Bmw i8 a.k.a. Vision EfficientDynamics spotted in Abu Dhabi

Article by Andrew Christian, on December 30, 2010

It appears that Bmw is working hard on its upcoming supercar, the so-called i8 or Vission EfficientDynamics, and it appears that the car is very close to the production version, as you can see the photos released by a reader of TeamSpeed forum.

In the latest photos, the Bmw i8 also shows a new grey color and honestly to tell you it looks much better than the white colour showed in the concept form.

For those who don’t know, the new car will use a combination of a 3-cylinder turbo diesel engine with a hybrid synchronous motor at the front axle and a full-hybrid engine at the rear axle.

The total output delivered by the car will be 241 kW/328 bhp, enough we’d say to push the vehicle from zero to 100 km/h (62 mph) in just 4.8 seconds.

Still, the fuel consumption delivered by the car is only 3.76 litters/100 kilometers, equal to 75.1 mpg imp, and CO2 emission rating of 99 grams per kilometer (1,3 l/100km and 33g CO2/km; EU-PHEV ECE-R101).

Furthermore, the car can act as a full-electric car for 50 kilometers or 31 miles, while with some help from the 24-litre diesel tank it will deliver a total range of up to 700 km or 435 miles.

Regarding its price, Ian Robertson, BMW Sales and Marketing Director said that the upcoming Vision EfficientDynamics supercar will cost less than 150,000 Pounds or $200,000.
