Americans apparently aren’t too concerned in saving the trees and the baby Panda tears coming out of the exhaust in the X6 ActiveHybrid and after almost two years since the SUV was introduced to the other side of the Atlantic, the German automaker decided to withdrawn it from sale.
Rumors are that the Americans preferred the beefed up X6 M which is just 600 USD more than the X6 ActiveHybrid, affecting its sales pretty badly while the price didn’t help either: $88.900.
The four-wheel drive X6 ActiveHybrid is powered by a TwinPower turbocharged V8 and two high-performance electric motors that get their extra power from a brake-regeneration system and deliver a total output of 400 HP and 575 lb-ft of torque.
BMW claimed that the X6 ActiveHybrid was the most powerful hybrid in the world when it was launched, being able to accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in 5.4 seconds even if the extra “technology” added 250 kilograms to the kerb weight to a total of 2.450 kg, resulting in a power-to-weight ratio of 198 BHP per ton.
The German automaker didn’t announce an exact date for when the X6 ActiveHybrid will be withdrawn from the over-seas auto market.
