BMW ActiveE Revealed Ahead Of Geneva Debut

BMW ActiveE

BMW ActiveE is a new electric vehicle based on the 1 Series Coupe, that will be offered for lease later this year in U.S., China and Europe. A test fleet of over 1000 BMW ActiveE vehicles will be produced at BMW’s Leipzig plant.

The ultimate goal of all this test fleet is the concept of a 2013 Megacity Vehicle (MCV) that meets the demands of a sustainable mobility solution for congested urban areas. The drive components and battery technology that will be used in the MCV are being tested in the BMW ActiveE.

The ActiveE is motivated by an electric motor that produces 170bhp and 184 lb-ft of torque. Power to the motor comes from a lithium-ion battery pack that offers enough energy to travel approximately 100 miles from a single charge. 0-60mph comes in under nine seconds and the top speed is around 90mph.

For more details about the BMW ActiveE take a look at the press release below.
