And the teasing continues. DontBlogAboutThis gives us some new teaser photos of what seems to be a hybrid concept based on the Vision EfficientDynamics.

The car is rumored to head for Paris and based on our sources, it uses a fully functional hybrid platform, in contrast to the VED concept shown last year.

Here are some of the conclusion and speculation we have outlined yesterday.

The obvious first. A prototype based on the BMW 6 Series Coupe (E63). As you will see in the videos below, the rear-end of the 6er stands out first.

However, some things do not fit well with this BMW 6 Series. First, the wheel arches are different from the standard bodystyle, and the vehicle unmistakably sits on another chassis than the 6. Second, the very narrow 195 tires certainly don’t fit the profile of a sporty 6er Coupe.

Third, also notice that the vehicle has only one tail pipe on the left.

The wheels are similar to the aerodynamic ones seen on other concepts, from Vision EfficientDynamics to ActiveE. Could this point to a high fuel efficient car?

A pure electric car is unlikely due to the tail pipe already outlined above. Therefore, a hybrid with a relatively small internal combustion engine is most likely the prime suspect here.

    so whats a big deal ? its a hybrid with a ICE on board, probably a small 1.5l or maybe even a small diesel (lets hope)

    pieces from bmw parts bin were attached to it. looks horrible with the bungle trunk … bungle legacy lives.. yippe yay…. hope he never designs an another car.

    so this secrecy thing with the 1M and this electric thingy is a bit childish. Why not come out and show the car ? It makes me puke…
    kind a like that JOY bullshit…

      Its not a big deal, and all that, but what I can’t comprehend is why you have to post meaningless cr ap like that day after day, don’t you have better things to do? Like earn some money and buy something that does not look like Bangle (spelled with an A, btw) car. Don’t you think THAT is a bit childish? Sure makes me puke.
