BMW X5

The boss is there and is putting everyone in their place: the all-new BMW X5. Its presence is clear for all to see – upright, powerful and elegant. The mighty one-piece double kidney grille hints at what will happen when it takes a deep breath. And the honed X design of the headlights leaves no doubt as to who will take the lead. Equipped with new technologies for more safety and maximum driving dynamics on every surface, the new BMW X5 knows where it’s going. And how to get there first.

BMW X3

The all-new BMW X3 is a statement of unlimited opportunities and an expression of sheer presence and freedom. From the very first glance, it impresses with its athletic appearance and fascinates with an exciting driving experience. Thanks to partially autonomous driving and the intelligent all-wheel drive system BMW xDrive, it offers supreme ride comfort both on and off the road. It therefore redefines the benchmarks in its class and makes one thing unmistakably clear: there is a great difference in how you reach your destinations.

Among the benefits for the driver of a plug-in hybrid are an almost silent driving experience in purely electric mode and additional acceleration power from the electric engine.

Many plug-in hybrid owners already manage to cover the majority of their routes electrically. After all, daily distances travelled are frequently less than 50 kilometres. Depending on the individual electricity tariff, this already results in significant savings compared with a classical combustion-engine vehicle. And there is no need at all to sacrifice the convenience of the latter’s range with a plug-in hybrid. If the battery charge or capacity is insufficient, the combustion engine is switched on automatically to meet the need.

There are also country-specific financial benefits for this category of vehicle: directly through subsidies for electric vehicles and indirectly through favourable taxes thanks to the lower CO2 emissions.

One important external factor influencing the performance and capacity of a battery is the temperature. As you probably know from your mobile phone battery, the performance is restricted in cold and hot temperatures. This is why it is important, especially in winter, to “precondition” the vehicle during the charging operation – in other words, to heat the battery and interior. Or to cool them down in summer. This not only saves you energy for the journey but means that, with an optimally temperature-conditioned battery, you have an added measure of efficiency from the outset. Optimised operating strategies in your vehicle also minimise the influences of temperature to a large extent. And did you know that the capacity of the battery also yields information on your available range? Apart from temperature, other factors affecting the range are devices, such as the air conditioning, the load carried and your driving style.

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 sailing or recuperation. Whether for vehicles ahead, speed limits, roundabouts, turn-offs or built-up areas – the system adjusts the strength of deceleration ideally to the traffic situation. As a result, use of the brake pedal can be reduced and the ride comfort increased – and all of this in an efficient manner.

If you leave your vehicle parked for a lengthy period, such as during your holiday, try and maintain a charge level of between 30% and 50%. In addition, the vehicle should not be connected to a charging station when left stationary for lengthy periods of time.

As its name suggests, a plug-in hybrid can be charged from a socket, a wallbox or at a public charging station. The maximum efficiency of a plug-in hybrid is achieved with a fully charged battery; which means that a charging facility should be available at home and at the workplace. Charge your plug-in hybrid as often as possible so that you always get the full benefit from the additional electric drive.
