Default BMW i Vision Dynamics

http://www.carscoops.com/2017/09/bmw...ews-firms.html




Previewing the third BMW "i" model (and looking quite diffrenet to the leaks in the previous weeks, btw.), this is a kind of Sedan/Gran Coupe vehicle. With a 0-62 mph (100 km/h) time of under 4 sec., 200 km/h top speed and a 373 miles range, this sounds squarely aimed at Tesla...

Visually, there is quite a lot of new things going on, and - apart form the rear end, that seems to bring back the bangle butt - IMO not that much typical BMW. The joined double kidneys look more like a take on the Kia Tiger nose grille, as does the "kidney kink" on the side windows, the absence of the Hofmeister kink is also something new for BMW (but it seems the X2 and new 1 series will lack that as well). 'The general shape and proportions however are pleasantly nice...

Beyond ugly. Kidneys even uglier than on the X7 :/

The DLO is shaped like a kia grille ! And the "hoffmeiser kink" now resembles the 2002 maxima's c pillar.

In my eyes that#s not longer a Hofmrister kink. That#s just a random C-pillar shape. At least it has no fake floating pillar...

I really like the look of this...of course by the time production (if) happens - it'll be watered down.

Here we go again, but so what. This is attractive, but we know BMW is incapable of producing it faithfully. Why is it their styling department can do concepts that looks nearly production viable, but the production car looks a decade old when it arrives?

The nose and tail aren't remotely attractive looking IMO. But then, I don't like BMWs generally.

WOW

That is very very good looking. This thing is really perfect. Unfortunately it will never come that way.

detailing is all off (except the rear) but shape is perfect. This is the car that will give the Model-S real competition, as i assume there is a lot of crossover in target demographic, more so than Mercedes or Audi. The DLO is just dumb though...

There might be a BMW in this somewhere, but very disappointing. BMW seem incapable of creating a new design paradigm for themselves.
