An ingenious cooling system selects the right cooling strategy for every climate and driving situation, ensuring the greatest efficiency with reliable storage and energy supply as fast as lighting. The integrated control unit constantly calculates current charge and the available power – the stored driving pleasure, which can be called upon for purely electric driving, or to actively support the BMW TwinPower Turbo.

Electric driving

The BMW ActiveHybrid X6 drives on electricity: up to 2.5 km at a speed of 60 km/h, with short-tem peaks of up to 65 km/h also possible.

The hybrid management system manages the interplay between the internal combustion engine and the electric motors, ensuring your drive is virtually silent and, most importantly, completely emission-free – without compromising performance. The joy of driving doesn’t get better than this.

The motors

Electric motors make the high-efficiency drivetrain with BMW TwinPower Turbo and high-precision injection even more economical – and more powerful.

All the solutions and systems operate in the background, so you can savour the full joy of driving. And for those who want to understand it exactly, the hybrid aggregates` activity has been subtly integrated into the advertising and operating concept.

Brake Energy Regeneration

Each time the brakes are applied, the BMW ActiveHybrid X6 converts kinetic energy into electric energy.
