    Default BMW's new Concept Hybrid Vehicle

    When an automaker wants to 'test the water' and get customer opinions on their future ideas, they build what is called a 'concept' vehicle.

    The BMW i-3 Concept vehicle has some interesting features. If they ever become a part of a future BMW hybrid, then rescue personnel will have some interesting challenges in store for them.

    I particularly like the glass paneled doors. All we would need would be a spring-loaded center punch!

    Besides the smaller size BMW concept Hybrid, the i-3, there is a Big Brother, the i-8.

    Here he is...

    Is that the Flux Capacitor built into the center console?

    Anyone ever cut a Delorean? Do the gull doors present a problem? I wouldn't think the different door angles would present a problem here other then you'd have to be aware of them and adapt accordingly. The strut at the base of the A-post would also be something to be aware of.
