Okay so what we are talking about - in initial form - is essentially a would-be "6 Series ActiveHybrid" but with different styling, plus some other tricks and tech that fall under the "Efficient Dynamics" umbrella.

It'll be a cool car, but I think the hype around this car is already getting out of hand, and it seems to me there will be some inevitable "WTF?" when details are released. I am sure BMW can find customers for this. However, I just don't get the feeling it is a game changer like the Megacity is shaping up to be. But, I am going to hold off passing too much judgment until more information trickles out in the coming years.

It will use the same shape and still be a four seater.
There is no plans for an "M" as yet.
