At the official launch of the 2012 Bmw 1-Series M Coupe, Ian Robertson, BMW Sales and Marketing Director said that the upcoming Vision EfficientDynamics supercar will cost less than 150,000 Pounds or $200,000.
This means that the car will be cheaper than the 2013 Mercedes-Benz SLS E-Cell which will cost around $250,000 when it will hit the dealerships in 2012.
For those who don’t know, the new supercar from the Bavarian manufacturer will use the 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 car will deliver a total output of 241 kW/328 bhp. With these numbers, the Vision EfficientDynamics is able to sprint from zero to 100 km/h (62 mph) in just 4.8 seconds.
Fuel consumption delivered is impressive as Bmw says that the vehicle will need only 3.76 litters/100 kilometers, equal to 75.1 mpg imp, as well as a CO2 emission rating of 99 grams per kilometer (1,3 l/100km and 33g CO2/km; EU-PHEV ECE-R101).
Moreover, the new Bmw will be able to be driver as a pure electric vehicle 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. [via insideline]
