Report: BMW Vision EfficientDynamics Headed for Production in 2013


A senior BMW official has confirmed that the wild Vision EfficientDynamics turbo-diesel plug-in hybrid is headed for production. BMW showed the concept at the Frankfurt Auto Show last year where it received an overwhelmingly positive reaction.

As reported by InsideLine, BMW has not confirmed if in fact the hybrid sports car will retain its 3-cylinder turbo-diesel engine and electric motor with lithium-ion battery packs. In the show car, that setup made 356-hp and 590 ft-lbs of torque, delivering a 0-62 mph time of 4.8 seconds, thanks in part to its ultra-low curb weight.

When asked by InsideLine if the model might be a real supercar, their source commented, "quite probably." For that to be true, it will likely need a bit more power,with some rumors suggesting the “next M1″ will be powered by a hybrid version of the company's 4.4-liter twin-turbo V8. And wile we do expect impressive fuel economy numbers, they aren't likely to be quite so good as the concept car's 63 mpg rating.

Expect a slightly more robust weight when it does hit production in 2013, however, it is expected to deliver an incredibly low drag coefficient.
