According to BimmerFile, if you're on of the tens of people looking for the Ultimately Confused Driving Machine, you should act fast to pick one up at your local dealership. The 480-horsepower, 575 pound-feet-of-torque-producing mutant X6 Active Hybrid has reached the end of its confused life. The hybrid wagon is certainly powerful, but it's also heavy. In fact, it weighs 400 pounds more than the non-hybrid X6.

Anyone who opted for the BMW X6 Active Hybrid couldn't claim they wanted a more efficient ride. The hybrid version is barely more efficient around town when compared to both the non-hybrid six-cylinder and V8 versions. So could the Active Hybrid owner claim they wanted the extra performance? Nope. The X6 Active Hybrid starts at $89,775, which puts it a hair ahead of the 555-horsepower X6M.

There will be no weeping over the loss of this awkward attempt at sporty efficiency.

      Ahhh... the X6. My last F U to BMW before leaving.

      I was momentarily thrilled when I thought the headline read "BMW X6 cancelled with a quickness" -- alas, it's just the hybrid they canned. Could there be a more ostentatious, heinously pointless vehicle?

        I was thrilled to see it too, but then I read the full title. Acura ZDX's are pretty useless too, but I think his thing still takes the cake.

        No. Maybe a wind powered Hummer.

      Many may dislike this car, but, personally, I really like the X6. It looks different, but I can't find anything about it to dislike.

        Yeah, at the same, all that extra weight for nothing. An M5 wagon makes a lot more sense to me...

          "The only thing that's bad about the X6 is the mileage." Uh, how about the owners?

        The first time I saw one in real life, I thought "oh my god, what is that horrible THING on the road next to me." I rushed home to tell my wife I'd seen the ugliest car since the Aztek. So, you know, opinions differ. :)

      It didn't need to actually get better mileage, the future owners just wanted to have that hybrid badge on the car so they can claim to be green.

        Yes, green as they pull into the vast paved driveway of their 4000+ sq. ft McMansion in a recently denuded forest tract.

      Yep. And time to end the X6 awkward attempt at palatable styling. Yuck!

      I have seen precisely one X6 on the road since it was produced, I have even seen more of the bastardized 5 Series "GT's" than that thing, please just cancel it and do your reputation a favor, nobody ever asked for the AMC Eagle to be reincarnated. The AMC Eagle failed in the late 70's/early 80's, and nobody likes these things....I'm talking to you too Crosstour and ZDX!!

        Where do you live? I see tons of X6s both in LA and in the UK, those are the 2 places I spend the most time. However I've only seen them in black and white.

      Wow, lots of haters on the X6 here! I guess I'm one of those you're all hatin on, with a month old X6 50i. My history is 87 quantum, 90 CBR 600, 92 integra GS-R, 94 Legend coupe, 98 A4, 2004 monster 750, 2007 S2R1000 and finally the 2012 X6. Anyway I gotta say that apart from the city mileage I absolutely love this car, and I have a hard time calling it a truck. I had my eyes on an S5 but ended up with the bigger rig because of the context in and around NYC. Simply put I wanted a machine that could move, could carry some additional, once in a while shopping, possibly a future child or friends, had presence and that I liked the looks of. I have to say the thing that held me back from ever getting a BMW in the past was to be generalized in that driver category. Having motorcycyles one has a pretty good database of what to anticipate from what kind of car. To those judging the design of the X6 I can assure you that I am not in the livery business, am not operating as a "man with a van", do not help friends on their trips to IKEA, it does snow here yet I do not plan on visiting Baja anytime soon, and can appreciate a higher ride to have a little visibility. So why so serious? It fits my needs perfectly and I'm happy with it. There are so many car designs that are safe, by the book, or have already defined poor taste that I wonder why you guys are raggin on it fiercely. Regarding the hybrid, seems pound foolish, penny wise.
