BMW has joined the hybrid crowd and has announced it will launch a new pair of vehicles later this year according to DailyTech. The BMW ActiveHybrid X6 mates a 400 horsepower twin-turbo V8 with two electric synchronous motors that develop 91 and 86 hp, respectively. The maximum effective output of the entire system is 480 horsepower and 575 lb-ft of torque, which is good enough to send the SUV to 60 mph in 5.4 seconds while achieving 20 percent better fuel economy compared with the standard X6--and 231 grams of CO2 per kilometer.
The automaker also announced the BMW ActiveHybrid 7, a luxury sedan based on the 750i that uses a similar three-motor drivetrain as the ActiveHybrid X6. In this application, the system makes 455 effective hp and 516 lb-ft of torque, and comes with an 8-speed automatic and a lithium-ion battery that powers the two electric motors.
