BMW Green Lights Production of Mental-As-Anything Vision EfficientDynamics Concept
BMW has reportedly given the green light to a production run of its Vision EfficientDynamics Concept, you might remember the car from 2009 when it set the motoring world alight with its somewhat, well, dynamic design. The car was originally proposed as a diesel plug-in hybrid, BMW has decided to forgo the diesel for the first model and is aiming to use its straight six gasoline engine with “twinpower” turbo, an eight speed automatic transmission, an electric motor and lithium-ion batteries.
Production will begin in 2013 at BMW’s Leipzig plant and there are plans to produce a range extended electric version of the Vision EfficientDynamics car at some point. Rumour has it that the shape will remain the same as the concept, the car will also retain the 4 seat set up. Further details are set to arrive soon, all we have to go on at the moment is reliable-source-rumours.
