World debut of the BMW 7 Series ActiveHybrid for the first offering the potential of BMW ActiveHybrid in the luxury saloon segment as of the BMW EfficientDynamics innovation strategy. In BMW style, this new Concept Car a significant reduction of fuel and emissions with a standard of dynamics never seen even in this class of cars.

The BMW Concept 7 Series comes with an intelligent of the V8 cylinder petrol engine and drive as a mild hybrid The drivetrain technology featured in the Car allows enhanced driving together with a reduction of consumption and emissions by 15 per cent in the EU cycle versus the same car on a combustion engine only. And at the time the use of BMW ActiveHybrid technology not require any concessions in terms of driving qualities and the specific of the BMW 7 Series.

The Concept Car offers the synthesis of motoring comfort, presence and supremacy of the BMW 7 Series, on the one combined with future-oriented, BMW ActiveHybrid technology, on the other. provides the option to enrich the driving pleasure so typical of the BMW by the additional highlights and fortes of BMW Implementation of such technologies in a performance saloon of this leads to a new perception of hybrid as such: In the configuration developed by BMW technology ensures a significant in efficiency without in any way giving up the standard of driving dynamics, safety and comfort so typical of the

Technical highlights:

The drivetrain of the BMW 7 Series ActiveHybrid is made up of a V8 engine with Twin and High Precision Injection on the power unit of the BMW 750i. output of the conventional engine in the production model is 300 kW/407 hp, peak torque of 600 Newton-metres or 442

Now this superior engine is with an electric motor integrated in the transmission housing, maximum output of 15 kW/20 hp and torque of 210 Newton-metres/155 lb-ft. So the mild hybrid concept, the motor boosts the dynamic potential of the eight-cylinder gasoline in a unique manner most for the character of the BMW 7 Series, giving the car more dynamic acceleration.

Brake Energy Regeneration, the motor supplies electric to the power-consuming items on board the minimising the direct conversion of into electrical energy and the drive power available for driving dynamics.

The V8 power offers ideal features for a focusing on both driving and efficiency all in one. It is the only gasoline engine in the world its turbochargers arranged conveniently in the between the two rows of cylinders, and at the time it is the most efficient in its class.

The hybrid components for the Concept Car are based on technology by BMW and Daimler in their cooperation on drive systems. In this venture the two manufacturers have developed components for hybrid including the power electronics and batteries. Naturally, the hybrid system featured by BMW offers all the and highlights typical of the brand.

BMW is based on a modular concept the “Best of Hybrid“ strategy and in case integrating the best for different vehicle segments. The featured in the BMW Concept 7 Series – the mild hybrid transmission and the petrol engine – supplement other in the same ideal as the full hybrid transmission and the petrol engine in the BMW Concept X6

The compact electric motor in the transmission housing replaces the alternator driven by the engine as as the starter. Electrical energy is through Brake Energy with a unique degree of and without in any way impairing the drive of the engine itself. Integrated electronics, in turn, ensure design within dimensions seen before, as well as and secure arrangement of all hybrid

A high-performance lithium-ion battery in the luggage compartment in accordance the package of the car saves the energy and supplies power to the on-board Through its high storage the battery makes full use of Energy Regeneration with its potential.

Thanks to the higher of electric power provided in way, additional functions in the car are run under the electric power The Auto Start Stop preventing the combustion engine running in the idle mode is helpful and comfort-oriented in this thanks to the combination with technology.

Even More Superior, and Efficient − Hybrid Technology BMW

Maximum efficiency in the luxury supreme dynamics in the hybrid – precisely these are the unique offered and combined with one by the BMW Concept 7 Series ActiveHybrid.

this Concept Car based on the new BMW 7 BMW is clearly demonstrating the potential by the most advanced hybrid available today. The BMW Concept 7 ActiveHybrid comes with components tailored precisely to the of this unique saloon, driving comfort, everyday qualities and driving safety of the standard only the BMW 7 Series is to provide.

In addition, the BMW ActiveHybrid featured in the Concept Car reduces fuel consumption and emissions by 15 per versus the same car with a engine and offers a standard of dynamics clearly exceeding all models with hybrid presented so far.

The BMW Concept 7 ActiveHybrid combines an eight-cylinder engine and an electric motor 15 kW/20 hp and maximum torque of 210 lb-ft as a mild hybrid Electric power is generated by a powerful variant of Brake Regeneration already featured in the BMW regular production cars. The generated in this way is then in a lithium-ion battery fitted in with the package of the car beneath the compartment.

This electrical serves to supply the on-board and, in addition, to boost the engine under clearly driving conditions. The result is a optimisation of engine power and ensuring even more acceleration whenever required.

BMW technology thus supports the BMW development strategy in a particularly manner, offering even driving pleasure on less as well as cleaner emissions.

