Paris Debut for BMW 6-Series Coupe

BMW is going for a sleeker, more elegant look for their new 6-Series coupe, which is planned to make its debut at the 2010 Paris Motor Show.

BMW i100 Coupe Hybrid

Since 2008, BMW has worked on perfecting its ActiveHybrid technology - combining luxury performance and the green car culture. A new report out of Germany is suggesting a production version of the BMW Vision EfficientDynamics Concept is coming out soon.

It could be dubbed the BMW i100 Coupe ActiveHybrid, that is if it's finally launched sometime in 2013.

It is an obvious attempt to break away from the series-based nomenclature BMW has been known to use and draw some inspiration from the M1 moniker, but i100 seems more likely to end up being the first of a larger "1-Series."

Regardless…

BMW has let another rendering slip, but whether or not this was on accident or merely a creative publicity stunt, well we may never know. But one thing is for certain, we know what the 2011-2012 BMW 6-Series Cabrio production model will look like.
