 This morning BMWNA officially revealed the pricing of the latest hybrid model, the BMW ActiveHybrid 5. Coming in at just under $62k it will arrive at dealers this Spring.

Official Release: Detroit, MI – 9:00am EST January 9, 2012… On the occasion of the North American International Auto Show, BMW today announced the retail pricing of the new 2012 BMW ActiveHybrid 5.

The M.S.R.P. will be $61,845 (including the $895 Destination and Handling charge).

Based on the BMW 535i Sedan, the ActiveHybrid 5 brings together BMW’s 3.0-liter TwinPower Turbo inline 6-cylinder engine, an electric drive system and an 8-speed automatic transmission for the first time for a combined output of 335hp. The latest generation of BMW ActiveHybrid technology also adds precisely controlled energy management to the mix. All of which gives the BMW ActiveHybrid 5 an exceptional balance of performance and fuel economy for a benchmark performance/luxury sedan.

The BMW ActiveHybrid 5 can operate in all-electric mode up to a speed of 37 mph (60 km/h), for zero emissions in town. The lithium-ion high-voltage battery can store sufficient energy to give an all-electric driving range of up to approximately 2.5 miles (4 km) at an average speed of 22 mph (35 km/h).Conversely, the powertrain system can combine the engine and electric motor torque to accelerate the BMW ActiveHybrid 5 from 0 to 60 mph in 5.7 seconds. The 2012 BMW ActiveHybrid 5 is scheduled to arrive in US BMW Centers in late Spring 2012.

    Well, I would have preferred that BMW bring the 535d to the U.S.  But I think they got the pricing right on the hybrid — in between the 535i and the 550i.  With the added horsepower and torque, plus more fuel efficiency, this will probably be the repacement for my current 5er.

    I’ve spent a decent amount of time in a 7-Series hybrid, and came away firmly believing it was the best version of the current 7er.  It really does do what Lexus originally said the LS600h would do but didn’t — offer V12 performance with six cylinder fuel economy.  Based on that experience I’m looking forward to the 5-Series hybrid with its much more advanced and thoroughly integrated hybrid system.  Based on the already stellar economy of the regular 535 the hybrid should really put down some impressive figures.
