Technology.am (Sept. 15, 2009) — At the Frankfurt Motor Show, the BMW Group will be showing all three brands together- BMW, MINI and Rolls-Royce Motor Cars.
The highlight of BMW’s presence this year is a circuit several hundred metres long running around the entire exhibition space on which the BMW EfficientDynamics fleet and vehicle premieres will be presented.
The BMW Vision EfficientDynamics Concept The BMW Vision EfficientDynamics concept car, which will be presented to a global public for the first time at the Frankfurt Motor Show, incorporates a wider range of BMW EfficientDynamics technologies than any vehicle before: from its ultra-efficient combustion engine, sophisticated energy management and BMW ActiveHybrid technology with innovative electricity-storage technology to lightweight construction and consistently optimised aerodynamics.
The 2+2 seater was designed as a plug-in vehicle using full-hybrid technology and provides the capabilities to combine the driving performance of a BMW M automobile with fuel consumption and emissions that are even lower than for today’s compact cars.
The new BMW 320d EfficientDynamics Edition will be presented alongside the BMW 320d for the first time at the 2009 Frankfurt Motor Show.
The sedan combines a fuel consumption of just 4.1 litres diesel per 100 kilometres and CO2 emissions of 109 gram per kilometre in the EU test cycle with an engine output of 120 kW/163 hp.
This model further asserts BMW’s acknowledged superiority in the development of especially low-emission models with dynamic driving performance.
The following models will further enhance the efficiency and dynamic performance of the model range: the BMW 520d Special Edition and the BMW 116d, the BMW 116i, the BMW 120i Coupé, the 118d Coupé and the BMW 730d with BMW BluePerformance (EU6 norm) models.
The BMW stand will also focus on the world premiere of the hybrid vehicles BMW ActiveHybrid 7 and BMW ActiveHybrid X6 as well as the world debut of the BMW X1 and the BMW 5 Series Gran Turismo.
The BMW ActiveHybrid 7 sedan and the BMW ActiveHybrid X6 Sports Activity Coupé each incorporates its own model-specific combination of combustion engine and electric motor for an extraordinary, and impressively efficient, driving experience.
The BMW X1 is the first vehicle in the premium compact segment to embody the characteristics typical of a BMW X model.
The BMW 5 Series Gran Turismo unites the key features of a prestigious sedan with those of a modern Sports Activity Vehicle and a classic Gran Turismo.
The BMW 740d, scheduled for launch in autumn 2009, will be a further focus of attention: It is the first model equipped with a new straight-six diesel engine with BMW TwinPower Turbo Technology.
Visitors can also see the BMW Power Kit for four-cylinder diesel models, new BMW rear luggage racks and the latest portable navigation systems.
