It looks like the next hybrid model coming to BMW dealers will be the just-introduced 5 series sedan. Photos have leaked out showing an ActiveHybrid 5 concept that is expected to debut next week in Geneva. Like the already-available ActiveHybrid 7, the 5 will likely use the mild hybrid system, but it appears that the 5 will get a more powerful motor. The 7 has a 15 kilowatt motor that doesn't allow electric-only drive. The hybrid 5 will probably have a 40 kW motor that would yield substantially better fuel efficiency in combination with an inline-six cylinder engine. The ActiveHybrid 5 should hit the streets in 2011.

        at some point, guido, you might want to realize that there is evil in this world and just because you want BMW to be good doesn't make it so.

        if you don't want to deal with the substantial problems of this reality then could you at least do that in silence so as to not make it even harder for those of us who actually apply our minds
