Thumbs up BMW X6 activehybrid photos leak ahead of Frankfurt Motor Show

Here are the first official pics of the BMW X6 hybrid, leaked out ahead of its official unveil at the Frankfurt Motor Show next month. The X6 is equipped with a hybrid drivetrain which pairs up a V8 gasoline engine with two electric motors.

Reported output is 468bhp and 575 lb-ft tq, with a quoted 0-62mph of 5.6! BMW claims that the X6 ActiveHybrid, which can run on pure electric power for a mere 1.6 miles or 2.5 km at speeds of up to 37 mph or 60 km/h, has a combined fuel economy rating of 28.5 mpg, though its unclear if this number is US mpg or IMP mpg. Cosmetic differences to the regular X6 is a hood power bulge, special wheels and special badging, as well as the metallic blue color seen in the photos below.

"Reported output is 468bhp and 575 lb-ft tq, with a quoted 0-62mph of 5.6",
standard 50i 0-62 is 5.4 so the extra weight of the motors (battery ?) make it slower ?

Even if it's IMP 28.5 mpg, it will still be around US 23.7 mpg combined fuel economy. With 468bhp and 575 lb-ft tq, it's good improvement. BMW should replace the standard X6 models with this hybrid version.
