Bmw planning more hybrid models

In a recent interview with Autocar, at the launch of the new Bmw X6 ActiveHybrid, Peter Tuennermann, the model’s project leader, revealed the fact that the Bavarian manufacturer is currently working on more hybrid models. It appears that volume models such as the 3-, 5- and 7-series will are more suited towards a mild hybrid set-up on the basis of their packaging.

Also, larger models like X3, X5 and X6 will also receive a full hybrid solution. According to Tuennermann, the 3rd hybrid model, besides the ActiveHybrid X6 and ActiveHybrid 7, will be launched within the next 12 months! Possibly a hybrid version of the new 5-Series Sedan!
