Hybrid Start Stop function.
Red lights, traffic jams, railway crossings – in everyday driving situations there are countless instances where the engine is idling, unnecessarily burning fuel. The Hybrid Start Stop function of the BMW ActiveHybrid 5 switches off the engine when the car stops briefly, avoiding needless fuel consumption.
The Hybrid Start Stop function in the BMW ActiveHybrid 5 automatically switches off the combustion engine as soon as the car comes to a complete stop. Then the high-performance battery ensures that important functions such as air conditioning continue to run. When the accelerator pedal is pressed again, the car starts off under electric power. If greater acceleration is desired, the combustion engine is connected again. The results: reduced consumption and fewer emissions.
