First hybrid powered BMW will be a series 5, "active hybrid" model, with twinpower petrol V6 engine, electroengine and 8 gear automatic transmission. It is capable of delivering total of 340bhp, resulting in 5,9s to reach 60mph.

Average consumption is 36,75-33,6mpg , but it can run on electrical power, if speed is no greater than 40mph.

New X6 is announced for mid next year. Exterior changes are subtle, limited to a slightly different front lights, which are more series 1 alike, with LED lights. Other than for front lights, more chrome details will be added to its body.

Bigger change is a new engine - 3l diesel engine with three turbochargers and over 400bhp. Such huge power will put that version close to existing M models.

A new brand is titled simply BMW i. Luckilly, name is the only dull thing about it - everything else is sparkling with new ideas and concepts. Two models are presented - city car i3 and sports car i8.
