As one of the world’s leading manufacturers of premium vehicles, the German carmaker BMW is presenting in addition to the latest products in its model range a number of groundbreaking concepts for individual mobility of the future.

 

 

World premiere: the BMW Concept M5.

A premium class business sedan with the dynamic qualities of a high-performance sports car: This highly traditional concept is being reinterpreted with the world premiere of the BMW Concept M5. The fascinating concept car demonstrates how athletic design and the racing-inspired character of a BMW M automobile can be combined with the aesthetic and functional features of a sedan of the upper midrange segment. The BMW Concept M5 possesses expressive and unmistakeable design features that hint at the awesomely dynamic potential of the sedan. Under the bonnet, a high-revving V8 engine with M TwinPower Turbo Technology generates the power output required for outstanding performance.

 

World premiere: the BMW 6 Series Coupe.

The Auto Shanghai 2011 is the scene of the world premiere of a new dream car. The new BMW 6 Series Coupe fascinates with a unique combination of aesthetics, luxury and innovative technology. The body design, which was inspired by flowing waves, and an exclusive interior
give the 2+2-seater an impressive appearance. Powerful engines and state-of-the-art suspension technology set benchmarks for sportiness and motoring comfort. Thanks to Adaptive LED headlights, the latest generation of the BMW Head-Up Display and the Bang & Olufsen High End Surround Sound System, the BMW 6 Series Coupe provides additional accents for innovation and unsurpassed driving pleasure.

 

Asian premiere: the BMW Vision ConnectedDrive.

With the BMW Vision ConnectedDrive concept car being presented at
the Auto Shanghai 2011, BMW is offering a glance into the future of intelligent networking between driver, vehicle and environment. Expressive design and innovative technology reflect the vision of
BMW ConnectedDrive and the potential that can be unleashed through
a targeted exchange of information for optimising comfort, safety and Infotainment inside an automobile. Using typical BMW design vocabulary, the two-seater roadster prototype epitomises the focus on driving pleasure. Captivating light effects symbolise the flow of information permitting the use of innovative BMW ConnectedDrive functions. With groundbreaking driver assistance systems, a novel display and operating concept as well as innovative technical solutions for connecting with the world of Infotainment, the BMW Vision ConnectedDrive offers a glance into a future driving experience that has been further intensified thanks to intelligent networking.

 

Asian premiere: the BMW ActiveE.

BMW has taken the next step on the way to emission-free mobility. With the BMW ActiveE the premium carmaker is underlining its consistent development work in the field of electric mobility within the framework of project i. The knowledge gained from field tests with the BMW ActiveE will be fed into the further development of the BMW Group’s future Megacity Vehicle, which will be ready for series production in the year 2013. The BMW ActiveE is powered by a 125 kW/170 bhp electric motor. The intelligent arrangement of drive components and energy storage systems inside the vehicle create the ideal preconditions for typical
BMW driving dynamics and enhanced functionality. The vehicle, which is based on the BMW 1 Series Coupe, offers four fully-fledged seats, a
200-litre luggage compartment, rear-wheel drive and a range of around 200 kilometres in everyday driving conditions.

CO2 emission information.

The values for fuel consumption, CO2 emissions and energy consumption shown were determined in a standardised test cycle according to the European Regulation (EC) 715/2007 in the version currently applicable. The figures refer to a vehicle with basic configuration in Germany and the range shown considers transmission (automatic or manual) and the different wheels and tyres available on the selected model and may vary during the configuration.

The values of the vehicles labelled with (*), are already based on the test cycle according to the new WLTP regulation and are translated back into NEDC-equivalent values in order to allow a comparison between vehicles. More information on the transition from NEDC to WLTP test procedures can be found here.

These figures are intended for comparison purposes and may not be representative of what a user achieves under usual driving conditions. For plug-in hybrid vehicles and battery electric vehicles the figures have been obtained using a combination of battery power and petrol fuel after the battery had been fully charged. Plug-in hybrid vehicles and battery electric vehicles require mains electricity for charging. The CO2 emissions labels are determined according to Directive 1999/94/EC and the Passenger Car (Fuel consumption and CO2 Emissions Information) Regulations 2001, as amended. They are based on the fuel consumption, CO2 values and energy consumptions according to the NEDC cycle.

A guide on fuel economy and CO2 emissions which contains data for all new passenger car models is available at any point of sale free of charge. For further information you can also visit this link.
