#8: BMW ActiveHybrid 7

  • Style: 750i 4dr Sedan (4.4L 8cyl Turbo gas/electric hybrid 8A)
  • Combined (city and highway) MPG: 20
  • Purchase price: $101,545
  • True cost of ownership: $122,076

BMW’s ActiveHybrid 7 has relatively good fuel economy and is also particularly powerful. However, the true cost of the car is much more than the $101,000 price tag. After five years, outside costs, including taxes and fees, insurance and financing interest, ownership of the vehicle averages more than $122,000. The ActiveHybrid 7 does not have particularly good JD Power scores, earning a three out of five for both quality and design. Sales also have been low, with only 118 registrations in the U.S. in 2011.
