BMW Cuts Starting Price for ActiveHybrid 7

August 10, 2012 :: Posted by - admin :: Category - Green Cars

Proof of the ActiveHybrid 7’s power is its ability to run from a standstill to 60 mph in just 5 seconds. Compared to other hybrid models, the ActiveHybrid 7 is indeed powerful. On top of that, drivers will not need to worry about fuel economy because a significant portion of power delivered by the engine is shouldered by the electric motor. Official figures are yet to be released but tests in EU are suggestive that there are fuel efficiency gains up to 14%.
The enhanced statistics is not brought by the engine alone because the 2012 ActiveHybrid is packed with fuel efficient features. Apart from the electric motor, the ActiveHybrid 7 features the ECO Pro. It is capable of proactive analysis as well as coasting function that assist the drive system to adjust to different situation as you approach the road. It is also capable of regenerating energy produced during braking and a start-stop hybrid function. With electric power alone, it can travel 2.5 miles.
Indeed, hybrid technology has gone significantly far – far enough to bring fuel efficiency and performance together. Car shoppers can expect that other hybrid cars will follow the trend that BMW seems to start.
