At the Leipzig trade fair centre BMW is presenting a road-ready technology showcase vehicle based on the BMW Vision EfficientDynamics concept.
The ActiveHybrid powertrain features a 3-cylinder turbo diesel engine coupled with a hybrid synchronous motor at the front axle and a full-hybrid engine at the rear axle, for a total output of 241 kW/328 bhp.
The main performances are a 0-100 km/h sprint in 4.8 seconds, average fuel consumption in the EU test cycle of 3.76 l/100 kilometers and a CO2 emission rating of 99 g/km.
The BMW Group is undertaking extensive field tests in regular traffic, with the MINI E and -soon – the BMW ActiveE.
The first purely electrically powered model – called Megacity Vehicle – will be produced at the Leipzig plant from 2013.
