This is a bit quick.
We’ve got used to car makers playing tease on new cars ever since they worked out that car sites could report the bits they leaked (officially and unofficially) very quickly. And – unlike car magazines – we can offer up umpteen stories a day for our readers who enjoy car related news. So it works. For them and for us.
But we only had the first tease yesterday on the BMW EfficientDynamics Concept. And we got a video of the Vision Concept that showed the view from the roof and lots of whooshing noises. Very informative. And today we’ve got another. Admittedly it’s not come direct from BMW this time, but it’s semi-official as it’s come from the IAA blog for the Frankfurt Motor Show. Still, it’s news.
But what extra do we see? Well, it wouldn’t be hard to get less of an idea than the first image. At least it looks like a car – the rear 3/4 view anyway – but it doesn’t look like any BMW we’ve seen before. So maybe it really is something new. That’d be good.
BMW stated on the IAA Blog that they are going to release more information on Sunday, and they’re saying the concept will show “how efficient a sports car can be”. Which doesn’t give much away. But WCF are reporting that a BMW insider has revealed that the Vision EfficientDynamics Concept will be utilise a small diesel hybrid with 590lb/ft of torque, 80mpg and 0-60mpg in under 5 seconds.
Which if it’s anything close to true will be very interesting indeed.
