Default Vision of efficient dynamics for the future visited at the BMW Boutique, C.P. Delhi

The BMW Concept Vision Efficient Dynamics is a plug-in hybrid concept vehicle that has been developed by BMW. The concept car was unveiled at the Internationale Automobil-Ausstellung Frankfurt in September 2009.

In 2010 BMW announced the mass production of the Concept Vision Efficient Dynamics in Leipzig in 2013 as the BMW i8.The i8 is part of BMW's "Project i" and will marketed as a new brand, BMW i, sold separately from BMW or Mini. The BMW i3 and the BMW i8 will be the first models available from 2013. Other i models will follow.

The Vision Efficient Dynamics is a plug-in hybrid with a three cylinder turbodiesel engine. Additionally, there are two electric motors with 139 horsepower. It allows an acceleration to 100 km/h in 4.8 seconds and an electronically limited top speed of 155 miles per hour (249 km/h).

"The innovative design of the BMW ActiveHybrid technology allows performance figures at the level of a sports car, with just 4.8 seconds required for the sprint from zero to 100 km/h - with an average fuel consumption in the EU test cycle (KV01) of 3.76 liters/100 kilometers, equal to 75.1 mpg imp, and a CO2 emission rating of 99 grams per kilometer (1,3 l/100km and 33g CO2/km ; EU-PHEV ECE-R101). The use of electrical energy alone permits zero-emissions motoring with a range of some 50 kilometres, while a 24-litre diesel tank extends the total action radius of the vehicle to up to 700 kilometres."

The lightweight chassis is made mainly from aluminium. The windshield, top, doors and fenders are made from polycarbonate glass, with the body having a drag coefficient of 0.22

Recently, with the fellow petrol-heads not only in India but across the globe going ecstatic over the past few weeks after the car was spotted on our very own streets of Mumbai filming for a certain Hollywood blockbuster, it was announced that the car will be displayed at the BMW boutique in Delhi.

Armed with my new DSLR on this beautiful sunday evening in company of some fellow petrol-heads, I headed out to witness the infusion of science and art myself and see what all the fuss is about! I was left spell-bound to say the least. I"ll let my pictures narrate the rest...
