ECO PRO Mode.
The ECO PRO Mode helps drivers reduce their fuel consumption by up to 20 percent, depending on their driving style – according to an internal BMW fuel consumption study.
The coasting function, the Route-Ahead Assistant and ECO PRO Route make it possible to save a further five percent.
The coasting function decouples the drive train from the engine and the vehicle rolls without the transmission. The car then “coasts” when the driver takes the foot from the gas between 50 and 160 km/h, does not apply the brakes, and the Route-Ahead Assistant does not adjust the speed.
Based on data from the navigation system, the Route-Ahead Assistant recognises curves, built-up areas, speed limits and motorway exits, and gives the driver tips in advance about when to stop accelerating.
ECO PRO Route shows the most efficient route based on the traffic situation, driving style and road conditions. The on-board computer displays the percentage of fuel that can be saved by driving along the route selected by ECO PRO Route.
