The initial rumors about agreen sports car concept from BMW started appearing just the other day. Now, thanks to the German automotive journal Auto Motor Und Sport, we can reveal a few more details about the upcoming concept. The German Magazine reported that it will be called the M1 Hybrid Concept and that it will feature a hybrid drive train technology and will have the same dimensions as a 3-Series measuring 14.75 ft long. The exterior design will be inspired by the M1 Homage car of course.

Compared to the M1 Homage car, the new hybrid 2+2 model will be powered by an electric motor mounted at the front axle combined with a small internal combustion engine in the back. This will keep emissions under 100 g/km, and thanks of a low curb weight the BMW will offer the same performance as a Porsche 911.

Stay tuned for even more details!
