The 2012 BMW Active Hybrid 5 can drive in all-electric mode up to a speed of 37 mph, for zero emissions and the lithium-ion battery can store enough energy to provide a all-electric driving range of up to 2.5 miles at an average speed of 22 mph. Even though the ActiveHybrid 5 is a hybrid sedan, it can still run from 0 to 60 mph in just 5.7 seconds.
