2013 BMW ActiveHybrid 5: Officially Launched

2013 BMW ActiveHybrid 5: Officially Launched, Please visit - www.easternmotors.info
This past few days the battle for the bragging rights for having a vehicle that is powerful but very fuel-efficient started. BMW, Toyota, and Lexus started their presence on that approach by showing their very impressive vehicles, and introducing new-technology and standards that other automaker kinda overlook — still busy manufacturing engine that still fully dependent on gasoline and diesel and I'm wondering what is their research and development are doing to innovate their companies.

Anyway, in terms of hybrid technology, Toyota and Lexus still have the edge; this past week, Toyota introduced TS030, their hybrid racing car and Lexus launches their luxurious hybrid, the Lexus GS450H — powerful yet efficient right?

BMW also introduced and impressed us with their vehicles that are powerful — I mean powerful —yet very efficient — I love their triple-turbo diesel variant.

And today, BMW will yet again impressed us with their official launched of the 2013 BMW ActiveHybrid 5; based on BMW Series 5 model that is fully hybrid, making it another first for the automaker.


A twin-turbo inline-six/straight-six engine layout, equipped with VALVETRONIC technolgy, 3.0 litres engine displacement, and has an output of 306hp at 5800 rpm and 400Nm of Torque; the electric motor has has an output of 55hp and 210Nm of torque. With total power output on both engine of 340hp and a torque of 340Nm you will definitely go wrong with it, because of power, fuel-efficiency, plus luxury. Data on its fuel consumption, it has a 6.4–7.0 litres/100 kilometres or 40–44 mpg imp — an impressive engine.

Other impressive fuel-efficient technology equipped in this car are the ECO mode, Start-stop function, and Coasting mode.

Start-stop function do, is when the vehicle is at full-stop, the engine will automatically turn-off, but still maintaining it climate inside using a stationary climate-control, as if the car was running; the ECO Mode supports a particularly fuel-efficient driving style and makes more frequent use of all-electric mode by modifying the characteristics of the powertrain, including the transmission, while the electrically powered convenience functions are set for optimal efficiency; and the Coasting mode do is, it shuts-down the internal-combustion engine and disconnects it from the driveshaft making fuel-efficient.
