  • 4. LiveMango India PR India Press Release, News, Information and Everything in between! http://www.livemango.com Brake Energy Regeneration: As soon as the driver takes his/her foot off the accelerator, the car’s redundant kinetic energy is transformed into storable electrical energy. The battery is thus charged “for free”. The result: Less engine power is needed to feed the battery which saves fuel. Electronic Power Steering: The electromechanical steering only operates during the actual steering process. When driving straight ahead, or at a constant steering angle, the electric motor does not consume any energy. Auto Start/Stop function turns off the engine when power is not required – for example, in a traffic jam or at a traffic light. The effect: no fuel consumption, no emissions. Run-Flat tyres remain functional even after a complete loss of pressure. Hence, a spare tyre is no longer required, reducing vehicle weight, enhancing performance and reducing fuel consumption. www.bmw.in To view the photograph, please click on the link given below: Dr. Andreas Schaaf, President, BMW India with the new BMW X3 CONTACT DETAILS Abhay Dange, Press and Corporate Affairs, BMW India, +91 9910481013/ + 91 (124) 4566600, Abhay.dange@bmw.in Richa Sharma, Press and Corporate Affairs, BMW India, +91 9910022148/ + 91 (124) 4566 656 , Richa.sharma@bmw.in page 4 / 4Powered by TCPDF (www.tcpdf.org)
