BMW Officially Confirms Vision Efficient Dynamics Concept for Production

BMW has confirmed it will build a production model based on the Vision EfficientDynamics (VED) concept, which it first revealed at the Frankfurt Auto Show last year. The news comes as little surprise, with the concept having been incredibly well received my the media and public, while winning several awards for both design and technology.

To show how far along in the production process the company is, BMW showing a near production version of the VED at the Leipzig trade fair center, allowing media to drive the car.

BMW will say it uses an advanced hybrid system, although specifics aren't yet available. The concept car was powered by a 3-cylinder turbo diesel with a plug-in hybrid system making 328-hp and allowing a 0-62 mph time of 4.8 seconds, while registering just 62.5 mpg. That number is made more impressive when you consider the car can drive 31 emissions free miles first.

No indication of when the production model will arrive has been given, but we have to think its not as far-off as one might think.
