Whether the goal is maximum performance or minimum fuel consumption – for us, the focus is always on delivering quintessential BMW driving pleasure.
BMW EfficientDynamics is the strategy developed by BMW to minimise fuel consumption and emissions while simultaneously increasing dynamics and driving pleasure. It is a comprehensive technology package that includes the drive train, energy management and the vehicle concept – and is standard in every BMW.
The new generation of petrol and diesel engines in the BMW TwinPower Turbo family is responsible for the improved performance and lower fuel consumption. Optimised aerodynamics, along with intelligent lightweight construction, contribute to increased efficiency. The latter lowers the weight while at the same time increasing the car's rigidity. The BMW concept of intelligent lightweight construction involves deploying the right material in the right place, because every material has its specific strengths. This is a demonstration of the impressive innovation leadership at BMW, the only major car manufacturer that relies on ultralight and highly rigid carbon fibre (CFRP) as a key material. BMW also focuses on forward-thinking drive train concepts such as the BMW eDrive technology with a 100 % electric drive train and plug-in hybrids.