BMW is an important building brick the BMW EfficientDynamics development strategy as a Pursuing this strategy, the BMW has indeed introduced a wide of efficiency-boosting features in series throughout the entire model thus achieving unique the world over in the reduction of consumption and emissions.

Sales of BMW with EfficientDynamics since the 2007 already exceed a units. Accordingly, this strategy lauded on many through significant prizes and has led to a substantial reduction of average consumption by the BMW car fleet.

Parallel to trendsetting strategy, the BMW Group is hybrid technology along lines for various vehicle The objective of this elaborate process is to create hybrid significantly reducing fuel while maintaining the driving so typical of the brand, in this way up to the great demands made of a BMW in respect.

Pursuing this two models with BMW ActiveHybrid will be reaching production in 2009 alone.

The perfect point: the world’s most luxury performance saloon.

The BMW 7 Series ActiveHybrid is based on the new BMW 7 already ranking right at the top in its in standard trim in terms of The new luxury performance saloon the world’s most successful of premium cars thus out the demanding objectives of the BMW EfficientDynamics strategy in particularly convincing also in this segment.

Compared with their all models in the new BMW 7 Series stand out in both enhanced performance as as a significant reduction of fuel and exhaust emissions. In their performance class, the three available right from the upon the market launch of the new 7 rank right at the top worldwide in of efficiency. In addition, all models in the BMW 7 come as standard with a range of BMW EfficientDynamics technologies Brake Energy Regeneration, control of the engine’s ancillary intelligent lightweight construction, aerodynamics provided by air flap and tyres with reduced resistance.

And last but certainly not all engine variants in the new BMW 7 Series in full with the EU 5 emission

Given these qualities, the new BMW 7 from the start offers an foundation for setting the standard both in the luxury segment and in the market through an optimum of the most advanced BMW ActiveHybrid Another essential feature of the BMW 7 Series ActiveHybrid is that unique model offers a significant increase in efficiency the regular production model in any way giving up the well-known qualities of luxury saloon.

Not to be seen outside, BMW ActiveHybrid technology the driver the significant benefits of a new concept without in any way influencing the comfort, luxurious ambience, and this truly outstanding is able to provide. And when it to everyday driving qualities, the is once again just for full enjoyment and driving in every respect, without the restrictions.

BMW ActiveHybrid technology the intelligent way.

Presenting the BMW 7 Series ActiveHybrid, BMW is introducing a car which, through its harmoniously drive components, will fit into the model range of new luxury performance saloons. The experience and motoring comfort the character of this outstanding line, with new highlights in of both driving dynamics and – as on BMW’s conventional model too. Quite simply, is because hybrid technology stands for superior dynamics with outstanding efficiency a perfect symbiosis with the supremacy of the BMW 7 Series.

All this is possible by combining an eight-cylinder engine for the first time a mild hybrid concept. this approach has been here since the savings offered by hybrid technology with the output and performance of the engine used, and because power units are of particular in the premium segment.

Focusing on smaller cars, BMW has already solutions in the context of EfficientDynamics to significantly reduce fuel and not in any way increasing the cost of ownership for the BMW’s current diesel in this segment, for example, to BMW EfficientDynamics, ensure fuel and emission ratings achieved by manufacturers with their cars only on a far lower of output and performance.

In the medium the development of hybrid systems by the BMW tailored to individual models also lead to solutions in offering significant advantages in fuel economy and driving so typical of BMW. And at the same the larger number of models will help to reduce the cost of hybrid technology.

hybrid and the combustion engine an ideal match in the BMW Concept 7 ActiveHybrid as is already the case in the X6 ActiveHybrid combining a full concept with an eight- petrol engine.

Taking different approaches, BMW is already the broad-scale application of hybrid proving that in this too, model- and concept-specific will pave the way towards efficiency in all segments of performance and vehicles.

Consistent optimisation: BMW and the V8 power unit with Turbo and High Precision

Like all power units in BMW cars, the combustion engine in the BMW Concept 7 Series ActiveHybrid has developed in the context of BMW EfficientDynamics. In the BMW this all-aluminium power offers all the qualities typical of an in incomparably sporting and, at the time, comfortable style, power and traction from low speeds with impressive force throughout a wide of engine revs.

The power and characteristics of the new V8 power unit primarily from BMW’s Twin Turbo technology. unique technology featured for the time on an eight-cylinder gasoline with two turbochargers not fitted at the but rather directly in the V-section of the and supplying four cylinders compressed air in each case, unparalleled spontaneity in responding to the pedal.

High Precision in turn, ensures highly use of fuel, the second generation of gasoline injection introduced by BMW piezo-injectors fitted in the cylinder directly next to the spark and delivering fuel to the combustion at a pressure of 200 bar.

