The all-new BMW ActiveHybrid 7, the most efficient way to experience luxury and dynamics, was launched today at Bird Automotive, the BMW dealership in Gurgaon. The all-new BMW ActiveHybrid 7 seamlessly integrates the highly efficient combustion engine and energy-saving electric motor to increase the efficiency while delivering the driving dynamics typical of BMW.
The all-new BMW ActiveHybrid 7 is available at BMW dealerships in Delhi NCR (National Capital Region), Mumbai and Chennai as a CBU (Completely built-Up) unit from today onwards.
Philipp von Sahr, President, BMW Group India said, “Hybrid vehicles are milestones in a time of change toward low-emission driving. It’s no coincidence that we call our hybrid models ‘BMW ActiveHybrid’. It’s because they supply the full dynamics of a BMW with outstanding efficiency. The all-new BMW ActiveHybrid 7 introduces a fundamentally new driving experience in the luxury segment that India has never seen before. It is the perfect choice to savour the agility and performance of a BMW 7 Series in a hybrid vehicle, without having to compromise in any way on comfort or spaciousness.”
The all-new BMW ActiveHybrid 7 proves that a car can become more efficient while, at the same time, delivering even greater dynamics. This full hybrid has the latest and most innovative BMW ActiveHybrid technology. Using intelligent energy management, it captures surplus energy, stores it and then converts it back into motion whenever required.
The all-new BMW ActiveHybrid 7 is available at an all India ex-showroom price of INR 1,35,00,000.
The all-new BMW ActiveHybrid 7 is available in Alpine White as non-metallic paintwork and in the following nine metallic paintworks: Glacier Silver, Havanna, Sapphire Black, Cashmere Silver, Milano Beige, Space Grey, Imperial Blue Brilliant Effect, Sophisto Grey II Brilliant Effect and Mineral White. The exclusive Nappa leather upholstery is available in Black, Oyster, Ivory White/ Black, Saddle Brown light/ Black and Veneto Beige colour combinations. Interior trims offered are Fine-wood trim Burr Walnut with inlays, Fine-wood trim Ash Grain Anthracite, Fine-wood trim Fineline high-gloss and Fine-wood trim Polar Grain Light high-gloss.
The electric motor and petrol engine of the all-new BMW ActiveHybrid 7 work in perfect union supported by a lithium-ion high-performance battery and coordinated by an intelligent hybrid system. The BMW TwinPower Turbo six-cylinder in-line petrol engine with 235 kW (320 hp) and 450 Nm of torque is distinguished by its free-revving character and power delivery. Its tremendous thrust can even be perceptibly increased with temporary support from the 40 kW electric motor via the boost function, such as when overtaking. It provides impromptu extra power without any additional fuel consumption.
In hybrid performance, the all-new BMW ActiveHybrid 7 accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in only 5.7 seconds with a system output of up to 500 Nm of torque. In pure electric mode, the vehicle can be driven without generating local emissions at up to 60 km/h, with a range of up to four kilometres. The high-performance lithium-ion battery supplies the energy needed to run on electric motor alone with maximum efficiency. The innovative battery is charged on every journey and with the help of energy regeneration as soon as you lift off or apply the brake.
