BMW rolls into Frankfurt

Car manufacturer BMW has lifted the lid on a new vehicle at the Frankfurt International Motor Show this week.

Fitted with Dynamic Performance Control, the car is the company’s first Sports Activity Coupe and features dual round headlights.

The vehicle also employs ActiveHybrid technology – “the world’s most advanced”, according to the company.

For more than 15 years the firm has been researching and developing this system, stating that it has been an “integral part” of its EfficientDynamics operation.

“The BMW ActiveHybrid combines two compact, high-performance electric motors connected to one another by three planetary gear sets, a fixed-transmission ratio gearbox and a high-performance battery to deliver benefits over low and high speed range,” said the company.

Earlier this week, BMW chief executive Norbert Reithofer stated that the firm was not looking to buy Volvo as “this would not produce synergies”, Forbes reported.
