Hybrid Car Information

BMW Hybrid

 

BMW X5 HybridIn late spring of 2004 BMW announced that its newest gasoline-electric project is an X5 SAV hybrid featuring a combustion engine that is power assisted by an electric motor that produces an astonishing 479.35 ft-lbs of low end torque! The hybrid X5 is truly revolutionary because it actually has greatly increased performance over the gasoline only model, while improving gas mileage by 15-20%.

 

BMW has also spent much time and money researching practical hydrogen power, and expects to launch a hybrid 7 series, their flagship super luxury model, by 2010. Though it may seem strange to think that hydrogen power may be only a few years away, consider this: many states have already seen and or approved legislation to allow the beginning phases of hydrogen refill station planning and construction.
