At BMW, sustainable mobility starts well before a vehicle first touches the road. It begins with a considered use of materials and energy-saving processes. It’s a commitment that goes beyond boosting adrenaline, to create a sophisticated level of performance that can live well into the future. The all-new BMW ActiveE represents the latest milestone in the development of groundbreaking vehicle concepts and technologies. Stemming from ongoing research as part of BMW EfficientDynamics, its powerful electric motor, aerodynamic enhancements and advanced battery technology will become the catalysts for CO 2 -free driving in the future. The BMW ActiveE, and its drivers, will provide valuable insight into how BMW can revolutionize the future of mobility. It’s a vehicle as extraordinary as the driving experience it creates.
HOW IT WORKS.
While there are unique features specific to the BMW ActiveE and electromobility, the pure, on-road exhilaration inherent to every Ultimate Driving Machine® is the same — minus the tailpipe emissions, of course. The BMW ActiveE begins with an impressive start. Its synchronous motor develops full torque from a standstill to accelerate from 0–60 mph in under 9 seconds.* That’s an instantaneous 184 lb-ft of torque with up to 170 hp. Positioned directly on the rear axle, this electric motor has no clutch, or conventional gearbox. This enables it to deliver seamless, uninterrupted torque at all speeds. The unique position of the motor also accommodates newly developed lithium-ion batteries that facilitate a driving range of up to 100 miles on a full charge.
100% ELECTRIC.*Based on BMW AG test results
Most BMW ActiveE drivers will charge their vehicle at home — akin to having a gas station in their own garage — where the BMW ActiveE can easily reach a complete charge overnight. This means a driver will be able to wake up with a “full tank” each morning, enabling them to travel approximately 100 miles without needing to recharge. In the United States, well over 90% of drivers average less than that in a day. In fact, most Americans average less than 30 miles in 24 hours.**
Getting a full charge, which gives about 100 miles of driving range, takes about four to five hours — making it one of the quickest electric vehicles to charge. Additionally, plugging in the BMW ActiveE takes less than five seconds.
