The automaker doesn’t go into detail as to what is powering the concept but does state that it showcases the latest developments in electromobility combined with a vehicle styled by BMW. You can take this as meaning there’s an all-electric drivetrain residing under its hood.
In its press release for the concept BMW states that as part of its EfficientDynamics framework, electric drivetrains will play a key role on the road to CO2-free mobility. This means that we can expect a range of electric cars from the automaker in the years to come--we’ve already seen the prototype MINI E and ActiveE, and by 2013 the highly anticipated Megacity Vehicle will be launched.
Getting back to the Vision ConnectedDrive, BMW is also using the concept as a vessel to preview its current and future methods of mobile networking. Some of the ConnectedDrive elements featured in this particular concept include car-to-car communication, real-time navigation and the latest sensor technology for accident avoidance.
