About BMW Active Hybrid 7

The Activehybrid 7 was the first BMW vehicle to use a hybrid drivetrain. The concept was unveiled as the Concept 7 Series ActiveHybrid at the 2008 Paris Motor Show and the 2008 Los Angeles International Auto Show. The production version was unveiled at the 2009 Frankfurt Auto Show,and shown again later at the Monaco Yacht Show 2010.

The production version called the ActiveHybrid 7 uses the engine from the 750i plus an electric motor rated at 15 kW (20 hp) and 210 N⋅m (155 lb⋅ft) of torque. The electric motor is integrated into the transmission housing, replacing the alternator and the starter. The battery is a lithium-ion type and located under the boot floor. Other features include an auto start/stop system. and an 8-speed automatic transmission. The hybrid system was based on the 2-mode hybrid from Daimler AG. The regenerative braking unit includes 12 V Absorbent Glass Mat batteries, running in parallel to a 120 V electrical network for electric motor. BMW claims it improved fuel consumption and reduced emissions by 15% over the non-hybrid model.

The wheelbase of the ActiveHybrid 7 is extended by 14 cm (5.5 in) and the car weighs 100 kg (221 lb) more than a regular 750i. The car’s exterior profile was designed by Karim Habib, Team Leader, Advanced Design for BMW in Munich, Germany.

The fuel economy benefits of the ActiveHybrid 7 were questioned by reviewers, since the EPA consumption ratings of 17 mpg‑US (13.8 L/100 km) city and 26 mpg‑US (9.0 L/100 km) are not significantly better than the significantly cheaper 740i model’s ratings of 17 mpg‑US (13.8 L/100 km) city and 25 mpg‑US (9.4 L/100 km) highway.The contemporary 740i was powered by a conventional petrol engine (the turbocharged N54 six-cylinder). The 740i has 108 kg (239 lb) less weight than the 750i over the front axle.

In late 2012, the ActiveHybrid 7’s powertrain was significantly changed, switching from the 750i’s turbocharged 4.4 litre V8 engine to the turbocharged 3.0 litre six-cylinder engine from the 740i. The electric motor was upgraded to 41 kW (55 hp). The 2012–2015 ActiveHybrid 7 was only available as a long-wheelbase model. Fuel economy was significantly improved for the updated drivetrain, which was rated at 22 mpg‑US (10.7 L/100 km) city and 30 mpg‑US (7.8 L/100 km) highway. (Source Wiki)
