So we already chattered about the BMW Concept Active Tourer. For BMW it is a approach to a complete new car, a totally new class. The concept is first of its kind for BMW in the premium compact segment.
But it’s not only the class. It’s not only the design.

As a plug-in hybrid, the BMW Concept Active Tourer also provides a glimpse ahead to future drive variants in BMW automobiles of the compact class. The electrified car is driven by the “eDrive” technology, which is familiar to the BMW i8. Here, it is used for the first time in a model of the core BMW brand. All hybrids and pure electric cars will be given the “eDrive” label in future.

The BMW Concept Active Tourer has been designed as a so-called plug-in hybrid – combining an electric drive with a classic combustion engine. In the case of the BMW Concept Active Tourer, a new developed 1.5-litre petrol engine interacts with a synchronous electric motor. The system output is about 190 breaking horse powers (140 kW) while combine the combustion engine and electric motor.

But when it comes to the show car BMW Active Tourer, most people ask themselves: “Will the concept drive in real?” And, well… yes, it will. It already did. the video above is the proof (Dr. Ian Robertson (HonDSc), Member of the Board of Management of BMW AG, Sales and Marketing ist the man presenting it).
