BMW’s new hybrid concept, the Vision EfficientDynamics, made its way to the LA Auto Show and it didn’t take long for the car to attract quite an audience; the most noteworthy of which is California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger himself.

During his press conference highlighting green cars, the ‘Governator’ got a chance to get behind the wheel of the Vision EfficientDynamics concept where he was given a quick tour of the vehicle by Peter Miles, BMW of North America’s executive vice president of operations.

After making its world debut at the Frankfurt Motor Show, BMW’s Vision EfficientDynamics concept captured the world’s attention mostly because of its revolutionary design and never-before heard of performance capabilities, including the capacity to travel 431 miles before it needs to be recharged and refuelled.

And while most Americans have waited months to see the car up-close, their wait has finally come to an end when the Vision EfficientDynamics makes its long-awaited appearance at the Los Angeles Auto Show.

And as always, Governor Schwarzenegger got first dibs on getting as close as close can get on the car.

Kirby’s first exposure into the world of automobiles happened when he caught Knight Rider on television as a five-year old boy. David Hasselhoff didn’t leave much of an impression on him (that happened later on in Baywatch), but KITT certainly did. To this day, Kirby remains convinced that he will one day own a car with the same ‘spirit’ as the original KITT (not the 2008 monstrosity). He doesn't know when that will be, but until then, he’s committed to expressing his love for KITT, and all cars for that matter, here at TopSpeed.  Read More

Just like the date of Schwarzenegger to the Audi E-Tron, this was his favorite date of all as he’s on the driver’s seat that really enjoyed a lot to see his smile while on that BMW Vision EfficientDynamics. Well I personally be happy if I’m on his shoes.

Well it caught up my interest by looking at the gallery and check for more pictures of this car on the net. Of course as for a concept car, I may say it’s good. I hope BMW will work out that concept in the near future coz’ I think it will make a good impact on a car show.

Arnold is such a lucky guy. This car is so gorgeous. Why is he always the first one to come close to the most beautiful cars? Anyway, besides the the fact this Vision Efficient Dynamics is stylish and luxurious, it is also a very convenient car. To travel up to 431 miles without refueling is such a great pleasure for many drivers.
