Intelligent lightweight construction.
Thanks to lightweight construction, every gram shed from the vehicle's weight increases driving pleasure. The less weight there is to move, the less energy is needed to move it.
BMW applied this insight to vehicle construction back in the 1930s and has been continually refining it ever since. Our engineers constantly ask themselves: where does it make sense to reduce weight? And where would it be impractical? The result: intelligent lightweight construction. This encompasses the use of ultra-lightweight materials like magnesium in the dashboard mount or aluminium in the suspension and bonnet. An undercarriage cover made from textile materials has a positive acoustic effect and also reduces weight. This means that the car as a whole is significantly lighter than its predecessors.
