BMW i Vision Dynamics: A new form of electrifying driving pleasure

Just a year on from the presentation of its future-focused Next 100 vision vehicles, the BMW Group introduced the electric mobility of the much more immediate future at the IAA Cars 2017 show in Frankfurt. The BMW i Vision Dynamics is a four-door Gran Coupe with a range of 600 km, a top speed of over 200 km/h (120 mph) and acceleration of 0-100 km/h (62 mph) in four seconds.
“At the BMW Group, the future of electric mobility has already arrived,” said Harald Krüger, chairman of the board of management at BMW AG.
He added: “We have more electrified vehicles on the road than any established competitor and are committed to expanding our activities in the field of electric mobility as part of our Number One > Next strategy. By 2025 we will be offering 25 models with an electrified drive system — of which 12 will be pure-electric. With the BMW i Vision Dynamics we are showcasing how we envisage future electric mobility between the i3 and i8: A dynamic and progressive, four-door Gran Coupe. We are therefore electrifying the heart of the BMW brand and, at the same time, elevating BMW i into a totally new dimension.”
Klaus Fröhlich, member of the board of management at BMW AG, development, said: “BMW i is the innovation driver for the BMW Group. At events like this, visionary solutions and future-ready concepts become reality for the first time. But BMW i also acts as a spearhead of innovation for our other brands. The BMW i Vision Dynamics allows us to show right now what another electric BMW might look like. And BMW has demonstrated its talent for turning visions into real life throughout its history.”
Adrian van Hooydonk, senior vice president BMW Group Design, said: “With the i3 and i8 we have designed a revolutionary city car and a revolutionary sports car.”
He added: “And now the BMW i Vision Dynamics is combining electric mobility with the core values of BMW: Dynamism and elegance. We are therefore demonstrating how the product range and the design language of BMW i can be evolved further into other concepts.”
