BMW ActiveHybrid 3.

From £40,685

The BMW ActiveHybrid 3 is the world’s first BMW full hybrid compact executive saloon. The optimum interplay between the combustion engine and electric motor means energy is only used when necessary which guarantees efficiency. However, with near perfect weight distribution and superb steering, drivers will also enjoy an exhilarating experience. The BMW ActiveHybrid 3 is available as SE, Luxury or M Sport model.

The BMW ActiveHybrid 3 stands for innovation and efficiency and is the first full hybrid among the compact sports saloons in the premium segment. It is also available as SE, Sport, Luxury or M Sport model.

Inspired by the rich model history of the BMW 3 Series, the BMW ActiveHybrid 3 has a powerful presence. The striking BMW kidney grille forms one unit and for the first time exploits its full effect from the side. When combined with the headlights the sporting character of this stunning car is even more accentuated.  

Flowing contours together with the powerful front that sweepingly leads into the bonnet creates a dynamic experience. So too does the three-box design with long bonnet, short front overhangs, rear-set greenhouse and the flowing transition from curved roof line to shallow-sloping rear window.

Model logos on the tail and C-pillars in the interior and on the engine cover distinguish the vehicle visually from the BMW 3 Series. Optional 18-inch aerodynamic rims and the Liquid Blue paint finish complete the look of this innovative car.

Interior design.

Interior design.

The interior of the BMW ActiveHybrid 3 Modern model is as impressive as the exterior. High-quality materials create a cockpit feeling and drivers will enjoy optimum access to hybrid-specific gauges on the instrument panel and Control Display as well as important control functions.

On the deliberately asymmetrically designed centre console, a change of decorative surface and grain visually highlights the driver’s section. The free-standing iDrive monitor with its high-resolution display is positioned on the instrument panel and is reminiscent of ultra modern flatscreens.

The light colour of the instrument panel and steering wheel are particularly eye-catching and, to highlight the innovative drive concept, the model logo “ActiveHybrid 3” appears on the entry sill and the trim around the gear selection lever. Customers can choose from exclusive leather upholstery or fabric/leather combinations in Oyster or Black. Then, as an option, there are three decorative surfaces with Satin Chrome accent trim strips to create a world of colours.

Functional boot concept.

Functional boot concept.

As the BMW ActiveHybrid 3 was devised from the outset with hybrid technology, our engineers could devise intelligent design solutions to create the maximum space and flexibility. The lithium-ion high-performance battery has been integrated beneath the floor of the luggage compartment. Compared with the BMW ActiveHybrid 3 using a conventional drive system, the rear section of the boot floor has only been raised by a few centimetres so drivers enjoy an almost unaltered, directly accessible space.

The boot also retains its full versatility. Thanks to the optionally available foldable rear seat backrest featuring a 40:20:40 split with through-loading system, you can extend the boot and create space to transport large items in no time at all. This means you can easily stow any holiday luggage – such as a ski bag – while enjoying the same full seating comfort as in the BMW 3 Series with a conventional drive system.
