ECO PRO Mode.
Less consumption and fewer emissions at the touch of a button. Depending on individual driving style, The ECO PRO Mode (not in the BMW 760i/Li) reduces fuel consumption by up to 20 per cent. Making an additional 5 per cent savings potential possible are the functions of coasting, Route-ahead assistant and ECO Pro Route.*
When the ECO PRO Mode is activated via the Driving Experience Control, the accelerator pedal and transmission parameters together with the heating/climate control strategy are all intelligently adapted. ECO PRO tips help you to optimise your own driving behaviour and the Bonus range informs you of how many additional kilometres you have gained through driving with optimised consumption in ECO PRO Mode.
The optional Navigation system Professional in the latest generation extends the ECO PRO Mode with additional functions. The Route-ahead assistant anticipates local conditions and gives corresponding advice long before the driver becomes aware of the situation. If a built-up area or a speed limit starts around the next corner, the system recommends that drivers reduce speed before the bend by taking their foot off the accelerator pedal. When the instructions are heeded, the vehicle uses its own kinetic energy and coasts along the road with minimum fuel consumption. Depending on traffic density, individual driving style and local conditions, the ECO PRO Route offers the driver directions optimised for efficiency – involving only a minimum of additional time. Drivers can decide for themselves whether to take this recommendation using the displayed fuel consumption benefit.
