we Know some specifications of the mysterious plug-in hybrid BMW i
it Seems that the mystery is solved. Do you remember the strange BMW i appeared few days ago in the register of patents? Except the pictures, a little information in our possession except that this is a plug-in hybrid because it shows caps on both sides of the body and its intuible distribution 2+2.
This prototype plug-in hybrid consumes only 0.4 liters per 100
BMW spoke explaining that this is not a vehicle that will reach production, but the manufacturer has expanded the information from another place. According to the source, at a conference on electric vehicles has stated that it is located in its facilities the development of a plug-in hybrid ultra-efficiency.
The little information that comes to us is that the prototype mounts a combustion engine , two cylinders turbo in the rear of the vehicle, an electric motor package and lithium-ion batteries.
with Respect to their potency has not been specified nothing at the moment but if you speak of a consumption of only 0,4 liters per 100 kilometers, 1.202 kg of weight and the ability to be able to travel at speeds of up to 180 km/h.
it Has a drag coefficient of 0,18 Cx and just like the BMW i8, the body and chassis are manufactured in carbon fiber to a great extent. The weight savings and the low resistance is the key to under-consumption by getting a greater autonomy for the electric motor.
¿A rival to the Volkswagen XL1? In principle, BMW has stated that the vehicle would not happen to be produced in series but it can be a technology showcase and a field tests for the development of future models or just a sample that they can overcome the vehicle more efficient production on the planet.
