BMW Vision Efficient Dynamics Concept Caught in Abu Dhabi

It seems like BMW is making eco development moves, as the company’s Vision EfficientDynamics concept has been spotted while stretching its wheels on a track in Abu Dhabi. The vehicle was caught on camera by Teamspeed forum member Captain Stradale.

As you can see, we are dealing with a gray incarnation of the car, which comes after the white concept that was previously showcased and the heavily-camouflaged prototype that has been raising the public’s level of anticipation.

Various media sources previously indicated that the Vision EfficientDynamics’s production version, which has been confirmed by the Bavarian automaker, will use the i8 name. A release date hasn’t been offered, but BMW has confirmed that the car will be priced around $200,000.

The car is expected to be powered by a diesel-hybrid powertrain that delivers 328 hp. The vehicle promises to offers a time of 4.8 seconds for the 0 to 62 mph sprint, while returning a fuel consumption of 62.5 US mpg.

Let’s take a few moments to see how the German automaker describes the car: “BMW Vision EfficientDynamics is the result of a "clean-sheet" development process to ensure that the correct achievements were made in the areas of efficiency, driving pleasure, technology, and emotional design. BMW Vision EfficientDynamics is the most comprehensive implementation of the EfficientDynamics philosophy seen so far.

In its design, BMW Vision EfficientDynamics for the first time conveys the dynamic look of a BMW sports car to a hybrid vehicle. Developed with decades of experience in Motorsport, the body of this unique sports car is a result of intelligent lightweight technology and aerodynamic efficiency. In the design of the interior, the focus was likewise on both the fascinating driving experience and, in particular, on transparent, hands-on technology and maximum reduction of weight.
