Just barely finished publishing the previous BMW X6 Hybrid spy shots and Larry, one of our readers, hit us back with a new set of photos posted by the “green gurus” at HybridCars.com. Same area – Spartanburg, SC- different car though….in terms of the exterior color and honestly, we dig this one even more.

And yes, we are a bit biased since we’ve been long time X6′s fans, even before it launched and when everyone was bashing it. In our opinion, the Sports Activity Coupe brought something new and fresh to the BMW line-up and we’ve enjoyed every moment we spent with it….okay, minus the rear seats which are kinda small for our 6″2 Managing Editor, Horatiu.

Judging from these new photos, the BMW X6 ActiveHybrid is moving fast through the final evaluation phases and it’s getting ready for a launch in the next few months. Even though we mentioned this yesterday, it’s worth repeating it: the two-mode hybrid system found in the X6 uses about 20 percent less fuel than than the xDrive50i model.

As far as some of the cool stuff that BMW has prepared for us, we will see a nickel metal hydride battery for the initial applications and unlike the other car manufacturers, the BMW hybrid engine will not be using cylinder deactivation.

HybridCars fellows speculate on the pricing, around $70,000, but we can’t confirm it with our sources at this time. As we get closer to the launch date, more information will be either intentionally leaked or we’ll just have to work our magic of getting them.

P.S. Did we mentioned that an X5 Hybrid is rumored to be in works as well?

P.P.S We kinda dig that bonnet on the hood, it just totally fits the muscular front end look.

    Frederico: you really like those wheels? Even knowing the black tape isn’t supposed to be there, they seem like bad versions of the original 6-series wheels… Now that I’ve read so many positive reviews about the X5 diesel, I really can’t decide which concept I like better: Hybrid or diesel. The story about the diesels in the latest BMW Magazine really sold me on the diesel concept, but let’s face it — the X6 hybrid is SWEET!
