Indeed, implementing strategy with full BMW is able to offer cars in all through the current model ranking right at the top against the in terms of both performance and

BMW ActiveHybrid is a firm part of the BMW development strategy. Introducing technology, BMW is taking the next in consis-tently reducing both consumption and emissions. BMW ActiveHybrid is on a modular principle following the of Best of Hybrid to integrate the components in each case in vehicle concepts.

And pursuing strategy, BMW, with its full-hybrid car, is now taking the step towards lasting and mobility based on Sheer Pleasure.

BMW Concept X6 ActiveHybrid is the of the consistent development of attractive concepts and drivetrain technologies. the Sports Activity Vehicle BMW has already revolutionised the market by a complete, brand-new segment previously there was only the utility vehicle (SUV). And their supreme agility and dynamics, both the BMW X5 and the BMW X3 have now a dominating position in this

Now the concept of a Sports Activity shows how the range of BMW X models so the world over might be by another exclusive variant, at the same time presenting a possibility of experiencing the sporting so typical of the brand in completely new

A further highlight is BMW’s competence in the area of drivetrain setting the basis for combining an driving experience with efficiency. Once again, BMW is becoming the trendsetter in a market which shows particularly growth.

A hybrid car with typical BMW character requires technology.

The objective to combine Sheer Driving Pleasure so of BMW with a significant reduction of consumption and emissions in BMW’s full hybrid, called for the of innovative technology offering a of the combustion engine and the electric

To make this process of as efficient as possible, the BMW Group has forces with General and DaimlerChrysler to form the Global Cooperation serving to develop the generation of hybrid drive These three equal pool their know-how and in the GM, DaimlerChrysler and BMW Hybrid Development in Troy (Michigan, USA, in the process on a flexible system allowing each of the companies to integrate the particular concept, and construction of their cars in the new focusing on the specific features of brand. Precisely this is why the of the two-mode active transmission through this cooperation is the BMW ActiveHybrid modular development

Optimised use of energy and superior in every situation.

The innovative transmission featured by BMW Concept X6 combines two compact, high-performance motors with a transmission fixed transmission ratios. drive systems are connected to one by three planetary gearsets a power split covering the forces of the combustion engine and the motors in two transmission ranges and ensuring a level of variability impossible on a conventional hybrid thanks to the combination of the two drive able to provide optimum and maximum efficiency under all conditions and power requirements the driver.

The system referred to on of its two operating modes as the two-mode transmission also comprises a battery, power electronics an integrated inverter module, and the required.

The two-mode active is based on an ECVT electrical variable transmission. The two operating one of which has been optimised for the other for high speeds, are by fixed transmission ratios.

The two ECVT sections allow the to run at continu-ously variable speeds and full, highly efficient functions throughout the complete range of the car, the innovative in BMW Concept X6 ActiveHybrid thus to reduce fuel consumption by up to 20 per compared with a comparable BMW on a combustion engine alone.

the two-mode system, the electric are furthermore very compact in dimensions, facilitating integration the overall vehicle as well as a increase in weight, which is in the case of BMW Concept X6 ActiveHybrid with conventional hybrid offering comparable power.

BMW X6 ActiveHybrid can be driven on electric only, on the combustion engine or with a combination of both units. Depending on driving the electric motors may also be for both accelerating and regenerative of the brakes, in which case the forces generated when and when applying the brakes to the high-volt energy storage to provide an increase in electric

This energy subsequently for further use need not be generated by the engine and is therefore available free of charge.

Already this principle in a similar on production cars featuring Energy Regeneration, BMW is able to efficient energy management and the battery at a high charge On the road, the support provided by the motors in this way referred to as serves, first, to give the car spontaneity and a direct response second, to significantly reduce consumption.

BMW ActiveHybrid comes in where hybrid drive reaches its

Conventional hybrid systems efficient motoring only in small or medium-sized vehicles at low speeds. This is because of the power coming from the engine has to be conveyed most of the via the electrical path of the transmission and of the use of a high level of electric A car with enhanced dynamics, and running speeds would require a larger combustion calling for less efficient, and heavier electric motors.

In the split drive mode, referred to as the output branched one of the two electric motors acts as a converting some of the engine’s into electrical current fed to the battery or the second electric The second electric motor converts such power from the first electric or from the battery back mechanical power for the output shaft on the transmission.

Two-mode varies the balance of electrical and energy on the respective paths for efficiency. A further point is a conventional hybrid drive does not come with mechanical transmission ratios, would serve to optimise consumption.

Instead, conventional drivetrains use a continuously variable with the disadvantage that the requirement for performance and load from the car are separated from one thus failing to provide a driving impression. The two-mode transmission, by contrast, overcomes and the disadvantages of a conventional hybrid

It reduces the share of power through the electrical branch of the throughout a broad range of ratios. Through its power in two transmission ranges, the two-mode transmission therefore provides the of both electric motors in an form tailored to current conditions.

BMW ActiveHybrid: the result of of research.

The principle of the two-mode transmission in BMW Concept X6 ActiveHybrid a significant milestone in BMW’s strategy, fulfilling the demands by a broad range of customers for a dynamic, economical and responsible of motoring.

To reach this BMW pursues a clear-cut Best of strategy enabling use of the optimum under a modular principle a wide range of different concepts planned for the future. to the Global Hybrid Cooperation, the BMW has therefore entered into yet joint venture with developing components for hybrid in the luxury performance saloon.

BMW to develop hybrid drive years ago, long the foundation of the Global Hybrid Indeed, BMW tested the electric as early as in the late 1980s, for in the BMW E1. And the BMW Group has been conducting on hybrid technology and its various for more than 15 years, this technology and the results obtained a firm part of the BMW X5 development strategy.

In the meantime the BMW has presented several hybrid concepts, starting with a car in 1995 based on the BMW 518i. In the outstanding potential of this technology has been proven in the BMW X5 presented in 2003 and the BMW Concept X3 shown to the world in 2005.
