We brought you live pictures of the BMW ActiveHybrid 7 from the show floor yesterday. Today, BMW has released pricing details on its new large luxury hybrid sedan, which will be available at dealerships in Spring 2011.
Prices will start at $103,125 (including destination and handling) for the ActiveHybrid 7 and $107,025 for the long wheelbase ActiveHybrid 7L.
That’s fairly expensive when compared to the $87,950 2010 Mercedes-Benz S400 Hybrid, but in line with the $108,800 Lexus LS Hybrid.
Refresher: The BMW ActiveHybrid 7 is powered by a 4.4L V8 engine that produces 440-hp and 475 lb-ft of torque. That is mated to 3-phase synchronous electric motor that helps produce a total of 455-hp / 516 lb-ft. Mated to an 8-speed automatic, 0-60 mph comes in 4.8 seconds with a top speed of 150 mph. BMW says that fuel-economy is improved by 15 percent when compared to the 750i.
