BMW 2-Series Hybrid Prototype Caught on Shots at Nurburgring

The BMW 2-Serries Hybrid prototype is ending up in our news again, as the model in question was caught on shots while performing some track tests at Nurburgring.

The BMW 2-Series Hybrid model was first rumored during the International Media Launch, where the German carmaker launched its 2-Series Active Tourer front-wheel drive model, with the diesel-powered engines to be unveiled later on in March, at the 2014 Geneva Motor Show.

It was then when we clearly understood, also based on the info released at that time, that a 2-Series Active Tourer Hybrid might become available in a front-wheel drive as well, starting with 2015.

The BMW 2-Series Active Tourer will thus be powered by an electric motor, which will send the power to the front wheels, the carmaker also preparing an all-drive layout system.

The electric motor found at the rear, will be backed by a three-cylinder petrol unit, which will stand at the front wheels, both of them being enough powerful to allow a four-wheel drive mode.

We are still not sure about the performance that the engine would develop, but rumors also stated that the 2-Series Active Tourer Hybrid would come with 190 horsepower, making the car reach the 0 to 100 km/h mileage in under eight seconds.
