BMW 2 Series Active Tourer eDrive

BMW have been coming up with some fantastic hybrids and EV’s as of late and the new BMW 2 Series Active Tourer eDrive is set to be another success.

Making waves with their phenomenal i8 supercar and the i3 EV, it seems BMW are keen to take another chunk of the clean green market share with another bit of innovative genius. The 2 Series Active Tourer eDrive actually uses the same electric/petrol set up as the i8 and using its tri-cylinder, 1.5 Litre petrol engine alongside a 65KW electric motor, it manages to make 0-62MPH in 6.5 seconds!

In total, the BMW delivers 220BHP due to the fact that when both engines are running in eBoost mode, power is given to all four wheels which help tremendously with its grip on the road.

It can also cleverly recharge its batteries using regenerative braking and economic driving techniques and according to BMW, you should get 24-miles from electric alone as long as you don’t exceed 70MPH. Seems fair!

All indications point to this 2 series being released in the middle of 2016 which means drivers will still be able to take advantage of the current VED system before it changes and will pay zero road tax if they buy the eDrive. There is also the £5000 government grant to supplement the purchasing power of those interested.

 

Charging & Range

There are three different eDrive set ups for you to make use of and the first one is Auto eDrive. This will likely be your most used setting as it uses both engines equally and distributes power wherever needed. Then there is Max eDrive which is simply all electric mode and then there is “Save” mode which forces the car to make every effort to maintain or recover the battery charge to at least 50 per cent.

The battery that powers the 2 Series eDrive is a 5.8KWh lithium-ion bettery that will take around 3 hours to fully charge and will allow you to travel around a combined 344 miles before you need to pit stop.

Prices are expected to be around £30,000. Could this be your next BMW?
