2014 will be a year to look forward to for BMW. They have a line of stunning releases for the year and one of the most notable one is the BMW 2014 Active Hybrid 5. BMW will be aiming for the hybrid market with this car. They have used many features which have struck a chord with the people already in cars like 535i. That, along with the fuel economy and the power of the engine is sure to push this car to the forefront when it hits the market.

As mentioned earlier, features have been inherited from the 535i. The engine for example has been reused in this model. It is a six cylinder engine used in conjunction with an electric motor. It is capable of generating up to 335 horsepower with an average fuel consumption of 23 gallons per mile in city conditions and 30 gallons per mile on a highway. One has the option to go an additional 37 miles while using the motor. The engine is connected to an eight speed automatic transmission gearbox. It is capable of accelerating from 0 to 62 mph in a mere 5.7 seconds. This model does not come with an all wheel drive that is supposed to affect its road grip. However noticeable differences were not observed. As far as the design of the car is concerned, the contours along its body has become more emphasizing. The other design elements typical of a BMW car have been retained.

In the interior too, not many changes have been observed over the predecessors. An additional chrome trim lining adds to the elegance of the car. The car will enter the hybrid luxury sedan segment on its release and is expected to turn a few heads with the 300 horse power rating that it comes with.
