Lightbulb Introducing the BMW Concept Active Tourer Outdoor

COMMENTS

UPDATED: Added video from OutDoor Friedrichshafen Fair

The BMW Concept Active Tourer Outdoor will take to the stage at the OutDoor Friedrichshafen fair, treating the premium compact segment to another view of how interior space can be cleverly utilised for sport and leisure purposes. This concept car presents solutions that take a fresh route to combining sporting aesthetics and style with sustainable drive technology, compact dimensions and functionality. The environmentally friendly plug-in hybrid drive system, bringing together a combustion engine and an electric motor to provide a very special form of power delivery, ensures efficiency of the highest order.

• Compact dimensions, sporty design with generous levels of interior space. Variable rear compartment designed to accommodate sports and leisure equipment.

• Transversely mounted 1.5-litre petrol engine with front-wheel drive. New plug-in hybrid (PHEV) drive concept combines the benefits of an electric motor and the attributes of a traditional combustion engine to outstanding effect.

• Exclusive Gold Race Orange exterior paintwork accentuates the sporting appearance of the BMW Concept Active Tourer Outdoor.

• Easy-care, hard-wearing interior materials, such as MoonWhite and MoonRock Grey leather, stand up well to contact with outdoor equipment.

• A carrier system for two bicycles (integrated into the interior) and other clever details make the BMW Concept Active Tourer Outdoor the ideal companion for active recreational sports enthusiasts.

Looks alot better than the i3, even tho it looks like a Ford Focus mostly. Being a hybrid also makes it much more useful at this point in time.
meh, keeping my M3.

So we should waste 90% of the interior space by putting bikes in there instead of just mounting on the roof or the rear? >.<

I think it looks pretty good as is, but lets be honest. BMW is gonna shaft us with a watered down bland version. No cool mirrors/door handles/headlights/front&rear bumper/grills/ you get the point.

Forum full of M3 fans isn't going to receive this vehicle well... I think it looks great and I am also starting to look like that guy in the photoshoot so I'm moving into the target demographic I guess?

PS - Still an M3 fan

Probably going to be expensive. Considering a decently optioned MINI in Canada can cost almost 30k, I can easily imagine this to be over that especially since it's a hybrid. The Prius is already $26k base, so slap on the BMW premium and you're looking at a potentially expensive hybrid.

Too bad because this looks very good and something I'd be extremely interested in if the price was right.

Where does this fit in BMW's product lineup? Is this part of the i class of cars? Or is it below the X1?
