Brake Energy Regeneration:
Kinetic energy is released as soon as the driver applies the brake or lets the vehicle coast. Brake Energy Regeneration transforms this into electrical energy and uses it to recharge the battery. The power the engine requires to charge the battery is thus reduced, resulting in lower consumption and emissions.
ECO PRO Mode:
Activating the ECO PRO Mode, everything is geared towards greater efficiency. Depending on your individual driving style, this results in a reduction in fuel consumption of up to 20 per cent (according to an internal BMW fuel consumption study).
A completely new dimension of driving pleasure: the drive concept BMW eDrive, including an electric motor, a high voltage battery and the intelligent energy management, boasts impressive dynamics and, when driven in purely electrical mode, is locally emission-free. The newly-developed synchronous electric motor dazzles with enormous torque that remains constant from acceleration to maximum speed – for sustainable mobility with overwhelming agility.
