New BMW Concept 5-Series ActiveHybrid - Web Exclusive

Mar 1, 2010

BMW has introduced a 5-Series concept car that follows similar qualities of its ActiveHybrid X6 and 7-Series. The drive system featured consists of a straight-six gasoline engine with TwinPower Turbo technology, eight-speed automatic transmission, and electric drive. Integration of BMW ActiveHybrid technology in a sedan reduces both fuel consumption and emissions once again by more than 10%. At the same time the electric motor offers subtle boost, supporting the gasoline engine in generating power for a more sporting driving experience.

The drivetrain technology featured in the BMW Concept 5-Series ActiveHybrid allows all-electric, zero-emission motoring in city traffic. At the same time a special hybrid-based Auto Start Stop function offers additional efficiency by consistently switching off the combustion engine when completely stopped, much like what hybrid cars are already using like the Prius.

Earlier this year, Subaru announced the WRX STI would get a 5-horsepower boost for 2019. No, it wasn’t much, but at least the STI would no longer be outgunned by the turbocharged four-cylinder Mustang. Subaru’s latest special edition STI, however, comes with a much less underwhelming boost in power. It’s called the WRX STI TC 380, and
