BMW's ActiveHybrid 7 is the hybrid version of its 7 Series sedan, introduced in 2011 in response to consumer demand for more eco-friendly models. Those who can afford the ActiveHybrid 7 will likely appreciate its luxurious cabin, excellent handling, and comfortable ride. However, these qualities can also be found in the less-expensive conventional 7 Series, which gets mileage that is close to the hybrid's.
It is powered by a 3-liter six-cylinder turbo gas/electric hybrid and gets excellent gas mileage for its class. As expected with a BMW, standard and optional features abound. The body is streamlined and sophisticated, and special design touches and cabin features give the ActiveHybrid 7 a sporty feel.
