BMW’s i Vision Dynamics to offer blend of striking design & performance

BMW recently unveiled a new electric concept vehicle, which boasts a head-turning design along with unprecedented performance. In addition to Tesla-familiar features like flush door handles, BMW’s i Visions Dynamics touts its capability to run a whopping 373 miles on a single full-charge. It has a top speed of more than 120 miles per hour (mph) and sprints from 0 to 60 mph in just 4 seconds.

The concept is part of the auto giant’s plan to shift to electric alternatives, which includes the company’s fielding more than two dozen electrified models by 2025, with twelve of them to be purely electric vehicles.

BWM claims that its upcoming range of electric cars could be a real competitor to the recently launched Tesla Model S e-car as the lineup would offer better performance. However, the figures presented yesterday are still far from EPA standard tallies.

The ongoing global crackdown on fossil fuel-powered vehicles in the wake of the revelation of Volkswagen’s cheating on emission tests has intensified pressure on carmakers to shift to electric alternatives.
