BMW ActiveHybrid 3: Performance hybrid

Performance hybrid.

The electric motor and combustion engine of the BMW ActiveHybrid 3 work in perfect union, supported by a lithium-ion high-performance battery and coordinated by an intelligent hybrid system. The result is maximum efficiency and maximum dynamics.

In addition to its reduced fuel consumption figures in the two-digit percentage range*, the new BMW ActiveHybrid 3 also impresses with a unique combination of BMW TwinPower Turbo straight 6-cylinder petrol engine and electric motor.

In urban traffic – whenever it makes sense in energy terms – driving takes place purely electrically and hence locally emission-free. The electric motor then draws its energy from the lithium-ion high-performance battery, in which the power obtained from energy recovery is stored. This energy is only used when it is really needed. As a result, the electric boost function only becomes active during overtaking manoeuvres or on uphill gradients to support the combustion engine with additional output.

The 225 kW (306 hp) BMW TwinPower Turbo inline 6-cylinder petrol engine and the electric motor with up to 40 kW (54 hp) produce a maximum output for the system of 250 kW (340 hp) and accelerate the vehicle from 0-100 km/h in 5.3 seconds. This very high output potential is in stark contrast to the extremely low fuel consumption values: the average figure in the EU test cycle is 5.9 litres per 100 kilometres, while CO2 emissions are 139 grams/kilometre**. This means the BMW ActiveHybrid 3 fulfils the emission norm EU6 as standard.

The lithium-ion high-performance battery is characterised by its long life expectancy and is accompanied by a special certificate which offers coverage for the first 100,000 km or maximum five years, whichever comes first.

* Saving compared to comparable vehicle with conventional drive system (335i) is 25% (manual transmission) or 18% (automatic transmission) respectively.
** Values determined on the basis of the ECE test cycle.
