BMW Concept Active Tourer at the PARIS MOTOR SHOW 2012

BMW Concept Active Tourer at the Paris Motor Show 2012
Hey Guys

At the annual Paris Motor Show BMW presented their new "Active Tourer", a Concept Car with a plug-in hybrid that combines Functionality, Dynamic and (Life)Style and gives a first Impression of the future combination of Design and Ecology.

Running in the same segment as the Mercedes-Benz B-Class the Concept has a higher seating position, flexible expandable luggage storage and, especially to mention, iPads as an Infotainment System in the rear.

A 3-cylinder petrol engine produces together with an electric synchronous engine about 140 kW / 190 HP and accelerates from 0 - 100 in 8 seconds. BMW estimates an total fuel consumption of just 2,5 l per 100 km and 60 grams of CO2.

Except the typical kidney grill, is it still a Bimmer? Let's stay tuned for this Concept to turn into a "real Car". . .


  1. Somehow, every automotive-maker is going the same way of designing! -.-

    1. Yeah, unfortunately ... It's just all about a low fuel consumption instead of a real outstanding design :-/

ACTIVE BODY CONTROL (ABC)Subfunction of the suspension system MAGIC BODY CONTROL. The Mercedes-Benz ABC suspension has four suspension struts with hydraulic cylinders to set the force individually in each suspension strut, thus all but completely eliminating the lifting, rolling and pitching motion of the vehicle body. Various acceleration sensors send information about the current driving situation to the control unit which, in turn, compares this information with the data received from the pressure sensors in the suspension struts and the level sensors on the axle links. Based on the results of this comparison, the system calculates control signals which are then converted into precisely measured oil flows by servohydraulic values at the front and rear axle.
