NEXT-GENERATION EFFICIENCY.
Can a vehicle become ever-more efficient while becoming increasingly dynamic at the same time? Yes it can. The BMW ActiveHybrid  delivers the proof. With its
intelligent drive concept, the first full hybrid BMW saloon presents the next BMW ActiveHybrid generation. The BMW ActiveHybrid , with its superior agility and
unique design, offers the perfect combination of dynamism and elegance. This third BMW ActiveHybrid model also delivers optimised performance through intelligent
Energy Management. Purely electric driving for considerable distances (silent gliding with the combustion engine switched off), and even more intense acceleration
thanks to the Boost function all ensure an entirely new driving experience. Indeed, developments in the BMW ActiveHybrid , in tandem with BMW EfficientDynamics
measures, signify another stride into the future by substantially reducing fuel consumption and CO emissions, and palpably improving driving pleasure.
THE BEST PERFORMANCE IS TEAM PERFORMANCE.
In the BMW ActiveHybrid , united performance means increased efficiency. For the first time, the interplay of all hybrid components is controlled by the intelligent Energy
Management system and individually calculated for every journey. The latest technology makes it possible to drive using only electric power for three kilometres at up to
km/h. Additionally, the combination of the electric motor and the BMW TwinPower Turbo inline six-cylinder petrol engine offers typical BMW driving dynamics, while fuel
consumption and emissions also impress. For a high system output of kW (hp), the car consumes, on average, just . –. litres per km and emits  –g of
CO per kilometre. In short, the BMW ActiveHybrid  is an outstanding example of how you can continue enjoying driving pleasure to the full well into the future.

. Electric motor. Situated between the combustion engine and
the gearbox, the kW motor supplies enough power for purely
electric driving and supports acceleration with the Boost function.
This provides a noticeable increase in dynamics and reduces fuel
consumption and emissions. Homezone: when navigation is active,
the high-performance battery in the car is charged, so you can drive
purely on electric power when you are within your Homezone.
. Lithium-ion high-performance battery. For maximum ef�ciency,
the lithium-ion high-performance battery supplies energy to drive
the BMW ActiveHybrid  purely electrically. This innovative battery
is charged on every journey and is also linked to the brake energy
regeneration system as soon as you take your foot off the accelerator.
The lithium-ion high-performance battery is also distinguished by a
long service life and comes with a special certi�cate offering cover
for the �rst ,km and a maximum of �ve years.
The BMW ActiveHybrid  is the first of the
BMW hybrids with a BMW TwinPower Turbo
inline six-cylinder petrol engine. This, in
combination with the electric motor, achieves
maximum dynamics with markedly reduced
fuel consumption. In addition, the following
features provide increased efficiency: eightspeed automatic gearbox, hybrid
Start/Stop function, air vent control,
Electric Power Steering, Brake Energy
Regeneration and reduced rolling resistance
tyres. All these BMW EfficientDynamics
measures contribute to double-figure percentage
savings in fuel consumption while, at the same
time, ensuring the typical BMW driving experience.
Accelerating ef�ciency. With the Boost
function, the powerful interplay of the
two power units delivers impressive results
during acceleration and overtaking. In these
cases, the increased output required of
the electric motor is achieved by sourcing
stored energy created by the brake energy
regeneration system.
ECO PRO mode is activated via the Driving
Experience Control function. When the
driver takes his foot off the accelerator when
ECO PRO is on, the engine switches off
and the gearbox connection is disengaged,
allowing the BMW to glide noiselessly at up
to km/h.

EFFICIENCYTAINMENT.
. Auxiliary climate control. With this system, the BMW ActiveHybrid 
can be cooled by the air conditioning several minutes before people
get in to the car. This is done by the electric climate compressor and
without using fuel. Auxiliary climate control can be remotely activated
simply by using the car key.
. Eight-speed automatic transmission. Not only does this
ensure fast gear changes without loss of traction, thanks to automatic
coupling, the eight-speed gearbox also regulates interaction between
the combustion engine and the electric motor. Additionally, and
in combination with the hybrid Start/Stop function, it makes a
considerable contribution to reducing fuel consumption and
emissions.
More ef�ciency through intelligent Energy Management.
Networking between the navigation system and the vehicle allows
calculations to be made that ensure optimum energy use. When
the lithium-ion high-performance battery is charged, the electric
motor supports the engine on uphill sections. Going downhill,
the high-performance battery is automatically charged again.

Less emissions. More driving pleasure.
Brake Energy Regeneration.
When the driver releases
the throttle, kinetic energy is
converted into electrical energy
and stored in the lithium-ion
high-performance battery.
Electric driving. The kW
electric motor enables purely
electric driving over long
distances.
Boost function. When needed,
drive power of the inline sixcylinder engine is supplemented
by energy from the electric motor,
increasing total power output
for short periods. One advantage
of this technology is a strong,
spontaneous surge in power.
Energy consumption history.
The use of electric energy during
the last  minutes of driving is
shown in a bar chart. The longer
the bar, the higher the use
of the hybrid system and the
greater the fuel savings.
