THE TECHNOLOGY IN THE BMW CONCEPT
5 SERIES ACTIVE HYBRID.
In the BMW Concept 5 Series ActiveHybrid all of the hybrid components compliment one another perfectly ensuring breathtaking dynamics can be enjoyed with a clear conscience thanks to outstanding fuel consumption and emission values. The BMW Concept 5 Series ActiveHybrid is the first BMW hybrid vehicle to feature a straight six-cylinder petrol engine with TwinPower Turbo technology that, in combination with a 40 kW electric motor, provides significantly reduced fuel consumption levels and maximum dynamics. Thanks to the hybrid engine boost function, engine power is additionally enhanced when needed using energy from the lithium-ion high-voltage battery to increase overall short-term performance. The eight-speed automatic transmission also provides additional dynamics and efficiency thanks to fast and effective gear shifts without the slightest loss of power. The BMW Concept 5 Series ActiveHybrid is also one of the first BMW automobiles with an automatic transmission to feature the Auto Start Stop function which saves fuel whenever the vehicle comes to a standstill and therefore reduces emission levels.
