2009 BMW Vision EfficientDynamics Concept – Click above for high-res image gallery

A production sports car based on last year's BMW Vision EfficientDynamics concept will reportedly debut at the 2011 Frankfurt Motor Show and come to market by 2013. According to Germany's AutoBild, the car which they refer to as the I100 (as part of BMW's project I which is also spawning the MegaCity EV) will be powered by a hybrid powertrain much like the one in the concept.

A 1.5-liter three-cylinder engine (possibly a diesel) paired with an electric motor based on the architecture of BMW's mild hybrid 7 Series would drive the rear wheels, while a second motor would drive the front wheels. A lithium ion battery pack is earmarked to provide electrical energy storage, although it's not clear if the plug-in capability of the concept would be retained.

According to Autobild, it's also possible that we'll see an M variant of this car using the 450 horsepower twin-turbo inline-six from the next generation M3 along with set of supercapacitors instead of a lithium battery pack.

      Say what you will about BMW designs, even the flame Bangle butt stuff; BMW's are always on the fore-front of design and imagination. Just like the old Jaguar's and Mercedes's you know a Bimmer from any direction. I must say this design strikes the same cord in me as the recent Citroen concept 4 dr car. I would love to have both of them in my garage.

      supercapacitors - are these the Ion Flux variation?
      • 5 Years Ago
      I looked at the renders on Autobilt.

      Most of the cladding is dumb. However the overall shape and the entire front design is spot on. BMW should just outright steal these designs.

      The face on that car is just awesome. It looks like its bearing down on it's prey.

      It's been a long time since I "wanted" a BMW. I want that face on the R8 competitor.

      C'mon BMW, you can do it.

      This is all well and good but when will BMW provide me with what i really need; the BMW XI100M.

      "BMW Efficient Dynamics sports car in 2013, M version too!"

      wait... this is competing with the R8 yes? shouldn't it inherently come as an M variant by default?

        Tron or not, this car is so amazing to look at. I'm glad to hear it'll go into production!

      >> set of supercapacitors instead of a lithium battery pack.

      Oh, so easy, just like that. A set of viable supercaps in a production vehicle.

      Well while we're at it, hey everyone, there's a rumor that there's going to be a home cold fusion kit next year. It'll also come with a sample of Home Cancer Cure® and Home AIDS Cure®.

      BMW cars need to be tested for safety in side impact crashes. I was t-boned at 45 mph in the driver side and NONE of my airbags went off.
      The representative for BMW who handles airbags said the cars airbags are not designed to go off in a crash unless its life threatning ????

      The cars look good but not as safe as others.
