BMW looks like it should have a hit on its hands with the ActiveHybrid3. Fuel economy is estimated in the mid-30s, and it has more horsepower than the 335i model.

BMW's newest ActiveHybrid not only adds a high-tech and energy efficient engine, but also boasts some nifty energy-saving tech inside at the 2012 Detroit auto show.
