The BMW i Vision Dynamics, rumored to be released by 2021, represents only the beginning of BMW’s aggressive growth into the all-electric segment
BMW has extensively discussed its fleet of conceptual NEXT 100 vision vehicles. These conceptual models represent the path that BMW is looking to pursue far into the future.
However, what many drivers have been seeking is a glimpse into BMW’s more immediate future. BMW shared that vision earlier today at the Frankfurt Motor Show with the BMW i Vision Dynamics.
i Division Additions: BMW to Release 2018 i8 Roadster Model
Set to be situated between the BMW i3 and i8, the BMW i Vision Dynamics represents BMW’s latest addition to its i Division of vehicles. This fleet of models represents the brand’s ventures into all-electric technology.
The i Vision Dynamics is undoubtedly set to be a rival for Tesla. However, whether it is a competitor for the Model S or the upcoming Model 3 will depend on its final price.
The i Vision Dynamics is what BMW calls a “Gran Coupe,” a sleek, four-door design sporting aerodynamic aspects. Such a design includes a rear bumper that takes cues from BMW’s other i vehicles, as well as a sleek grille sporting a rather odd variation of BMW’s signature dual kidneys, which reportedly house a series of sensors.
Perhaps the most fascinating aspect of its exterior look is the vehicle’s roof. From the front windshield to the rear window, the entire roof will be composed of translucent glass, which BMW states will give the cabin a more elegant and comfortable feel.
As for performance, the BMW i Vision Dynamics is set to produce some impressive stats. The concept vehicle has a top speed of 120 mph, and is able to reach 60 mph in just four seconds.
As far as range goes, BMW seems to be improving upon the capabilities of its previous electric models. The BMW i Vision Dynamics has a projected total range of 373 miles.

BMW has assured automotive enthusiasts that the BMW i Vision Dynamics will be a concept that comes to fruition. In fact, reports suggest that the model could be produced by 2021.
That’s only the beginning for BMW’s expansion into electric technologies. The brand announced earlier this month that it will offer 25 electrified vehicles by 2025, including 12 EVs.
“At the BMW Group, the future of electric mobility has already arrived,” declared Harald Krüger, Chairman of the Board of Management at BMW AG. If this is indeed the case, then we can expect a plethora of electrifying news from BMW in the near future.
