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.

I think that is really nice design. It seems the range is increasing. I heard of some batteries not taking long to charge. I guess the future is electric vehicles. Personally I think fuel cells is the future; fuel cell battery hybrids. Why not use one of the most common elements around?

The font on picture should be titled " You want ugly? I'll show you ugly" How can they put such an ugly face on a car that otherwise looks great? Kudos to BMW for realising the explosive potential and difficulty in storing H2. Let's hope the batterys can reflect the potential they describe.

though the nose looks lovely from every other angle, that front-on, gaping, two-tooth gob mirrors Uncle Cletus' shock at the sight of it ...
