BMW Active Hybrid 7 Individual Edition

Hybrid cars keep the headlines of every automobile focused magazine. We are in the middle of the eco-friendly vehicles and the reasons which convinced even the most important brands to invest in them are not few. Of course, BMW is already a declared supporter of the hybrid and electric vehicles, despite its impressive history in the conventional engines. Therefore, the German company has just introduced the BMW Active Hybrid 7 Individual Edition in Japan.

The BMW Active Hybrid 7 Individual Edition will be available only in Mineral White or Citrine Black. Exterior modifications aren’t that many, but they can be quite impressive. We can notice a sunroof, BMW Individual badging and a set of 20-inch alloy wheels. On the inside, the situation is completely different. There are plenty of changes and the most notable ones are premium Merino leather upholstery, an Alcantara roof liner and a wood or leather steering. The car also features BMW Individual sill plates and piano black, ash grain white or walnut satin honey brown wood trim.

The BMW Active Hybrid 7 Individual Edition is powered by a TwinPower Turbo 3.0-liter six-cylinder engine, an electric motor and a lithium-ion battery. This configuration allows the model to generate a combined maximum output of 354 PS (260 kW / 349 bhp) and 500 Nm (369 lb-ft) of torque. The electric sedan can do the 0-100 km/h distance in 5.7 seconds, average of 6.8L/100km (34.5 mpg US / 41.5 mpg UK) and travel up to 4 km (2.4 miles) on electricity alone. The edition will be limited to 20 vehicles, each having a starting price of ¥13,100,000 ($120,095 / €95,450 / £74,995).
