BMW Active Tourer Concept Outdoor Adventure Heralds a Future Front-Wheel Drive Minivan
|   Thursday, September 12, 2013
After announcing and presenting its first official concept car with front-wheel drive, Active Tourer Concept last fall, a compact MPV which will soon find a place with other models of the Bavarian carmkaer, today we meet a new derivative of it. It's called the BMW Active Tourer Concept Outdoor and it's a cross version of the original prototype announcing a MPV series for families and adventurers.

The concept will make its market debut at an event which takes place this weekend, in Friedrichshafen, Germany, and takes the basic features of Active Tourer, with the Outdoor particle hiding some interesting aesthetic changes.
Thus the new Bavarian prototype hybrid powertrain borrowed from his brother (the three-cylinder petrol engine of 1.5 liters that spins the front wheels plus electric motor, witha total power 190 hp) is shown again to the public with a spacious interior and offers a versatile high ceiling line. Space for luggage is at an excellent level due to "packing" smart parts of the hybrid propulsion system: the lithium-ion battery is under the floor and the petrol engine is placed transversely at the front.

The Bavarian concept dimensions are similar to those of the Dacia Dokker (4350 mm in length, 1833 mm wide and a wheelbase of 2670 millimeters). The serial version will be built on the new platform UKL, which will be used to build the next generation Mini models and a series of small and compact BMWs.
With a dual propulsion system, the Active Outdoor Tourer promises very rare performance on a minivan: acceleration 0-100 km / h in less than eight seconds and a top speed of over 200 km / h. Accordingly the average consumption is officially announced at 2.5 liters per 100 kilometers and is an outstanding technical success waiting to be validated in real traffic. The hybrid system, complete with a charging cord, allows the Active Tourer Concept to operate on electricity alone for 30 miles (48 kilometers).
