The German based automaker BMW has recently announced that some of its models will be presented to the Asian public at this year’s Tokyo Motor Show, like the ActiveHybrid 5, or some new generation four-cylinder petrol engines, which are powering the X1 xDrive20i or the 1-Series.

As you probably already know, the BMW ActiveHybrid 5 is a hybrid version 5-Series, powered by a mix between a 3.0 liter engine taken from the 535i and an electric motor, both of them developing a total output of 340 horsepower, mated to an eight-speed transmission.

“The BMW ActiveHybrid 5 also comes with a globally unique intelligent energy management system, which works in tandem with the navigation system to prepare the car’s drive functions in advance for upcoming road conditions”, as the German car manufacturer says in an official statement.

The new generation of four-cylinder petrol engines with TwinPower Turbo technology will also be seen at the Japanese automotive event, along with a six-cylinder diesel with fresh BluePerformance technology which is powering the X5 xDrive35d.

The 2011 edition of the Tokyo Motor Show will start on November, 30 for the press and it will officially open its gates for the general public on December, 3.
