Wired: BMW?s 75-MPG Plug-In Sports Car Is a Go

BMW says its first plug-in hybrid will be an an all-wheel-drive sports car that performs like an M6, and we?ll see it in 2013.

The boys from Bavaria say the ?overwhelming response? the Vision Efficient Dynamics concept received at the Frankfurt auto show last year ? and the design awards it has won since ? prompted the brass to greenlight the project. We suspect the fact that Mercedes-Benz is developing the awesome electric AMG SLS Gullwing and that Porsche will build the amazing Porsche 918 hybrid supercar played a role in BMW?s decision as well.

?There was a widespread desire to put the car on the road, and the realization of this desire is moving considerably closer,? the company says.
