With the latest videos coming from DontBlogAboutThis, supported by insider information leaked on several forums, we decided to reveal some of the information we have known for a while on BMW’s hybrid concept that created some impressive online buzz, and not only.
On September 30th, BMW will unveil to the world their BMW Vision EfficientDynamics “Full Runner”. Even though not confirmed through official channels, we learned that the project “Full Runner” is a continuation of the concept introduced at Frankfurt Auto Show last year, but this time, in a form closer to production status.
This time around, the Vision EfficientDynamics concept is a fully working prototype that will showcase its underpinning platform, from the three-cylinder diesel engine, to the two small electric motors and battery technology. The car has gone through intensive testing behind closed gates, including field tests at Miramas BMW test center outside Marseilles, France.
A second source confirmed what the usual BMW insider Scott stated a while back: the car has been tested by a hand-full of journalists at the French race track, but an embargo has been placed on these articles. We expect to see a series of reports coming on September 30th when BMW will unveil the car.
It continues to remain a mystery whether the car will make it to the Paris Auto Show showroom for the press days, or it will be presented as a preview to a selected audience. Today, we learned that the hybrid concept will not be at the show, but we are waiting on the clarification on whether it is was not meant to be shown to the general public, or only to accredited journalists.
The project name comes to confirm previous assumptions and a “Full Runner” naming convention pretty much tells the story.
Please stay tuned next week for a series of exclusive news and extensive coverage!
