What is it? The ActiveE is a electric vehicle concept based on the BMW 1 Series Coupe. It will follow a similar pilot test program as is underway with the Mini E, putting private citizens and fleet users behind the wheel.
Features of the ActiveE include rear-wheel drive and a maximum speed of 90 mph. It will have a similar driving range of 100 miles on a single charge as the Mini E. A new arrangement of the drive components allow for four full-sized seats, plus a luggage compartment. (The Mini E is a two seater, due to the battery packaging.) The electric motor is integrated in the rear axle, power electronics positioned above the motor, and electrical energy is stored in a lithium-ion battery pack. Charge time with a conventional outlet is about four and a half hours.
The ActiveE will feature remote functions such as using a cell phone to check charge status, search for charging stations, and turn on heating and cooling functions.
