The introduction of groundbreaking drive system innovations sees BMW taking driving pleasure to consistently greater heights, while at the same time reducing fuel consumption and emissions to ever lower levels.

At the Tokyo Motor Show 2011 (3 – 11 December 2011) the German premium carmaker is underlining its pace-setting development expertise in this field with the presentation of next-generation BMW ActiveHybrid technology, new four-cylinder petrol engines with BMW TwinPower Turbo technology and – for the first time in the Japanese market – a six-cylinder in-line diesel engine with BMW BluePerformance technology.

This year’s Tokyo Show is hosting the world premiere of the new BMW ActiveHybrid 5. The full-hybrid Sedan brings together a six-cylinder in-line petrol engine, an electric drive system, an eight-speed automatic gearbox and a high-performance lithium-ion battery.

This package of technology allows the brand’s third hybrid model to be driven on purely electric power around town, offers drivers a boost function delivering extremely dynamic acceleration, and enables the car to coast with the combustion engine switched off.

The BMW ActiveHybrid 5 also comes with a globally unique intelligent energy management system, which works in tandem with the navigation system to prepare the car’s drive functions in advance for upcoming road conditions.

Members of the new generation of four-cylinder petrol engines with BMW TwinPower Turbo technology see action not only under the bonnet of the new BMW 1 Series, but also in the BMW X1 xDrive20i. And BMW TwinPower Turbo engines also provide the heartbeat of the new BMW 6 Series Coupé. Here again, the result is driving pleasure taken to another new level and efficiency without parallel in this market segment.

Advanced Diesel technology, including BMW BluePerformance, gives BMW another string to its bow when it comes to drastically reducing emissions on the road. Indeed, Japan is now preparing to welcome its first diesel BMW.

The BMW X5 xDrive35d BluePerformance combines a sporty, commanding appearance with the imposing pulling power and exemplary emissions of its 3.0-litre six-cylinder in-line engine. In addition to a diesel particulate filter and oxidation catalytic converter, its exhaust treatment package also features an AdBlue system with urea injection to reduce NOx levels in the car’s exhaust.

All of which allows BMW BluePerformance technology to make its exhaust emissions as clean as possible and therefore satisfy the world’s most stringent exhaust standards.
