Paris Motor Show LIVE: BMW Active Tourer Concept

BMW has unveiled the Active Tourer Concept at the 2012 Paris Motor Show, which will hit the production line as a direct rival for the Mercedes-Benz B-Class.

The newest model signed by BMW is named the Active Tourer Concept and the vehicle is coming as a plug-in hybrid, promising to hit the production line and eventually battle with the Mercedes-Benz B-Class. According to the car manufacturer, the BMW Active Tourer Concept is 4,353 mm long, 1,834 mm wide and 1,560 mm tall and its wheelbase is 2,670 mm long. The model is finished in a High Reflection Silver paint and its interior space is amplified by a panoramic roof with Suspended Particle Device, which is allowing the driver to control how much light can go in by pushing a button.

The BMW Active Tourer Concept is basically a plug-in hybrid and it’s powered by a 1.5 liter three-cylinder TwinPower Turbo engine and by an electric motor, assisted by a battery set, which can be charged from a standard 220V outlet. The total output developed is over 190 HP which are being sent to the front-wheel drive, allowing the model to accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in less than 8 seconds before reaching a top speed of over 200 km/h. The average fuel consumption stands at 2.5 liters every 100 km and the CO2 emissions stop at 60 g/km.
