Munich / Stuttgart. Following a altogether feat and
dual difficulty wins in final year’s International Engine of a Year Awards,
a expostulate complement powering a BMW i8 has once again triumphed in its
difficulty – a 1.4-litre to 1.8-litre banishment difficulty – in this
year’s competition. The BMW Group’s success in a International
Engine of a Year Awards 2016 provides serve justification of the
opening intensity of a Efficient Dynamics record package,
that given 2007 has enabled a continual encouragement of driving
pleasure while during a same time slicing fuel expenditure and emissions.

The International Engine of a Year Awards were launched in 1999,
given when a sum of 67 difficulty and altogether wins have left to power
units grown for BMW models. Each year an consultant row of judges,
this time comprising 63 motoring reporters from 31 countries,
selects a best examples in countless categories. The prize-winners
were presented with their awards on Wednesday, 1 June 2016 opposite the
backdrop of a Engine Expo trade satisfactory in Stuttgart.

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.

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 total 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.

CO2 glimmer values and a electric energy expenditure of new
newcomer cars is enclosed in a following guideline: “Leitfaden über
