Last month we started bringing you information on BMW working on a hybrid version of the X6 SUV . Today is time to get a little bit closer to X6 Active Hybrid. Latest spy shots caught it testing in Germany with a big (nasty) scoop on the hood. Lets just hope BMW will drop it from the production version.
Set to be revealed at the beginning of 2009 the X6 Active Hybrid will come with a two-mode hybrid system that features two electric motors housed in the hybrid transmission. This transmission means the X6 can run on electric power only. It also allows start-stop running in traffic, boosts the engine under acceleration and recovers energy under braking.
