Seungmo Lim, a graduate student at Pforzheim University in Germany who professionally designed the new BMW Sequence GT concept car. The idea of this concept has start after the designer find out that people were asking about the importance of the hybrid cars and also that people were asking what is Efficient Dynamics so he wanted to answer at those questions by making this concept.

The car has a highly personalized front to provide better aerodynamics, the two large nostrils on each side of the inlet for cooling motor, so that they function to maximize efficiency. Within the body has four independent seats, one minute to complete the battery replacement.

Lim explains that the “Electric Gran Turismo Sequence” project started out with two questions: 1) “How important is the appearance of green cars?”, and 2) “What is ‘Efficient dynamics’?”

“In other words these two questions mean, ‘What kind of qualification does a blue or green car have to have in order to get a BMW badge in the future?'”

I’ve got no idea, so it’s good that he came up with an answer: Combining “driving pleasure with blue architecture.”

The concept would make use of wheel-mounted motors (optimizing space) while featuring new kidney placement (for motor-cooling and BMW-ness). With those oddly-placed nose prongs and kidneys, the Sequence is surely interesting to look at. As Lim says, “One more peculiarity of Sequence is a big twisting surface starting from front fender to the shoulder. It gives the car a very dramatic appearance and characteristic”.

The designer also hopes for the future by making use of Better Place’s recharging system, which “allows you to drive into the station where a machine, installed under the ground, changes the battery within one minute. Solar panels are then used by the station in order to recharge the batteries without any emissions”.
