BMW i once again wins International Engine of a Year Award.

Posted on 22. Jun, 2017 by in BMW Canada

Munich/Stuttgart. For a third year in a quarrel a expostulate system
powering a BMW i8 (fuel expenditure combined: 2.1 l/100 km [134.5
mpg imp]*; CO2 emissions combined: 49.0 g/km*) has triumphed in its
difficulty – a 1.4-litre to 1.8-litre banishment difficulty – during the
International Engine of a Year Awards. This endowment provides further
justification of a opening intensity of a Efficient Dynamics
record package, that given 2007 has enabled a continuous
encouragement of pushing pleasure while during a same time slicing fuel
expenditure and emissions.

The plug-in hybrid expostulate complement powering a BMW i8 combines the
opening of a sports automobile with a fuel economy of a distant smaller
model. The three-cylinder explosion engine in a BMW i8 develops
170 kW/231 hp and drives a back wheels, while a 96 kW/131 hp
electric engine draws a appetite from a lithium-ion battery, that can
be charged from a required domestic energy hollow and sends its
energy to a front axle. This bespoke plug-in hybrid system, developed
and constructed by a BMW Group, enables a operation of adult to 37 kilometres
(23 miles) in a EU exam cycle and a tip speed of 120 km/h (75 mph)
on electric energy alone, joined with a “glued-to-the-road” all-wheel
pushing knowledge headlined by absolute acceleration and a
dynamically-biased placement of energy by keenly taken corners.

* Fuel expenditure and CO2 sum were distributed formed on a EU
exam cycle.

The higher-output of a dual energy sources drives a back wheels and
uses a electric boost from a hybrid complement to broach hallmark BMW
pushing pleasure while during a same time charity groundbreaking levels
of efficiency. The scurry from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) takes just
4.4 seconds, nonetheless sum fuel expenditure – as distributed in a EU
exam cycle for plug-in hybrid vehicles – stands during 2.1 litres per
100 kilometres (134.5 mpg imp) and 11.9 kWh of electricity. This
equates to CO2 emissions of 49 grams per kilometre.

The International Engine of a Year Awards were launched in 1999,
given when a sum of 68 difficulty and altogether wins have left to power
units grown for BMW models. Each year an consultant row of judges,
this time comprising 58 motoring reporters from 31 countries,
selects a best examples in countless categories. The prize-winners
were presented with their awards on Wednesday, 21 June 2017 against
a backdrop of a Engine Expo trade satisfactory in Stuttgart.

Further information on central fuel expenditure figures, specific
CO2 glimmer values and a electric energy expenditure of new
newcomer cars is enclosed in a following guideline: “Leitfaden über
Kraftstoffverbrauch, die CO2-Emissionen und basement Stromverbrauch neuer
Personenkraftwagen” (Guideline for fuel consumption, CO2 emissions and
electric energy expenditure of new newcomer cars), that can be
performed from all dealerships, from Deutsche Automobil Treuhand GmbH

The BMW Group


With a 4 brands BMW, MINI, Rolls-Royce and BMW Motorrad, a BMW
Group is a world’s heading reward manufacturer of automobiles and
motorcycles and also provides reward financial and mobility services.
As a tellurian company, a BMW Group operates 31 prolongation and assembly
comforts in 14 countries and has a tellurian sales network in some-more than
140 countries.


In 2016, a BMW Group sole approximately 2.367 million cars and
145,000 motorcycles worldwide. The distinction before taxation was approximately
€ 9.67 billion on revenues amounting to € 94.16 billion. As of 31
Dec 2016, a BMW Group had a workforce of 124,729 employees.


The success of a BMW Group has always been formed on long-term
meditative and obliged action. The association has therefore established
ecological and amicable sustainability via a value chain,
extensive product shortcoming and a transparent joining to
conserving resources as an constituent partial of a strategy.
