VEHICLE CONCEPT.

Versatility meets cost-effectiveness meets driving pleasure: The BMW 225xe iPerformance Active Tourer combines tried-and-tested flexibility and outstanding fuel consumption with typical BMW driving dynamics. Thanks to BMW eDrive technology from BMW EfficientDynamics, a range of up to 41 kilometres in the purely electric mode is possible – without any local emissions and without using a drop of fuel.

 

A space-saving design is used to accommodate the eDrive propulsion components – without any compromises in comfort, functionality or roominess. Externally, the iPerformance model differs from conventionally powered models with the eDrive badge on the C-pillars on both sides, for example, as well as the i badge on the front side panels. The blue kidney grille slats and blue wheel hubs are also unmistakeable signs of the vehicle's innovative drive technology. In the interior, the “eDrive” lettering can be found the driving modes switch, the gear knob and in the instrument cluster, where it remains visible for the entire journey.

INDIVIDUAL DRIVING CHARACTERISTICS.

As a plug-in hybrid, the BMW 225xe iPerformance Active Tourer has various different drive modes that allow the driver to significantly influence the actual consumption. This depends on both the driving mode selected and the driver’s personal behaviour. When the battery is fully charged, you can drive for up to 41 kilometres without using a single drop of fuel. In the AUTO eDrive mode, the optimal combination of electric motor and combustion engine enables the focus to be placed on top-quality efficiency.

  • Urban driving

    When driving in the city, the BMW 225xe iPerformance Active Tourer exploits the strengths of the electric drive system to the full. With a fully charged battery, short distances (up to 41 km) can be covered with no local emissions – through the city, without using one drop of petrol.

  • Day-to-day driving

    On your daily commute, the interplay between both drive systems in the plug-in hybrid also comes to the fore. In the AUTO eDrive mode, the intelligent combination of combustion engine and electric motor guarantees considerably lower consumption than that of petrol and diesel vehicles in this class. In short: Enjoy the versatility of the BMW 225xe iPerformance Active Tourer.

  • Long-distance driving

    On long journeys, the vehicle is powered by the combustion engine alone whenever the speed exceeds 125 km/h. When the driver is travelling at a low speed but requires maximum power to overtake, the electric motor is fed energy from the high-voltage battery and this then intervenes in a supportive role, delivering an extra surge of acceleration thanks to its high torque. When the driver brakes or releases the accelerator, the electric motor acts as a generator, using kinetic energy to deliver electricity for the high-voltage battery. This power can be called upon for subsequent overtaking manoeuvres. A combined fuel consumption of 7 litres per 100 km means that the vehicle has a range of 550 km on long journeys.

DRIVE TRAIN.

An extremely efficient Drive concept is a hallmark of the plug-in hybrid. This basically consists of a combustion engine at the front of the vehicle and an electric motor on the rear axle.
Depending on the situation and the charge level of the high-voltage battery, both are capable of powering the plug-in hybrid either individually or together. When only the combustion engine is active, the drive power is delivered via the front wheels. While the electric motor, for its part, delivers power to the rear wheels. This means that there is either an electric eDrive on the rear axle, an xDrive all-wheel drive or a pure front-wheel drive – all of which are controlled electronically.
When coasting or braking, the electric motor operates as a generator, transforming kinetic energy into electrical energy. This is stored in the high-voltage battery, from where it is subsequently available for supplying the electric motor with power.

INTELLIGENT ENERGY MANAGEMENT.

Intelligent energy management is one of the main pillars of the BMW iPerformance concept. This system coordinates the interaction of all BMW drive components with the electric motor in order to combine the best possible efficiency with great driving dynamics, and to increase the electric range.

 

The eDrive button allows the driver to choose between three electric drive modes: the standard AUTO eDRIVE mode, the purely electric MAX eDRIVE mode and the SAVE BATTERY mode, which maintains the charging status at a constant level.

  • AUTO eDrive mode

    In the AUTO eDrive mode, the intelligent BMW EfficientDynamics system determines the most efficient combination of electric motor and combustion engine – depending on the driving speed and the battery charging status. This mode is divided into two phases: If the battery charging status is between 100 % and 7 % you can drive at up to 80 km/h – free of local emissions and without using any fuel. At higher speeds or with more demanding requirements, the petrol engine switches on automatically. If the battery charge level falls below approx. 7 %, the BMW 225xe iPerformance Active Tourer can be driven in purely electric mode with moderate acceleration at up to 20 km/h and with gentle acceleration or a constant speed at 55 km/h.

  • MAX eDrive mode

    Electric driving fun to the max: In the MAX eDrive mode, you can enjoy purely electric driving at speeds of up to 125 km/h. At higher speeds or when the acceleration potential has been exhausted, the combustion engine switches on automatically.
     

  • SAVE BATTERY mode

    When the battery charging status is low, the SAVE BATTERY mode enables the battery to be charged by the combustion engine or allows the charging status to be maintained at 90 %. In this way, the driver can save the battery capacity for purely electric driving later.

  • Predictive selection

    Once the destination has been entered into the navigation system, predictive energy management analyses the planned route using constant data such as the speed limit and real-time information on the current traffic situation. The system then uses the purely electric driving mode efficiently and according to the situation and above all for sections of the route on which it is most worthwhile: in urban traffic for example.
     

  • Drive Performance Control

    The Driving Experience Control lets the driver choose between Comfort mode, for standard engine and transmission settings, ECO PRO mode, geared towards efficiency, and Sport mode, which enables even more dynamic driving. ECO PRO mode adjusts the characteristics of the accelerator pedal and transmission as well as the heating/air conditioning settings to optimise fuel consumption.


    ECO PRO mode reduces fuel consumption by up to 20 percent. Further fuel savings potential is possible with ECO PRO Route, which suggests an efficiency-optimised route that takes into account the volume of traffic, as well as individual driving styles and local conditions in order to suggest a route that optimises efficiency and thereby reduces fuel consumption.


    Comfort mode guarantees an extremely comfortable driving experience by suitably adjusting the settings of the suspension components. In Sport mode, all drive and suspension settings are adjusted for more dynamic driving. The engine is more spontaneously responsive, the gears of the automatic transmission are shifted at higher speeds, the shifting points for the manual transmission are shown later, and on the whole the vehicle reacts much more directly and dynamically.


    Drive Performance Control is available for both BMW 2 Series Active Tourer models with a conventional drive system and the BMW 225xe iPerformance Active Tourer.
