Within this article we discuss BMW technology EffcientDynamics. It’s BMW’s way of delivering more fuel efficiency and environmental friendliness without comprising the usual standards of fantastic driving pleasure.Regular BMW Service is essential for optimum BMW performance.
In this article we take a close look at EffcientDynamics. We will list them all and discuss what each of them actually provides to the car.
The technology involved
Auto start stop
This saves plenty of fuel and emissions from the car being released. When cars are idle the car is switched off so energy is saved. The engine is able to be turned on simply by pressing down on the clutch.
Brake energy regeneration
Applying the brakes will not waste energy with this technology, in fact it will reuse it. The battery is recharged using the recycled energy. In effect less C02 emissions are released along with your car having better fuel efficiency.
Electric Power Steering
The steering system is designed in such a way that energy is only used when the wheel is actually turned, and not when the car is driving straight. This naturally reduces fuel consumption.
Optimum shift indicator
This is a recommendation system built within the car to suggest when to change gears. Following the indicator will give great fuel efficiency as the car will not over rev.
The bodywork as well as the engine is both made of lighter materials. This naturally reduces the power needed for the car to drive forward, thus reducing carbon emissions and fuel consumption. The car also much more responsive and the handling of the vehicle is also greatly improved.
Reduced rolling resistance tyres
Using this technology a lot less friction is caused between the tyres and road. This effectively brings about better fuel efficiency and allows the car to emit less C02 emissions.
Engine oil and transmission fluid are designed to flow with more efficiency throughout the car, working together. Less fuel consumption and C02 emissions are achieved, along with a smoother drive.
Vents are closed automatically to help the engine perform better, quicker from the beginning of journeys and for to be more fuel efficient. Instead of the car wasting fuel to power the engine, vents are opened and air is let in. This naturally reduces the need for fuel to be used. The vents however will be open to cool the car’s engine components when needed.
