PanARMENIAN.Net - At the Frankfurt auto show, BMW showed off the latest addition to its iSeries vehicles: The two-door i Vision Dynamics coupe concept car. With a top speed of 200 kilometers per-hour and a zero to 100 kilometers (64 miles per-hour) launch of four seconds, it sits squarely between the urban bubble i3 and the supercar i8, Engadget said.

The iVision is part of the companies ongoing roadmap of bringing EVs and hybrids to the market. "Our top priority is electric mobility," BMW CEO Harald Krueger said the company. The automaker is planning 25 electrified vehicles (12 of them fully electric) by the year 2025.

The i Vision Dynamic has a range of 600 kilometers (373 miles) so it's clearly targeting the Tesla Model S market. The automaker promised that this car would go into production.

With this vehicle and the recently launched Mini Countryman hybrid and the concept electric Mini, BMW is making inroads with drivers looking to be a bit more green but also wanting performance.
