Excited by BMW's new Vision EfficientDynamics concept car? So are we. But while the rest of us have to wait another couple of weeks to see the future-think show car at the Bavarian automaker's show stand in Frankfurt, one lucky enthusiast got an early glimpse while visiting the company's flagship BMW Welt in Munich.
Looks like he got quite an eyeful too, as Car and Driver has a comprehensive gallery of the car shot from every angle while BMW was apparently doing some photography and video work itself. Follow the link to check it out.

      This BMW could be a step in the right direction away from traditional hybrids. That's good, because cars like the Prius aren't nearly as "green" as they have us believe.

        I fail to see how the depletion of rare Earth metals equates to them NOT being green. Their goal was to reduce emissions and that's EXACTLY what they've done. It's not like these elements are being used SOLELY for hybrid cars and it's NOT just the Prius that's using these materials, ALL hybrids do.

        I don't see you complaining about every standalone CD player, DVD player, Blu-Ray Player, Computer CD-ROM, DVD or BD drives, the discs themselves, laser hair removal centers, or military applications that ALL use the same materials.

        I think the point of the article tgriffith linked is that there are other ways to reduce emissions without having to resort to hybrids and their use of rare earth metals. Hybrids are less popular in europe largely because use of small efficient 4 cylinder diesel engines accomplish similar objectives in with a potentially smaller footprint.

        because being green requires low environmental impact and if you have to stripmine the rainforest to build millions of the things a year it its kinda counterproductive
