Once you get passed the name, the BMW X3 Efficient Dynamics Concept is essentially a hybrid. X3 While the lower part of the X3 looks like Doc Brown installed a flux capacitor in BMW's littlest SUV, the X3 hybrid concept is a step toward production hybrid technology for BMW. The concept is also supposed to take advantage of super capacitors for rapid power delivery from the electric side of the hybrid drive train. BMW made it very clear, hybrids will become part of their strategy in the future. Their goal with this 'study' was to develop a hybrid system that would still offer the performance that BMW is known for. While BMW stated the X3 Hybrid shown will not make it into production as we see it, you can be sure the systems developed here will show up in the future. BMW has also just recently signed a memorandum of understanding with DCX and GM to jointly develop hybrids. These three may be the right mix to develop performance driven hybrid technology to take some hybrid market share from the Toyota's grip.
