BMW's hybrid electric i8, which is expected to hit the streets in 2014, will use two distinct drive systems. The front axle will employ the i3's 170HP electric motor, while a 220HP, three-cylinder internal combustion engine will drive the rear. Using that arrangement, all four wheels of the i8 will be driven at the same time, in a manner similar to that of an all-wheel-drive vehicle. (Source: Design News)

Chuck, So will you tell us which of these developments you consider to be the most interesting, or is that putting you too much on the spot?

NO RATINGS
These are great Chuck. Thanks. I wish I could have been there myself. We always see these amazing concept cars. I always wonder why we never see them come to production, or very few. And who gets to keep those concept cars?

 

You mentioned a car with a 17-in. display. Like drivers don't have enough to be distracted by?
