BMW considering various vehicles for Project i program

BMW Project i fq

Back in the summer of 2007, BMW and the University of Bath in the UK put their combined heads together and designed a vehicle called the Compact Low Emission Vehicle for Urban Transportation, or Clever for short. Using just three wheels and an engine that was designed to run on compressed natural gas, the Clever concept emitted only half the carbon dioxide of normal economy cars.

BMW is looking at revisiting this design for a future production model under its new Project i program, which has the goal of finding new ways to create sustainable models for our transportation needs. The Clever would be just one vehicle in a range that consists of multiple two-, three- and four-wheeled vehicles.

For now, BMW will need to look to it’s motorcycle division to locate a suitable set of powerplants for Project i.
