In your BMW plug-in hybrid, anticipatory hybrid operation helps you reach your destination efficiently with active destination guidance. So use the active guidance function even if you already know the way. The use of available electrical energy can be distributed intelligently and optimally according to your route, allowing you to drive electrically in town and in the destination area.
In a plug-in hybrid, the familiar BMW driving modes are also extended by the HYBRID ECO PRO driving mode. This optimises the efficiency of drive, comfort, light and air conditioning functions. The Forward View Assistant is a special feature of this mode. It shows you situational tips for more efficient driving in the Head-Up Display or the instrument combination in your field of vision - for example, it recommends taking your foot off the accelerator if a speed limit is imminent. Another helpful function is the Driving Style Analysis, which analyses the efficiency of your driving style in the vehicle menu and provides helpful tips for even more efficient driving.
In newer BMW vehicles with hybrid drive (e.g. BMW X5 xDrive45e), adaptive recuperation also supports you when you release the accelerator pedal. With the help of an intelligent and situation-adaptive control system, the vehicle decides independently between coasting or recuperation. Whether a vehicle is in front, speed limits, roundabouts, turns or built-up areas - the system optimally adapts the level of deceleration to the traffic situation. As a result, brake pedal actuations can be reduced and driving comfort increased - and all this in an efficient way.
