Every BMW has BMW EfficientDynamics technologies such as the Automatic Start/Stop function, Brake Energy Regeneration or Electric Power Steering as standard. Combining to provide intelligent energy management, these technologies are already ensuring sustainable mobility today.


ECO PRO mode permits fuel savings of up to 20%, without you having to take any action. On top of this, approximately 5% of fuel can be saved by means of additional functions. The overall saving is converted into a specific mileage and displayed as a bonus range in the on-board computer. As a result, it is possible to see what distance can be covered at all times.


The consumption-optimised ECO PRO mode ensures that the accelerator pedal and transmission parameters together with the heating/climate control strategy are all intelligently adapted. ECO PRO tips help you to enhance your own driving behaviour and the Bonus range informs you of how many additional miles you have gained by driving his way.


As you press down on the brake, energy is produced. This is valuable kinetic energy that can be exploited. Brake Energy Regeneration transforms it into electrical energy and uses it to charge the battery. This means less effort is also required from the engine to charge the battery, which in turn reduces fuel consumption and emissions.


Conventional systems for supporting the driver’s steering power are made possible by hydraulics. They are in permanent operation – even if the driver is not moving the steering wheel at all. And this costs energy. In the case of Electric Power Steering, an electric motor replaces the hydraulics and only becomes active when the  driver actually moves the steering wheel. On straight roads or with a constant steering angle in corners, the system does not intervene and uses no energy. Fuel consumption is reduced as a result, while the typical BMW dynamic driving experience is retained.

Energy-saving technologies for efficient driving pleasure.

Different situations demand individual actions. Energy-saving technologies such as the Optimum Shift Indicator or the Automatic Stop/Start function help the driver to choose a better course of action and thus drive more efficiently.
