Bmw "ActiveHybrid 7"

The exterior

The BMW ActiveHybride 7 goes its own way – even when it comes to design. The discreet model logos on the C pillars and boot as well as the 19-inch Aero wheels Streamline perfectly express the vehicle's exclusive individuality. On both the normal or long version, with a 14 centimetre longer wheelbase, the large kidneys immediately indicate the power and presence that lies within. The distinctive rear rounds off the BMW ActiveHybrid 7's overall athletic appearance and underlines its pioneering character.




The interior


Exceptional comfort meets stylish elegance. In the cockpit Black Panel technology imparts a feeling of elegant functionality while cultivated and perfectly crafted materials, such as exclusive Dakota leather, add richness to the modern and spacious interior. In the long version, the longest wheelbase in its class provides even more space for maximum legroom in the rear. The individual rear seats, the extended rear air conditioning and rear-seat entertainment system complete the luxurious atmosphere.



The electric motor


Exactly what drivers dream of: the electric motor in the BMW ActiveHybride 7 provides high torque of up to 210 Nm even at low revs. Combined with the power of the BMW TwinPower Turbo V8 engine, the resulting performance is nothing short of impressive. When the driver takes his foot off the accelerator, the electric motor immediately becomes a generator which converts excess kinetic energy into electricity. The resulting valuable energy reserves are stored in the innovative lithium-ion battery until next needed for a fast acceleration manoeuvre.
 



BMW ActiveHybrid


BMW ActiveHybrid technology intelligently manages vehicle energy. Hybrid technology is implemented to increase both efficiency and dynamics in all driving situations and for all models.

By implementing BMW EfficientDynamics technologies, combustion engines have never been so economical. However, this doesn't mean we are now going to rest on our laurels - BMW ActiveHybrid technology is the next step that will continue to sink consumption and fuel levels even further in the medium term while maintaining the high levels of performance associated with BMW.
The BMW Concept ActiveHybrid impressively demonstrates how technology, design and driving features can all successfully work together. A key component in achieving both impressive efficiency and driving pleasure in BMW vehicles with ActiveHybrid is the two-mode active transmission which links the combustion engine with two high-performance electric motors.
Developed as part of the Global Hybrid Cooperation, the two-mode active transmission uses planetary gear sets to variably split the power between the different units. The system switches between two operating modes according to need: one is used for moving off at high torque and low speed, the other for faster travelling speeds.
This ensures that power is optimally exploited depending on the particular driving situation. Fixed-ratio gears within the two operating modes furnish additional

benefits, boosting efficiency and driving dynamics across the entire speed range. Here the two electric motors can be used both during acceleration and for the recovery of brake energy. This energy, which is subsequently on tap to drive the vehicle, is provided practically free of charge.
Thus the BMW Concept ActiveHybrid always has the best of both worlds: it can be driven either in full electric mode, solely on power from the combustion engine, or in a combination of both drive sources. The only surprise is the fuel consumption and emission figures - which shave off up to 20 percent compared to a similar vehicle with conventional drive.


 

EfficientDynamics

Extracting maximum driving pleasure from every drop of fuel: this is the aim of BMW EfficientDynamics. With an array of intelligent technologies, BMW is able to reduce fuel consumption and CO2 emissions while simultaneously enhancing your vehicle's dynamic performance.

The array of leading-edge technologies that are part of the BMW EfficientDynamics philosophy are as diverse as they are innovative. From new fuel combustion technologies to lighter construction materials, low-friction components and improved aerodynamics all the way to comprehensive and highly sophisticated energy management. However, the aim of each of these innovations is the same: to deliver maximum driving pleasure from a minimum of fuel.
To achieve this aim, new engines have been developed: petrol engines with lean-burn technology and High Precision Injection. Diesel engines with third-generation common rail injection and light-weight materials that lead to a 20 kg reduction in weight.
The Auto Start Stop function and Brake Energy Regeneration make more of every drop of fuel. Improved aerodynamics - such as the innovative air vent control - together with tyres with reduced rolling resistance and a range of efficiency-enhancing modifications to the drivetrain all lead to the same result: more dynamic performance from less fuel.
How effective are these innovations? The figures speak for themselves: for every 100 km, the new BMW 120i (five-door) consumes one litre of fuel less than its predecessor, yet it can sprint from zero to 100 km/h one second faster.

Recycling

Even at the earliest stages of vehicle development and production, BMW considers what will happen at the end of the vehicle's service life, laying the foundations for environmentally-friendly recycling of the materials used in the vehicle. BMW ensures that wherever possible, different materials can be easily separated for efficient recycling. Right from the start, every BMW is built for minimal environmental impact.

BMW follows a philosophy of minimising negative effects on the environment through intelligent technological solutions. This extends from the earliest phases of product development to the final reprocessing and reuse of materials at the end of the vehicle's service life.
During the development of new vehicles, BMW engineers ensure that each component is designed for maximum environmental-friendliness and sustainability. Raw materials and energy are used as efficiently as possible, and waste is kept to an absolute minimum. Following the "design for recycling" principle, designers give preference to materials that can be produced cleanly and efficiently, and that can later be reused and recycled.
Recycling vehicles at the end of their service life is most efficient when components and materials can be separated and reused directly. For example, some components can be reused for their original purpose in a different vehicle: engines, transmission systems and other large components can be reconditioned and made available as spares.

This is known as "high-value recycling". By contrast, "material recycling" separates different types of materials - glass, polycarbonates or aluminium for example - and processes these to form the raw recycled material; this can be used as sources of energy or in manufacturing new products. For example, the inner wheel housing of new vehicles is comprised of recycled synthetics.
