2011 BMW ActiveHybrid 7 qualifies for up to a $900 tax credit

Article by Christian A., on August 27, 2010

Under the Alternative Motor Vehicle provision, the BMW ActiveHybrid 7 has been certified by the Internal Revenue Service to get up to a $900 tax credit. This seriously gives a boost to the BMW EfficientDynamics strategy.

ActiveHybrid 7 features an electric motor with BMW's 4.4-liter twin-turbo V8 and new 8-speed automatic transmission.

This enables the vehicle to accelerate from 0 -- 60 mph in only 4.7 seconds while offering EPA fuel economy estimates of 17 mpg city and 26 mpg highway.

This stands for an improvement of almost 18% when compared to the non-hybrid 750i/Li. The ActiveHybrid 7 is equipped with Engine Start/Stop, which helps the driver avoid the wasteful act of engine idling in traffic.

Even when the engine is off, systems like the radio, Bluetooth phone connection and air-conditioning can continue running due to its lithium-ion battery. This brings the number of BMW vehicles that qualify for the Alternative Motor Vehicle Tax Credit to five.

The first was the ActiveHybrid X6, and it was followed by BMW's Advanced Diesel 335d Sedan and X5 xDrive35d.

The standard and long-wheelbase versions of the ActiveHybrid 7 are the fourth and fifth BMW models to qualify for this credit. The first 2011 BMW ActiveHybrid 7s have started to arrive at US BMW centers.
