DRIVING DYNAMICS THAT ELECTRIFY.

The BMW 2 Series iPerformance Active Tourer.

With its combination of BMW iPerformance and a BMW TwinPower Turbo engine, the BMW 225xe iPerformance Active Tourer offers both an electric driving experience and unlimited mobility. The intelligent interplay between both drive systems gives rise to the electrical xDrive. This system is regulated automatically and offers the best-possible traction and agility in every situation – with optimised consumption and CO2 emissions of up to 141.2 mpg and 49 to 46 g/km respectively.

Vehicle concept.

Versatility meets cost-effectiveness meets driving pleasure: The BMW 225xe iPerformance Active Tourer combines tried-and-tested flexibility and outstanding fuel consumption with typical BMW driving dynamics. Thanks to BMW eDrive technology from BMW EfficientDynamics, a range of up to 25 miles in the purely electric mode is possible – without any local emissions and without using a drop of fuel.

A space-saving design is used to accommodate the eDrive propulsion components – without any compromises in comfort, functionality or spaciousness. On the outside, the vehicle differs from the conventionally-powered model thanks to an LED light ring on the charging port as well as the “eDrive” lettering at the c-pillars, which indicates the vehicle’s innovative drive technology. In the interior, the “eDrive” lettering can be found on the door sills, the driving modes switch, the gear stick and in the instrument cluster, where it remains visible for the entire journey.

Individual driving characteristics.

As a BMW iPerformance model, the BMW 225xe Active Tourer has various different drive modes that allow the driver to significantly influence the actual consumption. This depends on both the driving mode selected and the driver’s personal behaviour. When the battery is fully charged, you can drive for up to 25 miles without using a single drop of fuel. In the AUTO eDrive mode, the optimal combination of electric motor and combustion engine enables the focus to be placed on top-quality efficiency.

Drive train.

The new BMW TwinPower Turbo 3-cylinder petrol engine features agile power delivery, excellent responsiveness even at low engine speeds, an awe-inspiring sound and tremendous efficiency. Deployed in conjunction with an electric motor, it reveals itself as a surprisingly powerful drive unit. The vehicle's drive primarily consists of a combustion engine that powers the front wheels, along with an electric motor on the rear axle. Both of these can power the vehicle either individually or together.
 

Intelligent energy management.

Intelligent energy management is one of the main pillars of the BMW eDrive concept. This system coordinates the interaction of all BMW drive components with the electric motor in order to combine the best possible efficiency with great driving dynamics, and to increase the electric range.
The eDrive button allows the driver to choose between three different electric drive modes: AUTO eDrive (standard), MAX eDrive or SAVE BATTERY.

Connectivity.

Always connected to your BMW: Via smartphone (iOS or Android), not only BMW Remote Services such as remote locking are available, but also hybrid-specific functions. This ensures that you always have an overview of the consumption and efficiency values of your BMW iPerformance 225xe Active Tourer. BMW Services for every situation, which can be used inside the vehicle – and outside.

Interior & functionality.

The BMW 225xe Active Tourer is economical with its fuel consumption − and more than generous when it comes to space. Thanks to the elevated seating position, rear-seat passengers enjoy an outstanding view. The high-voltage battery is stored compactly under the rear seat bench, meaning that there’s always enough room for your transport needs. The standard 40:20:40 split-folding rear seat further enhances the practical qualities of the vehicle. This increases the flexibility of the luggage compartment and also facilitates the transportation of bulky objects.
Fuel consumption is determined in accordance with the ECE driving cycle, made up of approximately one-third urban traffic and two-thirds extra-urban driving (based on the distance covered). CO2 emissions are measured in addition to fuel consumption. Further information on the official fuel consumption and on the official specific CO2 emissions of new automobiles can be found in the guidelines on fuel consumption and CO2 emissions of new automobiles (see http://carfueldata.direct.gov.uk/). The figures for fuel consumption and CO2 emissions apply in conjunction with the equipment selected.
