The BMW iVision Dynamics is expected to go into production soon and will slot between the i3 hatchback and the i8 sports vehicle. In profile it reveals typical BMW proportions with a mildly truncated rear end, a long wheelbase and wheels pushed out to the corners. The concept shows a new interpretation of BMW's signature kidney grille and four-eyed light setup and a huge glass panel on the roof looks like a feature that could make it onto the production model.

In terms of dimensions the i Vision Dynamics sits about half way between a current 3-series and 5-series in terms of length and width while it is considerably lower than both of those models. With cars like the i3 and the i8, we have seen BMW supporting electric mobility and with their recent unveiling of the iVision Dynamics Concept, it is clear that they intend to expand their portfolio further.
