2013 BMW ActiveHybrid 7 Delivers 3 Series-Like Fuel Economy

New for 2013 in the BMW lineup is an updated 7 Series hybrid, delivering fuel economy that’s nearly as impressive as the significantly smaller 3 Series.

Replacing the V8 engine with a new hybrid turbocharged inline-six the ActiveHybrid 7 is sure to please fuel-conscious luxury car shoppers with an EPA rating of 22-mpg city and 30-mpg highway. For comparison the BMW 328i with a turbocharged 4-cylinder and significantly less weight to lug around gets 22/33 mpg.

Considering just how large of a sedan the BMW 7-Series is, those figures are extremely impressive. Factor in the fact that the ActiveHybrid 7 has 349 hp and 367 lb-ft of torque, and you’d think there’s no good news left.

That’s until the German automaker brags about the 2013 ActiveHybrid 7’s price tag. Available only in long-wheelbase form, the 2013 ActiveHybrid 7 starts at $84,895 – a surprising $17,000 less than last year’s offering.
