BMW does finally say goodbye to all the weird hybrid models? The fact is in any case that the first full hybrid of the German mark after only two years out of production is already taken. Apparently, a big SUV with a V8 hybrid and outdated technology is not something the world had been waiting for.

You knew it or not, but the hybrid technique where the Active Hybrid X6 use of it was originally a project that was launched by General Motors & DaimlerChryser in 2004 and until 2005 BMW decided to also to join the Global Hybrid Cooperation.  This cooperation was not a success and in 2009, it was decided to increase cooperation to stop, but cars like the Cadillac Escalade Hybrid,  Mercedes ML 450 hybrid and BMW ActiveHybrid X6 had by now with the jointly developed two-mode hybrid system.


BMW was soon discovered that the combination of a big V8 with a hybrid system that not many fuel savings are not many benefits. A big diesel is a much better option then, for example. If we combine that with the high price for the X6 ActiveHybrid is soon clear that it is not very attractive car.

Moreover, after the disappearance of the BMW X6 ActiveHybrid still another hybrid in the price list. Because they still have the BMW ActiveHybrid 7 at the price list. This is not a full hybrid like the X6, but a mild hybrid. The hybrid technology of the BMW car shares with the Mercedes S400 Hybrid.

The following hybrid that BMW will market a hybrid version of the new 5 Series.  And of course, the new 3 series are also hybrid come. And the X5 ActiveHybrid we last wrote about? Which will enable us to forget.
