Hybrid for 5 here next month
BMW’S Activehybrid5 is here next month.
The 5-series saloon combines a 302bhp twin turbo 3-litre petrol engine with a 54 horse power electric motor, which combine to produce 335bhp and 332lb-ft.
It can travel up to 24 miles on electric power and has a system which reads the road ahead and stores energy in the battery to give the car an extra boost up a hill.
Data: 44mpg, 149g/km CO2, £46,860.
