BMW has released its newest hybrid concept car at The Frankfurt Auto Show. The car is appropriately named the Vision EfficientDynamics. The chassis is constructed of mostly aluminum and utilizes a special composite for the roof and body.
The power behind this new hybrid is powered by two electric motors mounted on the axles to provide all-wheel drive. In addition, it packs a 1.5L 3-cylinder turbodiesel engine. To complete the system there are 98 lithium-polymer batteries as well.
The Vision EfficentDynamics concept hybrid can obtain 31 miles on electricity alone, while an approximate range of 400 miles can be obtained using both systems for an average fuel economy of 62.5 mpg. Also it can reach 62 mph in 4.5 seconds.
