BMW eDRIVE.

More energy. Less fuel.

BMW eDrive offers maximum driving pleasure almost silently and without driving emissions. Three components form the core of BMW eDrive: the electric motor, the lithium-ion high performance battery and intelligent energy management.

Charging

Forward looking mobility.

BMW eDrive boasts impressive dynamics. With its combination of electric motor, lithium-ion high performance battery and intelligent energy management, it provides an inspiringly agile driving experience. And when driven purely electrically, it is locally emission-free.

The electric motor is an innovative development of the BMW Group and an integral constituent of all electrically powered BMW models. With the battery fully charged, it provides the BMW 7 Series iPerformance, for example, with a maximum range of 28 miles in purely electrical driving mode. This means it will be possible to cover most everyday distances without local emissions. Depending on requirements, the electric motor can also be used to achieve particularly powerful short bursts of acceleration – such as when overtaking.

All vehicles with BMW eDrive technology obtain their energy for electric driving from a high tech electricity storage device. The lithium-ion high performance batteries are combined with a cooling system that constantly keeps the battery at optimum operating temperature, thus increasing output and service life. Recharging is possible wherever electricity is available. Even a conventional 230-volt household socket is sufficient.

Intelligent energy management’s core task is to guarantee the best possible efficiency and performance. It also controls further functions from BMW EfficientDynamics that are specially coordinated for drivetrains with a synchronous electric motor.
