BMW Active E – Click above to watch video after the jump

BMW's latest video details the start of production of the battery-powered Active E – the zero-emissions vehicle that, just a few short years ago, seemed no more than a dream to Mirco Schwarze, team leader at BMW's facility in Leipzig, Germany. Going from dream to reality in three years, the Active E is BMW's answer to the question, "what's next?"

Official lease pricing for the 1 Series Active E is $499 a month for 24 months, with $2,250 due at signing. BMW isn't citing exact output figures for the Active E, but it is quoting a 0 to 60 miles per hour time of a few ticks under nine seconds and an estimated range of 100 miles with its liquid-cooled lithium-ion battery pack.

Reservations for the Active E kick off this summer. Looking to get in on the electric Bimmer action? Click here then hit the jump to go inside Leipzig and see production of the Active E get underway.
