ECO PRO Mode.
ECO PRO Mode helps you to drive especially efficiently. As soon as you select the consumption-friendly ECO PRO Mode fitted as standard using the Driving Experience Control, the intelligent system goes into action and – depending on your individual driving characteristics – enables you to reduce fuel consumption.
ECO PRO Mode gears everything towards maximum reduction of consumption: accelerator pedal and gearbox parameters as well as shift points are all optimised. The heating/climate control strategy is adapted to achieve optimum consumption. On the Control Display you can read how ECO PRO Mode is actively lowering energy consumption.
ECO PRO tips advise you on how to drive more efficiently – it m ay for example recommend that you accelerate moderately. Which saving potentials are implemented is for you, the driver, to decide. Following the ECO PRO tips will enable you to achieve a reduction in fuel consumption of up to 20%*. The bonus range in the on-board computer shows you exactly how many additional kilometres you can now drive.
If using the BMW Navigation system Professional, you have the option of selecting the ECO PRO Route. The system recommends the route with the lowest consumption – on the basis of individual driving characteristics, the traffic situation and the route profile. This way you can reduce fuel consumption with only a minimal increase in time.
If you’re curious to find out how efficiently you are driving with the ECO PRO Mode, you can simply take a look at the consumption history. The Efficiencytainment displays also show which technological innovations are currently being employed to improve efficiency. You can thus see when Brake Energy Regeneration is operating and when the Auto Start Stop function is active.
