Electric power captured no extra fuel.

BMW ActiveHybrid uses energy that be normally converted into through the brakes, and therefore in conventional cars. The BMW ActiveHybrid 7 an enhanced version of Brake Regeneration already used in current BMW models running on a engine alone. In this the integrated electric motor as a generator when coasting or the brakes feeding electric into the battery. Brake Regeneration converts some of the kinetic energy into power for the on-board network the driver lifts off the accelerator or the brakes. On acceleration, electricity is fed into the on-board network the lithium-ion battery.

This relieves the combustion engine the task of converting some of its energy into electric and thus enables the engine to more power directly to the wheels. The result is better than even the 750i, the fact that the additional is obtained in a way that does not additional consumption of fuel.

the driver requires only a amount of brake force, the uses only the drag of the generator (motor). The mechanical are activated only when the presses down the brake harder for more stopping Dynamic Stability Control the balance of electrical and mechanical so adeptly that the driver not even perceive the transition braking with electric to braking with the mechanical system.
