ACCELERATING THE PULSE OF THE TIME.BMW i Visions.

Exploring new paths sometimes calls for a break with tradition and thinking in entirely new directions. In BMW i Visions, this aspiration takes on specific shapes. Visionary ideas and innovative technologies become visible for the first time. As a result, the mobile future becomes a little more tangible. Every BMW i Vision not only provides a view for further development work – it also supplies the stimulus and source of inspiration for the emission-free, sustainable mobility of tomorrow.

BMW i VISION DYNAMICS.

Visionary solutions and future-ready concepts become reality: The BMW i Vision Dynamics portrays the image of electric mobility in a dynamic, practical model. With a possible range of 600 km (373 miles), over 200 km/h (120 mph) top speed and an acceleration of 0-100 km/h (62 mph) in 4.0 seconds the BMW i Visions Dynamics takes the e-mobility experience to a new level. A progressive, four-door Gran Coupé positioned between the i3 and i8. The tension between large surfaces and finely worked details points to the innovative technology at the heart of the car in an understated way.

The dynamics of the future.

A SUCCESS STORY: BMW i.

PROJECT i.

In spring 2008, the best minds of BMW meet at a top-secret locations in Munich to consider an ambitious target: the reinvention of urban mobility. The team from Munich set up a think-tank, call it “project i” and assign a single mission: Forget what went before. Rethink everything.

BMW VISION EFFICIENT DYNAMICS.

For the first time, an overall concept for saving energy is developed; previously, the approach only involved integrating energy-saving techniques into existing models. The body and the drive system were specially developed, with the focus on energy-saving. The concept becomes a technology base for many further developments by BMW.

LAUNCH BMW i.

Born Electric: BMW i is the new brand from BMW and impresses with its mobility concept that permits a fully electric mobile daily routine – before, during and after the journey. This is because BMW i thinks beyond the vehicle – and leaves nothing to be desired with its innovative mobility services.

BMW CONCEPT i8 AND BMW CONCEPT i3.

The next evolutionary stage in the BMW Vision EfficientDynamics – the BMW i8 Concept. It combines the impressive performance of a sports car with a high degree of efficiency. The BMW i3 Concept is presented at the same time. The first completely connected electric vehicle, which is specially tailored to the requirements of electric mobility.

BMW i8 CONCEPT SPYDER.

Less ballast, more freedom – the BMW i8 Concept Spyder: this breathtaking lightweight roadster with hybrid drive forgoes the roof and relies uncompromisingly on carbon, aluminium and lithium. The structure of its frame accommodates the axles drive system and batteries so that the weight is cleanly balanced.

BMW i3 CONCEPT COUPÉ.

Reinventing mobility means thinking beyond the realms of environmentally aware and agile driving. The result is the BMW i3 which, with its visionary design, offers a view of tomorrow’s automobile. Its innovative eDrive propulsion system not only allows emission-free and incomparable driving pleasure but at the same time provides an exciting almost silent motoring experience.

MARKET LAUNCH OF BMW i3.

Urban mobility reinvented: the BMW i3 is the result of a vision that extends far beyond environmentally aware and agile driving. With its visionary design and the innovative BMW eDrive power system, the BMW i3 is the car of tomorrow. It is not only locally emission-free but also fully connected with the city.

MARKET LAUNCH OF BMW i8.

The sports car of the future – with the consumption and emission values of a compact car. The strength of this plug-in hybrid lies in the perfect synchronisation of electric motor and combustion engine, which expresses itself in maximum efficiency and dynamics on the road. No longer a vision, but fully charged intelligence. The first sports car that can even accelerate the zeitgeist.

BMW i VISION FUTURE INTERACTION.

The future is on display in 2016 in Las Vegas: at the Consumer Electronics Show, BMW i Vision Future Interaction is providing a view of tomorrow’s interconnected cockpit. Just one of the highlights is AirTouch, a completely new system that enables a wide range of functions to be controlled by gesture.

BMW i3 (94 Ah).

The BMW i success story continues – or better: runs and runs. With a NEDC range (New European Driving Cycle) of up to 300 km (200 km in everyday operation), the new BMW i3 (94 Ah) is also a reliable travelling companion for lengthy tours. And with its 7.3 seconds for 0 to 100 km/h, it also boasts true sprinter qualities.

Fuel consumption and CO2 emissions.

  • The figures for fuel consumption and CO2 emissions depend on the wheel and tyre sizes selected.

    Further information on the official fuel consumption and on the official specific CO2 emissions of new automobiles can be found in the guidelines on fuel consumption and CO2 emissions of new automobiles which are available free of charge at all retail outlets and from DAT Deutsche Automobil Treuhand GmbH, Hellmuth-Hirth-Str. 1, 73760 Ostfildern, Germany.

    The engine meets the EU5 emissions standard. Fuel consumption is determined in accordance with the ECE driving cycle (93/116/EC), made up of approximately one-third urban traffic and two-thirds extra-urban driving (based on the distance covered). CO2 emissions are measured in addition to fuel consumption as such. Fuel consumption levels are calculated on the basis of vehicles with standard equipment. Special equipment (e.g. wider tyres) can have a significant impact on fuel consumption and driving performance levels.

    These specifications apply to vehicles on the German market. The models illustrated may, in part, include optional equipment and accessories not fitted as standard. According to the specific requirements of other markets, alterations may occur regarding models, standard and optional equipment, as described in the text and illustrations. For precise information, please contact your BMW partner. Subject to change in design and equipment. Subject to error. Equipment specific to national markets is not represented here.

    Unladen weight (EU) in kg: the figure quoted includes a 90 per cent tank filling, 68 kg for the driver and 7 kg for luggage. Unladen weight applies to vehicles with standard equipment. Optional equipment may increase this figure.

    Rated output: BMW recommends the use of super unleaded 95 RON fuel. Unleaded RON 91 fuel or higher with a maximum ethanol limit of 10 per cent (E10) is also permitted. The performance and fuel consumption rates listed are based on the use of RON 98 fuel.

    Top speed: electronically limited.

    ** Wheels cluster 2: 20“ wheels; winter tyres

    The figures for fuel consumption, CO2 emissions and power consumption depend on the wheel and tyre sizes selected.

    The driving range depends on a variety of factors, especially: personal driving behaviour, selected route, weather conditions, usage of heating/cooling and preconditioning.
