Do you really need the kidney grilles when it's an electric car that doesn't need *any* kind of grille?
The BMW i Vision Dynamics concept "offers a look ahead" to the near future of its electrified offerings.
When it comes to production, it'll slot between the i3 and the i8.
Unique style elements include a blacked-out B-pillar that gives the side windows a look of seamlessness, which is a fun little spin on the "floating roof" trend.
The windscreen also blends right into the roof, making the car look more glass than steel.
The headlights are sharp, but the whole rear end is a bit over-sculpted.
BMW decided to shellac a modified set of its classic kidney "grilles" on the front of the car.
The only problem is, electric cars don't really need the same kind of airflow through the front end.
Hopefully, BMW figures something else out before it comes to production.
Under the body is a battery-electric drivetrain that provides a range of 373 miles.
The top speed is over 120 mph, but it'll hit 62 mph in less than 4 seconds, which is rather quick.
