BMW has unveiled the Concept Active Tourer Outdoor, which is a new take on the Active Tourer concept that was unveiled last fall. The Concept Active Tourer Outdoor is designed for buyers that have a more active, sporty lifestyle.
BMW is using the OutDoor Friedrichshafen fair to debut the Concept Active Tourer Outdoor, which will demonstrate how a compact vehicle can combine comfort and the use of space with the enjoyment of sports and leisure. The plug-in hybrid also offers a preview of drive variants that promise to feature in compact class vehicles in the future. The concept is powered by a 1.5L engine that is mated to an electric motor, which generates a total 190 horsepower. That’s enough to accelerate the concept from 0-62 mph in eight seconds. The concept also has a top speed of 125 mph and has a combined fuel economy rating of 2.5 liters per 100 kilometres (94 mpg US/ 113 mpg imp).
The Concept Active Tourer Outdoor is painted in Gold Race Orange and its 20-inch wheels are also partly painted in the same color. Since the concept is geared towards buyers that have a more active lifestyle, one cool feature is a new carrier system for two bikes. Rather than mounting them on the outside of the vehicle, the concept’s carrier is integrated into the interior to save space. As well as keeping bicycles dry and clean, this also has the advantage of protecting them extremely effectively from theft and damage. And when not in use, the carrier system disappears away into the side structure of the car or the load compartment floor, without restricting interior space.
