class
design, and weighing only 1,000 lbs (around 454 kg/kerb weight).
Mercedes-Benz symbiosis - a partnership with nature
The Mercedes-Benz BIOME Concept symbiosis vehicle is made from an
ultralight material called BioFibre and tips the scales at just 875.5 lbs
(around 394 kg). This material is significantly lighter than metal or
plastic, yet more robust than steel. BioFibre is grown from proprietary DNA
in the Mercedes-Benz nursery, where it collects energy from the sun and
stores it in a liquid chemical bond called BioNectar4534. As part of this
process, the vehicle is created from two seeds: The interior of the BIOME
grows from the DNA in the Mercedes star on the front of the vehicle, while
the exterior grows from the star on the rear. To accommodate specific
customer requirements, the Mercedes star is genetically engineered in each
case, and the vehicle "grows" when the genetic code is combined with the
seed capsule. The wheels are grown from four separate seeds.
The Mercedes-Benz BIOME Concept is powered by BioNectar4534, which is
stored in the BioFibre material of the chassis, interior, and wheels. In
addition, Mercedes-Benz has developed a technology to equip trees with
special receptors which can collect the excess solar energy and turn it
into BioNectar4534. This creates a direct link with nature's energy sources
and acts as an incentive to cover mobility energy requirements through more
trees and at the same time maintain natural resources. Like plants, the
Mercedes-Benz symbiosis vehicle also produces oxygen, thereby contributing
to improving air quality. At the end of its service life, the Mercedes-Benz
BIOME can be fully composted or used as building material. Thanks to the
exclusive use of green technologies, the BIOME vehicle thus blends
seamlessly into the ecosystem.
(ENG) BMW i3 - First Drive, Test Drive and Review
BMW is launching its long-awaited first mass-produced electric model: the
i3. It is the first car from a new series, designed to appeal to a new
The i3 has a theoretical range of around 150-160 kilometers, but in real
life 120-130 seems more manageable. The car can also be equipped with an
optional petrol range extender. However unlike most other electric cars,
BMW i3 is fast and relatively fun to drive on European roads.
It might not be the Isetta everyone thought it would be, but this could be
the future of mobility.
On 17 April BMW i3 received two awards:
- 2014 World Car Design of the Year
- 2014 World Green Car
as part of the World Car of the Year (WCOTY) programme.

BMW i8 - For the pseudo-environmentalist billionaire in every one of us
I was thoroughly underwhelmed by BMW's latest concept on show at the
Auckland Museum today.
It has similar hybrid technology but a lower all-electric range than a
Chevrolet Volt, yet it costs $270,000 USD more.
Or think of it as an all-electric Tesla Roadster, but with less range, less
power, less acceleration, less style, less reliability - but with higher
emissions, and at twice the price.
The styling is a personal thing, but I found it too weird to gain
mass-acceptance. Perhaps thankfully, the finished product will look
Still, God only knows what market this car is aimed at. Even so, by 2014
(when this vehicle is ready for production) the competition will have
soared ahead with more practical, long-range all-electric vehicles.
For example, the Tesla Model S is a visual masterpiece with an all electric
range of 300 miles (482 kilometres) - and full-scale production starts in
You'd better think fast BMW.
