BMW i Vision gran coupe enters Frankfurt as a vision of BMW's electric future
BMW has unveiled a new concept vehicle, the i Vision Dynamics, a four-door gran coupe with a range of 600 km (373 miles) per charge and a top speed of over 200 km/h (120 mph). The sporting sedan is a "look ahead to the e-mobility experience of the future," BMW says.
The BMW i Vision Dynamics uses the classic proportions endemic to all BMW cars, with a long wheelbase sitting under a slightly curved roofline and a saloon-styled body emphasizing the hood and a short, clipped rear deck and overhang. The one-piece greenhouse profile, with indents where the center pillar between doors should be, is a hallmark of all BMW i series vehicles. It's clear that aerodynamics are the primary focus of the exterior on the i Vision Dynamics.
Also of note on the new BMW i Vision Dynamics concept is the revised front grille, with a larger, more squared "BMW double kidney" as its definition. The grille itself is deleted, becoming just a surface design without function, making it clear that this is an electric vehicle requiring no engine airflow. Pencil-thin LED headlamps and well-defined edges for the fenders finish the exterior's electrified, muscular appeal.
Powering the BMW i Vision Dynamics concept is an undefined electric powertrain. BMW says that the sedan would have a range of 600 km (373 miles) per charge and a top speed of over 200 km/h (120 mph) with acceleration of 0-100 km/h (62 mph) in four seconds.
The BMW i Vision Dynamics concept is on display in Frankfurt this week.
