BMW Reveals All-Electric Vision ConnectedDrive Concept

Follow Viknesh

BMW is going to great lengths to show that electric cars can look good as well as just being green, revealing today its new Vision ConnectedDrive zero-emission roadster concept ahead of its world debut next month at the 2011 Geneva Motor Show.

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.
