BMW is one of the top luxury automakers in the world. Its products sell from India to China and Japan to the USA. The BMW is also keeping pace with the latest technology and innovations in fuel economy.
The BMW is now set to launch a hybrid car for 2013. Titled the Active Hybrid this car is a real innovation with multiple fuel options. Prices of the new model will have a base price of $ 50,195. This is the price for the smallest hybrid model which will be based on the latest BMW 3 series. It will also have alarger version called the Active hybrid 5 sedan.
The Active hybrid 3 will have a turbocharged 3.0 liter in line six cylinder engine. it will also have an electric combo to propel it and that is a tremendous innovation. The 3.0 liter engine will not be a gas guzzler, but will be sporty with a system output of 335hp. If youwant to know the performance than it can go from 0-62 mph in just 5.3 seconds. It will also have an electric option at the flick of a switch which will allow you to travel up to 2.5 km of electric only driving so long as you stay within the permissable speed limit of 45 mph.
The Active hybrid 3 will be easy to service. It will be available in 4 trim levels for which the BMW is famous. It will come in a Sport, Modern, Luxury and M-sport model. The prices will vary accordingly. It wil have 18 inch alloy wheels which should give it a good grip on the road. The car interiors have been given special attention with all satin finish for added comfort.
There are many question for the hybrid, particularly with regard to the electric traction. But I suppose one will have to await the product as it hits the road.
