New BMW electric vehicles at the Frankfurt Motor ShowSeptember 12, 2017
BMW has a number of new electric models on display at the Frankfurt Motor Show, including the world premiere of the BMW i Vision Dynamics.
The BMW i Vision Dynamics four-door Gran Coupe features an all-electric drive system enabling a range of 373 miles, acceleration of 0 – 62 mph in 4.0 seconds, and a top speed of over 124 mph.
The BMW Concept X7 iPerformance, the first Sports Activity Vehicle in the luxury segment, is also celebrating its world premiere in Frankfurt. The Concept X7 iPerformance has a plug-in hybrid drive system, which brings together BMW eDrive technology and a petrol engine with BMW TwinPower Turbo technology. The six-seater concept study provides a preview of a new series-production BMW for the luxury segment. The forthcoming BMW X7 will be unveiled in 2018 as part of the largest model offensive in the history of the BMW Group.
The new edition of the BMW i3 is making its debut appearance at the 2017 Frankfurt Motor Show, together with the new BMW i3s. The i3, the world’s best-selling electric car in the premium compact segment, now comes with refreshed styling details, new equipment features and new digital services.
And the BMW i3 has now been joined by a second model variant. With a higher output, model-specific chassis technology, more dynamic driving qualities and design features all of its own, the new BMW i3s aims to provide a solution for drivers who want electric mobility as well as a sporty driving experience.
The handling characteristics of both models are improved by the optimised Dynamic Stability Control (DSC) system. Other new features in the BMW i3 and BMW i3s include the On-Street Parking Information service, the unique BMW Digital Charging Service and the BMW Connected personal mobility assistant.
There’s also a BMW Motorrad motorbike concept with an all-electric drive system.
BMW has already launched more electrified vehicles than any established competitor. By 2025 the BMW Group will have 25 models with electrified drive systems in its line-up, with 12 of these being pure electric and therefore producing zero local emissions.
