Aside from the "ActiveHybrid 3" badges and the distinctively bespoke alloy wheels it is hard to distinguish the 2013 BMW ActiveHybrid 3 from a BMW 335i Sportline. Under the hood the ActiveHybrid 3 is powered by a 306 horsepower inline 6 twin power turbo found in the BMW 335i but with a little extra something special, an additional 55 horsepower from an electric motor. 0-100kms in only 5.3 seconds! And the best part? 5.9L / 100kms, a marriage between performance and efficiency. Click read more for the Press Release and a full gallery.

This year’s Tokyo Show is hosted the world premiere of the new BMW ActiveHybrid 5. The full-hybrid Sedan brings together a six-cylinder in-line gasoline engine, an electric drive system, an eight-speed automatic gearbox and a high-performance lithium-ion battery. This package of technology allows the brand’s third hybrid model to be driven on purely electric power around town, offers drivers a boost function delivering extremely dynamic acceleration, and enables the car to coast with the combustion engine switched off. The BMW ActiveHybrid 5 also comes with a globally unique intelligent energy management system, which works in tandem with the navigation system to prepare the car’s drive functions in advance for upcoming road conditions.
