BMW to Unveil New Energy Vehicle at Shanghai

Environment

With China quickly becoming the second most important market for BMW (behind North America), the German automaker has chosen China to be the only country that will be offered their New Energy Vehicle (NEV). Although full details haven't been released, the car is expected to be based off the long-wheelbase version of the current 5-Series sedan. The NEV is said to have the automaker's new ActiveHybrid 5 technology.

With China's new policy of having more fuel-efficient cars on the road, this technology seems like a logical choice for many customers. As of now, there aren't any plans to sell this specific model outside of China, but in this business, anything can change. The official debut will take place at the Shanghai Motor Show this April. Photos displayed are of 2010 BMW 5-Series ActiveHybrid Concept
