    A very nice machine indeed. I wish GM had a competitive vehicle in this segment.

    Well, it took the Germans a while to figure out how to get that 2Mode system into a product, but now it's here.

    It's very attractive.

    Now, will there be a 75% off sale like Macy's had?

    The following article says that the 7-series will be a mild hybrid, while the X6 will have the two-mode.
    http://www.worldcarfans.com/9090116....r-2009-release
    "The luxury sedan 7-series would make use of a mild hybrid, allowing the engine to be shut down when coasting or braking. Accessories would still run with the engine shut down, making use of an electric motor. Meanwhile, the X6 Sport Activity Vehicle would be paired with a full-hybrid system, letting the SAV run on pure electric power or using a combination of its internal combustible engine and a larger electric motor to power the vehicle."

    Dumb question....can someone explain to me just what a "two mode" system is? Does the Prius rely on one? Thanks in advance.

    ^ a two mode hybrid can run on the engine, electric motor, engine+electric motor. this is used by Toyota, ford, some gm's, & BMW X6.
