Spied: BMW 2 Series Active Tourer Plug-In Hybrid
The BMW 2 Series Active Tourer plug-in hybrid was spotted wearing little camouflage during a test trial in Spain. The light camouflage tries to hide the plug-in cover on the left front fender and some final design details.
Other specific details of this model are the roof wing that helps with aerodynamics and a “mysterious” metal box on the rear axle.
The front spoiler design is specific to this model compared to the one fitted as standard and optional with M package.
In the concept form, BMW announced that the combined power for the hybrid is around 200 horsepower from a gasoline engine and electric motor. It remains unknown if it will be offered with the xDrive option.
