In all – and for all to follow – the Series has created a framework the industry’s ﬁ rst drive-by-wire electronic throttle control; both helped to match performance for combining scintillating performance with tantalizing luxury, enhanced margins of safety, gains with improved efﬁ ciency and reduced emissions. Earlier models also introduced daylight- and ever greater efﬁ ciency.
BMW EFFICIENT DYNAMICS – THE BMW 7 SERIES SEDAN’SVEHICLES THAT REQUIRE LITTLE AND GIVE A LOT. EFFICIENT DYNAMICS INITIATIVE AT A GLANCE.BMW was one of the ﬁ rst automotive manufacturers to pursue efﬁ cient driving technologies – one part of our award-winning sustainability strategy. Our commitment to Efﬁ cientDynamics meanswe are continuously developing innovative systems that bring us closer to our long-term goal of emissions-free mobility. However, we remain equally committed to driving pleasure, which is beingpursued in different ways. First, there is the continuing optimization of conventional diesel- and gasoline-powered models. Second, BMW hybrid vehicles are already on the road. Third, the ﬁ rst % electrically powered BMW – the BMW ActiveE – is being distributed in a ﬁ eld trial to customers. And fourth, the ﬂ eet of BMW Hydrogen vehicles impressively demonstrated the potentialfor combining hydrogen drive with a combustion engine.Since BMW has been able to reduce the CO emissions of its entire ﬂ eet by approximately percent. BMW has rolled out more than two million vehicles equipped with Efﬁ cientDynamics: models already produce less than g of CO per mile, and BMW intends to achieve a further percent reduction by . BMW Efﬁ cientDynamics represents the most comprehensivepackage of innovative technologies currently in production, for reducing fuel consumption and emissions while simultaneously creating The Ultimate Driving Machine. ®Different paths to the same destination: unmistakable BMW driving pleasure.In early BMW launched its ﬁ rst production models with hybrid drive: the BMW ActiveHybrid and the BMW ActiveHybrid X . Both models offer an unparalleled combination of increased fuelefﬁ ciency, reduced emissions and thrilling performance. The BMW ActiveE, with its innovative % electric drive system, will introduce a whole new form of dynamic performance, paving theway for the future of emissions-free mobility.

A BMW’s integrated front bmwusa.com/EfficientDynamics spoiler reduces the amount of air owing underneath, minimizing front-end lift. This allows a BMW to hug the road at higher speeds for excellent stability. Double-VANOS VANOS is BMW’s valve timing system that can “steplessly” vary the points in the combustion cycle when valves open and close. Double-VANOS refers to the fact that it operates on both the intake and exhaust camshafts. Electronically controlled in response to engine speed, load and temperature, VANOS reduces emissions, and enhances low- to medium-speed torque, as well as fuel ef ciency.

BMW ActiveHybrid 36 | 37THE MOST DYNAMIC WAY TO DRIVE A HYBRID. Forget everything you previously thought about hybrids: that they are slow, unexciting vehicles that sacriﬁ ce performance, space and luxury in the name of frugality. The BMW ActiveHybrid blends all the outstanding attributes of the Series with greatly enhanced efﬁ ciency. In fact, the BMW ActiveHybrid is the world’s fastest hybrid vehicle, rocketing smoothly from to mph in an incredible . seconds, while realizing up to percent greater fuel economy than the non-hybrid Series. This “mild” hybrid gets its power from two closely interlinked drive units that permanently work together. BMW’s TwinPower Turbo V- combustion engine – the main drive source – puts maximum torque at your command, even at low engine speeds. It’s linked to an electric motor with a storage battery, which generates a V- -worthy power boost for blistering acceleration. The ActiveHybrid is also designed to minimize the weight and space requirements of the normally bulky hybrid components. True to the philosophy of Efﬁ cientDynamics, BMW uses innovative technology to combine maximum driving pleasure with the lowest possible fuel consumption and emissions.

BMW ActiveHybrid 38 | 39 YOU KNOW WHAT A HYBRID IS. YOU NEED TO KNOW WHAT BMW MAKES OF IT. In the BMW ActiveHybrid , the combustion engine and electric motor work closely together. Depending upon the situation – maintaining current speed, generating electricity to run various features, or providing bursts of power needed for quick acceleration – one unit backs up the other to an optimal degree. This serves to enhance the ef cient performance of BMW’s TwinPower Turbo V- engine, generating V- performance with six-cylinder fuel economy. Among other factors, the low overall weight of the system makes the BMW ActiveHybrid the front-runner among hybrids when it comes to acceleration.
