BMW has announced the Concept Active Tourer Outdoor which will make its debut at the OutDoor Friedrichshafen fair in Germany this weekend. It is similar in size and uses the same 1.5-liter three-cylinder plug-in hybrid powerplant as in the Concept Active Tourer which made its appearance at the Paris Motor Show.
The Concept Active Tourer Outdoor showcases how a compact vehicle can combine comfort and the use of space with the enjoyment of sports and leisure.
The BMW Concept Active Tourer Outdoor is designed as a plug-in hybrid (PHEV = Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicle) making use of the highly sophisticated 1.5-litre BMW TwinPower Turbo petrol unit which works in perfect tandem with a synchronous electric motor and and a lithium-ion high-performance battery. With a total system output of over 140 kW/190 hp, it has an average fuel consumption of only 2.5 liters / 100 km (94 mpg US or 113 mpg UK) and CO2 emissions of less than 60 g/km.
The BMW Concept Active Tourer Outdoor darts to 100 km/h (62 mph) from stationary in under eight seconds, going on to a top speed of around 200 km/h (125 mph). It can be driven solely on electric power for 20-30 km (12-19 miles).
The BMW Concept Active Tourer Outdoor comes with exclusive Gold Race Orange exterior paintwork and rides on 20-inch wheels partly painted in Gold Race Orange. It has a carrier system for two bicycles which is integrated into the interior to save space.
The interior comes with easy-care, hard-wearing interior materials, such as MoonWhite and MoonRock Grey leather which stand up well to contact with outdoor equipment.
