BMW TwinPower Turbo:
The multiple award-winning petrol and diesel engines with BMW TwinPower Turbo technology are among the innovations from BMW EfficientDynamics. They combine the latest fuel injection systems, fully-variable performance control and innovative turbocharger technology and therefore offer typical BMW torque with low consumption.
A completely new dimension of driving pleasure: the drive concept BMW eDrive, including an electric motor, a high voltage battery and the intelligent energy management, boasts impressive dynamics and, when driven in purely electrical mode, is locally emission-free. The newly-developed synchronous electric motor dazzles with enormous torque that remains constant from acceleration to maximum speed – for sustainable mobility with overwhelming agility. BMW eDrive stands for electric vehicles and Plug-in Hybrid models.
This technology reduces nitrogen oxides (NOx) generated by diesel engines to a minimum. While the combustion process itself is not affected, the diesel engines’ high degree of efficiency is preserved. BMW models equipped with BMW BluePerformance already meet the requirements of the EU6 emission norm, which demands a reduction of NOx emissions – even though it does not come into effect until 2014.
