BMW Working On 588 MPG Plug-In Hybrid
According to Automobilwoche, BMW is working on ultra efficient car, which will achieve 588 miles per gallon fuel economy or 0.4 liters of fuel per 100 kilometers.
It will be a small, 4-seater, with an ultra-low drag coefficient and weight of just 2,645 pounds (1,200 kg) made from carbon-fiber reinforced plastic.
The mysterious car will be equipped with a two cylinder gas engine just to generate power and an electric motor to drive the wheels.
If BMW is really working on such car (for demonstration purposes or limited production run), Volkswagen’s XL1 diesel plug-in hybrids with “just” 240 mpg will look like a gas guzzler.
Performance will not be the top priority with this BMW.
