BMW will be unveiling the second version of the Concept Active Tourer [See Official Thread for first concept], which it calls the Concept Active Tourer Outdoor, on July 12, 2013 - at the 2013 OutDoor Exhibition in Friedrichshafen, Germany.

No preview image of the second concept was released with this announcement, but the company says that the concept is aimed at "meeting the special needs of an outdoor and leisure time oriented target group."

The BMWNA CEO has confirmed that the U.S. will be receiving the production version of the Concept Active Tourer. The first Concept Active Tourer concept is a plug-in hybrid powered by a 1.5L TwinPower Turbo engine, an electric motor, and a lithium-ion battery. Total output exceeds 190 HP (140 kW) and 200 Nm (147 lb-ft) torque which propels the car from 0-100 in less than eight seconds, with a top speed of around 200 km/h (124 mph) and travel more than 30 km (18.6 miles) on electricity alone.

Note: both the images displayed above and on the homepage are the original Concept Active Tourer, not the Concept Active Tourer "Outdoor" concept to be debuted next month.
