Power without the petrol.

The electric motor in the BMW ActiveHybrid 7.

Exactly what drivers dream of: the electric motor in the BMW ActiveHybrid 7 provides high torque of up to 210 Nm even at low revs. Combined with the power of the BMW TwinPower Turbo V8 engine, the resulting performance is nothing short of impressive. When the driver takes his foot off the accelerator, the electric motor immediately becomes a generator which converts excess kinetic energy into electricity. The resulting valuable energy reserves are stored in the innovative lithium-ion battery until next needed for a fast acceleration manoeuvre.
