The electric motor and the combustion engine of the BMW ActiveHybrid 7 work in perfect union – supported by a lithium-ion high-performance battery, coordinated by an intelligent hybrid system. The result: maximum efficiency with maximum dynamics.
When you activate the ECO PRO Mode on the Driving Experience Control, all the on-board systems are set to maximum efficiency. At the touch of a button, visionary concepts and innovative technologies are interconnected to dramatically minimise fuel consumption and CO2 emissions, such as through electric driving. If, on the other hand, you select the SPORT or SPORT+ driving mode, the BMW ActiveHybrid 7 reveals its dynamic genes, honing the parameters for accelerator pedal, steering, engine and transmission. The BMW TwinTurbo straight six-cylinder petrol engine with 235 kW (320 hp) and 450 Nm of torque is simply the epitome of highly relaxed smooth running and is capable of sudden breathtaking feats. Its tremendous thrust can even be perceptibly increased when it receives temporary support from the 40 kW electric motor via the boost function, such as when overtaking. It provides impromptu extra power without any additional fuel consumption. Hybrid performance will inspire and accelerate you from 0 to 100 km/h in only 5.7 seconds with a system output of up to 500 Nm of torque.
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.
