BMW Brings Power to the Plug-In Hybrid Market

BMW has proved once again to the auto industry that you can have power and fuel efficiency. They introduced their Concept Active Tourer last month at the New York International Auto Show. The Concept Active Tourer is a plug-in hybrid with an electric motor and gas engine combination that packs a lot of power! The Concept Active Tourer is a slick, streamlined crossover with a long wheelbase and broad stance. Its rounded nose, sharp lines, 20” wheels and short overhangs give it a very aggressive appearance. One of the coolest details is the “Cool Shade” panorama roof, which is controlled by an iPhone app. You can use the app to vary the amount of light let into the cabin! Another fun aspect is the color changing dash. When you are in ECO PRO mode, the dash will be a relaxing blue; when in Sport mode, the red color spices up your sporty mood. The power lies under a stylish hood that looks like liquid metal. It has a 1.5-liter three cylinder engine combined with an electric motor and a lithium-ion battery. The Concept Active Tourer has a horsepower of 190 and can accelerate you to 62 mph in under eight seconds…not too bad for a plug-in hybrid! Our staff, here at BMW of Bowling Green, hopes many of the concepts features of the The Concept Active Tourer turn up on a BMW production model.
