BMW 5 Series ActiveHybrid 2013


BMW has taken the development of intelligent hybrid drive systems to the next level with the introduction of the BMW ActiveHybrid 5. This model will be in mass production with an internal combustion engine and electric motor, which improve efficiency. The BMW ActiveHybrid 5 is united by a BMW TwinPower Turbo six-cylinder in-line engine, an electric drive system and an eight-speed automatic transmission.

The latest generation of BMW ActiveHybrid technology is precisely controlled and highly efficient using intelligent energy management. All this gives the BMW ActiveHybrid 5 an exceptional balance of performance and fuel economy for premium class cars. The drive system generates combined output of 250 kW and 340 horsepower and allows the car to run with electricity up to 60 km / h.

Acceleration of the BMW ActiveHybrid 5 from 0 to 100 km / h takes 5.9 seconds. The average fuel consumption has been reduced to 6.4 and 7.0 litres per 100 kilometers. The 225 kW/306 hp six-cylinder in-line engine with BMW TwinPower Turbo technology is known for its ability to free-revving, traction and efficiency.

The electric motor, meanwhile, creates 40 kW and 55 horsepower. The system is supplied with energy from the high-performance lithium-ion batteries integrated into the luggage compartment. The power of the two drive systems is transferred to the rear wheels by the eight-speed automatic transmission. The full hybrid design enables the car to release less harmful emissions.

The BMW ActiveHybrid 5 boasts not only high sports performance, but also a significant improvement in fuel economy. The BMW ActiveHybrid uses intelligent energy management of the powered electronics and uses many innovative features to ensure efficient propulsion.

The electric motor assists the petrol engine by generating an ultra-dynamic burst of power. Furthermore, while the vehicle is moving at speeds up to 160 km / h in ECO mode PRO, the combustion engine can be switched off.

This mode combines comfortable driving momentum with optimum utilization of the kinetic energy generated. To avoid periods with the car engine running at idle - at junctions or in traffic, BMW ActiveHybrid 5 is equipped with a hybrid start-stop function. Furthermore, the powered electronics in the BMW ActiveHybrid 5 are equipped with a standard linked navigation system. All the hybrid-specific components of the drive technology and energy management systems have been developed specifically for use in the BMW ActiveHybrid 5.

The overall concept also provides a convincing demonstration of the qualities of the BMW ActiveHybrid technology on the road. Needless to say that all new hybrid components are designed to have a long life. The BMW ActiveHybrid 5 has a sporty look, but the sleek design of the BMW 5 Series Sedan. The car comes with 18-inch alloy wheels, which shows outstanding aerodynamic efficiency.

Due to customer preference, G-POWER, which is well known for modifying the powerful M model BMW's, is now focused on the luxury range and developed an overall concept which optimally adjusts aerodynamics and increased productivity engines. TwinPower Turbo chargers took a major part in improving performance for the 6.0l V12 bi-turbo engine.

In cooperation with compressor manufacturer ASA, BMW has improved the performance of the two turbochargers to significantly improve performance without affecting endurance. As a result, the maximum boost pressure will now increase to 0.9 bar from it's original 0.5 bar.

The new system puts out an extra 181 horsepower or 133 kW, which enhance the overall performance to 725 horsepower at 5500 rpm with a maximum torque of 1000 Nm at 2000 rpm.

To achieve these impressive results, larger valves for injection and an all-new exhaust system for the reduction of dynamic pressure have been incorporated. The 8-speed gearbox of the BMW has also changed in order to achieve an overall harmonious package. The enormous performance potential of the BMW V12 bi-turbo engine modified by G-POWER allows the G-POWER 760i to stand in the upper range of cars in this class.

These cars are so desirable that BMW had to create waiting lists for all of the people who wanted to buy them. After about three years of ownership, the MINI can be sold at a good price, which equals about 70% of the original value. The MINI Cooper S, whose engine has an output of 170 hp, consumes a mere 8.6 liters of fuel per 100km.

The first models had some issues with reliability, but things have changes as BMW has upped the standards of these vehicles. The multiplex system increases electrical reliability and allows more advanced features that can be interconnected. Standard MINI cars have four airbags integrated and side curtains can be ordered as extras.

Buyers can also choose between braking systems with and without traction control. The MINI has most of the security features found in any other BMR brand car. The interior of the new MINI is highly modified and improved compared to the classic models. The seats are comfortable and hug the body of the driver.

The MINI dashboard comes with interesting and elegant design that fits perfectly. The MINI has four seats and the rear of the vehicle is quite suitable for young children.
