the holy grail for motorists a green conscience – a high-performance hybrid car. Well, is what BMW will have us when it unveils its latest at the Frankfurt motor show in next week.

The show is to see a stream of new hybrids, cars combine a combustion engine an electric motor for improved efficiency. And pole position is to be taken by BMW’s ActiveHybrid X6, it styles the world’s most hybrid.

The new X6 goes from 0-60 mph in six seconds and has a top speed of 130 mph .

But the company equal prominence to its pitch the new hybrid is eco-friendly, because its emissions are 20% less than of a regular X6 .

For a few days last you could read the same on the website of the Energy Saving the impartial adviser on energy set up by the British government.

But is it too good to be Of course. As one incredulous reader who the story on the Trust’s website out: The Trust is promoting a car as with emissions TWICE of my 6 year old Honda Civic

The ActiveHybrid X6’s official CO2 rating with the European is 231 grams per kilometre. That badly with the EU’s target for average emissions new cars of 120 grams. It is also than the emissions from of the new Lexus hybrid range and than twice the emissions of a Prius. for instance.

The fact it is better than the regular rating of 299 grams per kilometre not make it eco-friendly, I am afraid. The is greenwash.

I suspect we are going to see a rash of high-performance high-emission hybrids as green. Back in the lab, BMW is a hybrid supercar that reach 155 mph and 0-60 mph in less five seconds.

Sure, are more fuel-efficient than the old models. The key is that the fuel not have to be burned in inefficient as the car accelerates and brakes. It can be burned in a smooth flow, and the energy to a battery that supplies the motor that drives the car

The battery can also make use of generated during braking.

But to these high-performance models or low-emissions as they burn up the is nonsense. They are, in slightly less polluting

The Energy Saving Trust to take a similar view. my correspondent pointed out the dodgy of the car’s green credentials, the story swiftly disappeared its site. Once we noticed it, we it straight away, a spokesman me.

The rise of these new hybrids has implications for green-minded legislators. For it should increase the pressure on mayor to reconsider his blanket from congestion charges for cars. Surely, only low-emitters should qualify.

Interestingly, the BMW PR promotes the idea the driver of the hybrid X6 can experience without coming to a stop , the electric motor is running

It sounds fun. But speaking as a I’m a bit scared at the idea of a car can go from 0 to 60mph in less six seconds without making any Green or not, it sounds a stealth killer .
