BMW's Diesel Hybrid Gets 63mpg and Is Racecar Fast, Too

BMW's EfficientDynamics Vision concept car combines the best of all worlds with incredible fuel efficiency, breaktaking performance, and sensational looks.

It's powered by a three-cylinder turbo-diesel engine, lithium polymer batteries, and electric motors front and rear. The first 31 miles each day are on battery power. The BMW Vision gets a U.S. unveiling next week at the Los Angeles Auto Show, Dec. 4-13.

The only bad news: The BMW Vision is more vision than production-ready concept car. What you'd most likely see on sale would be the key components such as the drivetrain and battery technology transplanted to a more mainstream body.