This concept alone the supply and dosage of fuel precise, the V8 power unit Twin Turbo and High Injection achieving the highest of efficiency worldwide in the eight-cylinder

This outstanding efficiency is attributable to the use of BMW EfficientDynamics in and around the with features such as Energy Regeneration, on-demand and control of ancillaries including an a/c operating only when and the use of on-demand pump technology on the suspension control systems.

intelligent energy management comprises the electrifi cation possible of comfort functions on electrical energy generated in by Brake Energy Regeneration.

Use of power generated without fuel in the interest of even efficiency.

Given all these intelligent alternator control the generation of electricity from otherwise wasted in the brake as heat dissipated into the Now, therefore, the fuel in the energy burnt is used to a higher degree for ensuring driving dynamics on the road, to improve the car’s acceleration to an higher level and optimising the of the drive system under all conditions.

The principle of Brake Regeneration is applied in the BMW Concept 7 ActiveHybrid more consistently in any production vehicle so far, the car an unusually high standard of efficiency and fuel economy. In case the conventional alternator is by the electric motor fully in the transmission housing and delivering in overrun and under application of the through the likewise fully power electronics to the lithium-ion

The electric motor integrated in the housing thus ensures far efficiency in the generation of electric than an alternator drawing directly from the combustion and, as a result, reducing its standard of efficiency.

BMW ActiveHybrid is also superior to a conventional through its own, inherent the energy yield produced by the motor through Brake Regeneration alone exceeding the standard roughly ten times.

The energy storage technology of the battery featured in the BMW Concept 7 ActiveHybrid also provides the to store a much greater of electrical energy available free-of-charge, then providing energy on a permanent basis for all of vehicle functions and therefore the performance of conventional battery by far. The progress achieved by BMW in the of energy storage thus electrical operation of ancillary to an extent far beyond the standard so far in a production car.

A further is that the BMW Concept 7 Series uses electrical energy to an higher degree also for functions ranging all the way to extra provided by the electric motor the mild hybrid concept in of the car’s primary drive This is also made by the specific position of the electric in the transmission housing, where it is to offer an additional power

A 120V on-board network to meet further purposes and operating in parallel to the conventional 12V And with its output of 15 kW, the electric supports the combustion engine in dynamic power serving to the car. Since the energy in the process is delivered by Brake Regeneration without any additional of fuel, the mild hybrid gives the car extra dynamics with a significant improvement of

This additional power and of the load acting on the combustion throughout the entire range of speed and running conditions the Concept Car featuring BMW ActiveHybrid to consistently continue the BMW EfficientDynamics strategy raised in this way to an higher level.

A harmonious BMW ActiveHybrid in the BMW 7 Series.

The harmonious concept of the BMW Concept 7 Series is just as impressive as the progressive of the car and its efficiency in reducing both consumption and emissions. All components are matched to one another, coming to form one fascinating, trend whole.

The car itself offers all the of a modern luxury saloon, standards through the space and the exclusive ambiance within the as well as with its drivetrain and technology allowing an outstanding of dynamic performance and supreme comfort.

BMW ActiveHybrid technology conceived for the saloon serves to the driving experience in genuine typical of a BMW 7 Series and at the same achieves a new level of all-round Hence, the Concept Car offers and options raising the very balance of performance and fuel already offered on the series-production BMW to a significantly higher standard.

The of the hybrid components likewise to enhance the degree of efficiency and the driving experience even Positioned appropriately within dimensions in the transmission housing, the motor optimises both the of electricity and the drive power by the combustion engine. Housed in the of the car, in turn, the lithium-ion offer an ideal solution in of both everyday driving the balance of the overall vehicle, and

Ultra-modern energy storage lithium-ion battery with capacity and stable cycles.

a lithium-ion battery, BMW is taking yet step into the future in the intense and flexible use of electric in the car. As a rule, the energy by Brake Energy Regeneration be fed to a storage unit at all times and be available – depending on driving – in different cycles, whenever In addition, storage capacity be sufficiently great for the car to cover distances without application of the or running in overrun, while at the time the supply of electric must not be interrupted.

This is why BMW AGM (Absorbent Glass Mat) on regular production cars Brake Energy Regeneration, is cars running in frequent and charge and discharge cycles losing energy in the process. To the requirements of a mild hybrid on the other hand, a car needs a energy storage unit significantly higher output and The system developed for the BMW Concept 7 ActiveHybrid therefore uses the advanced lithium-ion technology the greatest demands in terms of capacity and lasting performance.

The battery has proven its particularly storage capacity and resistance to and discharge cycles for a long in many other areas, for in the mobile phone and in laptops. The storage unit featured in the BMW 7 Series ActiveHybrid therefore up a new perspective in the use of this technology the particularly demanding conditions in a motor vehicle.
