BMW hasn't had the best of luck with their hybrid lineup, so the company is hoping for better success with the new ActiveHybrid 5.

Recently unveiled at the Tokyo Motor Show, the car features a lithium-ion battery, a 306 PS (225 kW / 302 hp) turbocharged 3.0-liter six-cylinder engine and a 56 PS (40 kW / 55 hp) electric motor. This gives the AH5 a combined maximum output of 340 PS (250 kW / 335 hp) and 450 Nm (332 lb-ft) of torque.

The powertrain is connected to an eight-speed automatic transmission which enables the car to accelerate from 0-100 km/h (62 mph) in 5.9 seconds. Depending on which tires are selected, owners can expect to average between 6.4 and 7.0 L/100 km (44 - 40 mpg imp / 36.7 - 33.6 mpg US) while having CO2 emissions of 149 and 163 g/km.

On the styling front, the ActiveHybrid 5 is distinguished by a revised grille, special badging and matte chrome tailpipes. Customers can also order exclusive Bluewater metallic paint and 18-inch "Streamline" alloy wheels.

Inside, the cabin is equipped with additional standard equipment, special door sill plates and an aluminum "ActiveHybrid 5" badge on the center console.
