OTHERS MIGHT DISCUSS THE FUTURE OF MOBILITY.
WE'RE CREATING IT.
At BMW, we've stopped simply asking what if the impossible was possible and started manufacturing it. Our engineers have pioneered some of the most advanced mobility solutions that have never been seen before. Innovations like performance-driven electric mobility, a more practical and cleaner diesel and powerful hybrids - all marrying performance with efficiency.
ADVANCED DIESEL VEHICLES. FUEL–EFFICIENT POWER.
The all-new 3 Series and 5 Series Diesels are part of BMW's continued commitment to making EfficientDynamics part of every vehicle we make. A powerful yet efficient alternative, diesel offers something for every driver. The 328d Sedan features an impressive 45 MPG highway and 280 lb-ft of torque, while the 535d Sedan offers an unrivaled 413 lb-ft of torque paired with 38 MPG highway.* Numbers like these make it clear that with diesel, there's no need to decide between power and efficiency.

Actual mileage will vary based upon options, driving conditions, driving habits, and highway condition. ©2013 BMW of North America, LLC. The BMW name, model names and logo are registered trademarks.
ActiveE. 100% ELECTRIC. 100% BMW.
The BMW ActiveE Field Trial began in January 2012, when the first of our 700 BMW Electronauts got behind the wheel of the all-electric BMW ActiveE. This innovative vehicle combines zero-emission technologies, driving exhilaration, and BMW performance to consistently deliver a thrilling experience with every mile driven. These vehicles have been collecting data since the start of the field trial, compiling learnings that have informed the revolutionary BMW i vehicles. Get a glimpse into the lives of our electric vehicle drivers and see their collective impact with the Electronaut Effect.

4-CYLINDER EFFICIENCY. 6-CYLINDER POWER.
The new 2.0-liter TwinPower Turbo 4-cylinder engine is unrivaled in performance. Making its American debut in the
Z4 sDrive28i, and now available in the all-new 328i and 528i, it boasts 260 lb-ft of torque, which is 30% more than its
6-cylinder equivalent. The maximum output of its 240 hp is achieved at 5,000 rpm - that's 1,500 rpm lower than the former 3.0-liter 6-cylinder engine. Encased in an all-aluminum crankcase, it's also lighter and more compact. With powerful and efficient performance like this, our smallest engine will surely take your breath away.
BMW i. BORN ELECTRIC.
Welcome to a new world of visionary mobility. Where the all-electric i3 concept car will be light, safe and use highly innovative materials like Carbon Fiber Reinforced Plastic as it seamlessly navigates the urban environment. Where the plug-in hybrid i8 concept car delivers the performance of a sports car, with the fuel consumption of a small car. Where a car company is building things beyond cars to guide the way we move. Welcome to BMW i.

OUR ActiveHybrids HAVE REINVENTED THE HYBRID CATEGORY.
A core part of the BMW EfficientDynamics program, ActiveHybrid technology allows for greater driving dynamics than a conventional hybrid car and at the same time meaningfully reduces fuel consumption.
In fact, our ActiveHybrid 7 Series is now the world's fastest street-legal hybrid Sedan.
The 455-hp V-8 rockets from 0-60 in 4.7 seconds
while delivering a 17% efficiency gain versus its all-gasoline counterpart. Our ActiveHybrid X6 has two electric motors and a 480-hp V-8 turbo engine - making it the world's most powerful hybrid.
Claim based on BMW AG 0-60 MPH test results of 4.7 seconds for MY 2011 ActiveHybrid 750i and 4.8 seconds for MY 2011 ActiveHybrid 750Li. Actual acceleration results may vary, depending on 1 specification of vehicle; road and environmental conditions; testing procedures and driving style. These results should be used for comparison only and verification should not be attempted on public 1 roads. BMW urges you to obey all posted speed laws and always wear safety belts.

REVOLUTIONARY ENGINE TECHNOLOGY.
The concept behind our patented Valvetronic technology is simple: to enable the engine to breathe more easily. This exceptional engineering allows for increased power output and optimized fuel-efficiency by varying the lift height of the valves to regulate intake instead of using a traditional throttle. This means that at lower engine loads, the valves open a smaller amount, whereas at full power they open completely. This revolutionary technology has helped make it possible for BMW to improve its fleet average fuel economy more than any other manufacturer, while at the same time improving performance substantially.
THE IDEA IS SIMPLE: WHEN YOU STOP, SO WILL YOUR ENGINE.
Red lights, long trains, traffic jams, road work. There are countless instances when your engine unnecessarily uses fuel while your vehicle is not in motion. With the intelligent Auto Start-Stop function-an innovation developed as part of BMW EfficientDynamics-your BMW is designed to not only reduce fuel consumption, but also lower emissions so your engine can automatically turn off when it's not needed, and restart when it is.
Auto Start-Stop is managed by a central control unit that monitors the battery.
To ensure passenger comfort and safety, Auto Start-Stop is only active when certain conditions are met. These include, but are not limited to:
- An adequately charged battery
- An engine at the ideal operating temperature
- Fully closed doors
- Fastened seatbelts
