Electric Motor

The BMW eDrive gives you pure, emissions-free performance. The rear-wheel driven BMW ActiveE is powered by a 125 kW (170 hp) and 250 Nm (185 lb ft) electric motor which develops full torque from a standing start for aggressive acceleration.

The Battery

The BMW ActiveE stores 32kWh in advanced lithium-ion batteries. Depending on weather conditions and driving style, the BMW ActiveE will give you a range of 80-100 miles on a full charge.


Based on the BMW 1 Series Coupe, the BMW ActiveE has an aerodynamic shoulder line, long wheelbase, flowing roof and powerful rear design. Silver-blue accents along the contour of the body illustrate the circuitry that forms the electronic heart of the BMW ActiveE. The interior is defined by Pearl Grey Dakota leather upholstery with decorative blue stitching. 

Driving Experience

It’s everything you’d expect from a BMW: instant acceleration, impressive power, stable cornering and intelligent ergonomics. And because it’s 100% electric, it has a silent motor and regenerative braking technology. You’ve never driven anything like it.
