COMMENTS

BMW i presents a series of videos with some feedback from the electronauts who are part of the BMW ActiveE lease program.

The BMW ActiveE began leasing in select markets beginning in Fall 2011. It was made available for lease in Los Angeles, San Diego, San Francisco, Sacramento, New York, Boston and Connecticut.

The ActiveE has a maximum power output of 170 hp and a maximum torque of 184 lb-ft, the latter is available from a standstill as typical of electric powered vehicles. This makes for an acceleration from 0 to 60 mph in under nine seconds while top speed is electronically limited at around 90 mph.
