The BMW Active Tourer Concept will makes its debut at the 2012 Paris Motor Show.
With the debut of the new BMW Active Tourer Concept at this month’s Paris Motor Show we’ll come a giant step closer to learning what to expect when the Bavarian maker launches its all-new battery-car brand next year.
Though still a concept, the Active Tourer is a much closer take on the little i3 city car that will be the first offering from the new BMW i brand-within-a-brand. It will be followed soon after by the more sporty i8 – with several other electrified vehicles reportedly in the works.

Roughly the length of the latest BMW 1-Series, at 171 inches, nose-to-tail, and with a 105-inch wheelbase, the Active Tourer Concept also borrows some of the design features of the latest 3-Series sedan – notably the nose, with its slightly tilted double-kidney grille framed by twin headlamps topped by LED running lights. But the overall shape is more crossover-like, standing a full five inches taller than the 1-Series and four inches wider.
The Active Tourer Concept makes use of BMW's latest eDrive plug-in hybrid system.
