BMW’s Vision EfficientDynamics concept going on show in NZ

BMW’s striking Vision EfficientDynamics car, is coming to New Zealand for a special one-off appearance and will be put on display at the Auckland Museum from Friday July 15 to Sunday July 17.

The high-tech machine will be part of next week’s Australian Motor Show and will pop in to NZ after, so it’s a great chance to see a groundbreaking concept car for free.

“The BMW VisionED represents the future of BMW mobility and unlike other concept cars, which often never see the light of day, the BMW VisionED is confirmed to go into production in 2013 and will be known as the BMW i8,” said the Managing Director of BMW Group New Zealand, Mark Gilbert.

“This ground-breaking model is a showcase of BMW technology and provides strong indications of drivetrain technology and the level of connectivity all future BMW models will feature.”

The combination of a three-cylinder turbo-diesel with a hybrid synchronous motor at the front axle and a full hybrid engine at the rear axle enables a maximum power output for the system of 241kW.

This new technology allows the BMW VisionED to achieve a 0–100km/h sprint time of just 4.8 seconds while returning a frugal economy figure of 3.76 litres per 100 kilometres, and a CO2 emission rating of just 99 grams per kilometre.

“Bringing the VisionED to New Zealand provides the rare opportunity to feature a model that exemplifies everything BMW represents, in terms of our dedication to increasing efficiency and minimising emissions while never compromising the performance BMW is famous for,” said Mr Gilbert.

The Auckland Museum is open 10am-5pm and entry to the BMW VisionED display on level three in the roof-top Event Centre is free.  The entrance is located at the Newmarket end of the building.
