BMW releases the pricing for the new Active Hybrid X6. The first BMW hybrid available for the consumers is priced at 102,900 euros in German market, around $147,000 at the current conversion rates. For Europe, the X6 ActiveHybrid will launch in April 2010.

The X6 Hybrid is powered by an unique two-mode system, a combination of a V8 petrol engine and an electric drive. The base V8 twin-turbo engine produces 407 horsepower and the two electric motors output 91 hp and 86 hp, respectively, with peak torque values of 192 lb-ft and 206 lb-ft. Top speed in the electric mode is 37 mph, maximum range is 1.6 miles.

The maximum power available for the X6 Hybrid is rated at 480 horsepower and 575 lb-ft of torque. The X6 Hybrid uses a 7-Speed automatic transmission and several EfficientDynamics technologies.

ActiveHybrid X6 runs from 0 to 60 mph in only 5.4 seconds and has a 20% efficiency increase over a comparable vehicle powered by a combustion engine alone.

The “fasted hybrid in the world” as many publications have named it, the X6 Hybrid, also comes with a premium price.. The top model xDrive50i sells in Germany for 76,100 euros, nearly 30,000 euros less than the hybrid model.

We expect the U.S. pricing to be lower, but could this price be a deal breaker in the European market?

    Can you say expensive??

  • Lance

    Good luck with the sales. This is one terrible price that my fuel savings will not match. This is definitely for those who care so much about the environment that economic reality becomes an irrational consideration. We doubt we have many around, and the few that we might have will be constrained by the current economic meltdown.

    When did BMW develop a 7-Speed automatic transmission ?

    30k€ for a 20% fuel saving? LOL you’ll need 40 years to gain the money back :D Useless

    Guys, don’t think about X6 Hybrid in terms of savings on fuel consumption. It’s not the point of these cars, they are dedicated to eco-friendly and wealthy people who primary don’t care about money and who are scared by features of M brand products. If you are searching for economics, you won’t buy 7-serie hybrid, but 740d, which will be cheaper and have lower fuel consumption. Current economic meltdown will end some day and having such cars as Hybrids in offer will be great thing from development of BMW group point of view. Lexus’ example showed that Hybrids with big pethrol engines are selling, despite lack of connections between ecological ideology and their features – 20% savings from pretty high fuel consumption is not what ecology should consist on. If ecology was the only point of Hybrids, they would base on smaller diesels such as in 730d, 740d, X6 35d or poor performance engines such as 1.6 or 1.8 litre.
