However, under the hood of the upcoming ActiveE we’ll find an electric engine that develops 170 horsepower and 250 Nm of torque, enough resources to provide a sprint from 0 to 100 km/h in around 9 seconds and a top speed of 145 km/h.

The 32 kWh lithium-ion battery pack which fits the new electric model will offer a driving range of 160 kilometers, just five hours being necessary to completely charge the battery. The aesthetics couldn’t be ignored by the Bavarians, thus, the model gets inside some nice features such as Alpine White trim, the new eDrive system and Dakota leather upholstery.

Outside, a special design with few graphics tell you that you are in front of an electric model, a set of 16-inch alloy wheels completing the exterior appearance.
