As far as fuel consumption goes, BMW claims 3 liters per 100 km (62 miles), with 30 kilometres (19 miles) of autonomy on electric power alone
."
Powering the concept will be a plug-in hybrid system that uses a 1.5-liter turbo three-cylinder at the back and electric motor at the front. Combined output for the concept is supposed to be 349 horsepower. The i8 is also a plug-in hybrid that can travel 20 miles on electric power alone and take two hours to charge.

"It's hard to imagine what led Pascal Prokop to install a wood-burning stove in his 1990 Volvo 240 station wagon. Though we're safe to say that the trend won't catch like wildfire. Prokob built and installed the wood-fired stove himself and got an operating permit from the Swiss technical inspection authority. "

Self-driving BMW

Selfdriving BMW

BMW announced their ConnectedDrive Connect (CDC) semi-autonomous driving system, and has just released a new video of it in action. It uses four types of sensors, radar, cameras, laser scanners and ultrasound distance sensors, to stay aware of the car's surroundings. Check out the video.
"However, when the car senses it is behind a slowpoke, it looks for an open lane where it can safely merge at speeds up to 130 km/h (81 mph). If an opening is found, the system will steer the vehicle into that lane, pass the slower vehicle and return to its original lane.
As Dr. Nico Kaempchen explains, "Our main challenge was to develop algorithms that can handle entirely new situations. In principal, the system works on all freeways that we have mapped out beforehand with [a] centimeter accuracy." He goes on to say CDC ensures the car "adheres to all traffic laws" and sticks to the speed limit."
