Luxury Hybrid Cars - 03 - 2013 BMW ActiveHybrid 7
The 2013 BMW ActiveHybrid 7 is another battery-assisted luxury hybrid car that sacrifices efficiency for increased grunt when the go-pedal is pushed to the floor. The BMW ActiveHybrid 7 crests the $100,000 mark in terms of asking price, but it also delivers a better-than-average driving experience for a full-size premium sedan. A big part of this has to do with the turbocharged 4.4-liter, eight-cylinder gas engine under its hood, a unit which works together with an electric motor to deliver 455 horsepower and 515 lb-ft of torque. The rear-wheel drive BMW is shifted via an eight-speed automatic transmission, and fuel mileage for the ActiveHybrid 7 checks in at 17-mpg city and 24-mpg highway.
