BMW has invested heavily in clean-diesel technology, but continues to fuss with hybrid-electric vehicle, or HEV, technology, as well as pure electric vehicle, or EV, technology. The ActiveE is the next step in its EV research. A four-seater, this rear-wheel drive coupe is based on the current 1 Series. BMW predicts that the ActiveE's 170-horsepower electric motor will accelerate it from a stop to 60 miles per hour in 4.5 seconds with a top speed of 90 miles per hour. Its lithium-ion battery will provide a range of about 100 miles, depending on conditions. Oldham predicts it will be produced.
