With BMW EfficientDynamics, BMW combines efficiency and driving pleasure with the aim of approaching the ultimate goal of zero-emissions mobility.
It has enabled the BMW Group to reduce the CO2 emissions of its European fleet of new cars by 30% since 1998, with a further 25% reduction anticipated by the summer of 2020. As of summer 2013 there are already 22 BMW models under 120g CO2/km. Our cars’ intelligent energy management and lightweight construction, as well as improvements in aerodynamics and engine efficiency all combine to make sustainable mobility a reality even today.
Every BMW features the very latest BMW EfficientDynamics technologies. These include BMW TwinPower TurboTechnology, the Auto Start-Stop function and the ECO PRO Mode. Our research also focuses on the development of innovative engine technologies such as BMW ActiveHybrid and BMW eDrive technology, as well as the BMW Hydrogen 7 with hydrogen drive.
Inspired by the EfficientDynamics philosophy, BMW i develops visionary new vehicle concepts based on electromobility, such as the BMW i3 (Megacity Vehicle) and the BMW i8. As well as featuring many existing BMW EfficientDynamics technologies, these vehicles also benefit from innovations in intelligent lightweight construction, such as the use of carbon. Our engineers’ talent for innovation has brought about a reduction in fuel consumption and emissions and a simultaneous increase in performance and driving pleasure − all of which makes every drive in your BMW even more enjoyable.
