The new BMW ActiveHybrid 3 is the world’s first BMW sports saloon with hybrid technology. Combining dynamics and efficiency in a unique way, combustion engine and electric motor work together efficiently and harmoniously. It’s all down to intelligent energy management, which makes sure energy is only used when it’s needed. The new BMW ActiveHybrid 3 makes purely electrical driving possible – for example, in urban traffic – or uses the boost function to supply extra power when overtaking. Additional features include the Driving Experience Modes, which allow you to define your driving style and the Hybrid Start Stop function.
NB. The ActiveHybrid 3 Modern model is no longer available in the UK (post July 2013).
