The Frankfurt Motor Show is currently in full swing with press representatives hurrying from one stand to another to get the best shots of the premieres happening right now. We also have boots on the ground and have already showed you the most interesting debut BMW has in store this year, in the shape of the BMW i Vision Dynamics. But before the preview from BMW for the future of electric cars was unveiled, it was penned inside the BMW Group Designstudio, the place where every car new car the Germans gets cut into shape.

To tease us even more, the Bavarians published a short clip of the inside of the studio yesterday, hoping to get a reaction out of us. In it we get to see what hides behind closed doors with a sneak peek at the MINI Electric Concept alongside the MINI John Cooper Works GP concept, Rolls-Royce Phantom VIII and BMW i Vision Dynamics hidden under the same blue veil we got to see when the CEO of the company first spoke about it.

By now though, the veils have been taken off and we now know how the new concept looks and what it’s bringing to the table. Looking like a futuristic version of the BMW 4 Series Gran Coupe, the BMW i Vision Dynamics wants to become a real-world electric car with a range of 373 miles (600 km), a top speed of 200 km/h (124 mph) and an acceleration to 62 mph (100 km/h) from standstill of just 4 seconds flat.

While all of that might take some time to become reality, we’re definitely excited to see the end product. While the Germans were coy about providing more details, our sources inside Munich claim that this thing could be available at dealerships in 2021 and that the naming scheme hasn’t been agreed upon just yet. What we do know is that it won’t be called i5. In the meantime, let’s take a look at everything BMW’s Designstudio put together for this year’s Frankfurt Auto Show.
