A report in the Automobilwoche claims the aforementioned Bimmer is a 4-seater with a carbon-fiber reinforced plastic body and an extremely low drag coefficient. Apparently it also weighs less than 1200Kg.
Now, about what will power this car? Though not much is known about the engine, word has it that the model will be powered by an electric motor and a 2-cylinder petrol engine (generator).
This reminds us of another vehicle that promises an equally exciting mileage, though less than the one claimed for this rumoured BMW. Volkswagen's XL1 is a diesel powered plug-in hybrid that returns almost 111Km/l. The XL1 gets a 800cc TDI 2-cylinder diesel engine that is paired to an electric motor. While the TDI develops 47bhp, the electric motor puts out 27bhp, thus taking the total power output to 74bhp.
