BMW hybrid car gets green light? image

BMW is going ahead to make its hybrid sports car based on the four-seat BMW Vision EfficientDynamics concept study. BMW states that the concept received an overwhelmingly positive reception while it was on display and that a case was made to actually produce the vehicle.

Standing just 1.24m (4 ft) tall the BMW Vision EfficientDynamics is powered by the company’s ActiveHybrid technology already found on the X6 and X7. IN the Vision EfficientDynamics a 3-cylinder turbo diesel with a hybrid synchronous motor at the front axel is combined with a full-hybrid engine at the rear axel for an overall system output of 241 kW/328 bhp.

With this combined power output of 328 horsepower and a o-62 mph time of just 4.8 seconds, this isn’t exactly your grandmother’s hybrid concept. It’s just a concept though, right?

The lithium-polymer rechargeable battery housed centrally in a longitudinal chassis element and designed specially for this hybrid sports car can be fully charged at a conventional power socket within just two and half hours.
