Geneva '08 Preview: BMW to debut green/blue concept

With European carmakers in particular seeming to favor blue (BlueTec, BluePerformance, AdBlue) over green lately, it appears that BMW will be showing off a new "blue" concept at the Geneva Motor Show in March. No details are available yet, but it will apparently feature Efficient Dynamics, the tag line being used by the Munich company for their efficiency- and emissions-optimizing technology. At a minimum, the vehicle will likely include start-stop and brake energy regeneration, both technologies being widely deployed on Euro-market BMWs. Beyond that, it could be a diesel or run on hydrogen, both fuels of choice for the company and may well include the two-mode hybrid system. Since BMW prefers hydrogen with internal combustion, a hydrogen two-mode is not out of the question. The possibilities are endless. We'll see soon enough.
