Increased electric operation and potency interjection to cutting-edge battery technology: a new BMW X1 xDrive25Le for a Chinese market.

Munich/Shenyang. At Auto Shanghai 2019, BMW
Brilliance Automotive presents a new book of a BMW
X1 xDrive25Le. Thanks to cutting-edge battery technology, a compact
Sports Activity Vehicle (SAV) grown exclusively for a Chinese
automotive marketplace with extended wheelbase and plug-in expostulate now
achieves an electrically powered operation of adult to 110 kilometres*. The
potency of a new BMW X1 xDrive25Le has also been further
increased. Its total fuel expenditure is now some 72 per cent lower
than before. Hallmark pushing pleasure is also ensured by the
hybrid-specific chronicle of a intelligent all-wheel expostulate complement BMW
xDrive as good as an endless operation of customary apparatus to enhance
comfort and safety. The new BMW X1 xDrive25Le is constructed during BMW
Brilliance Automotive’s Tiexi plant in Shenyang, China.

With a poignant boost in operation and efficiency, a further
grown plug-in hybrid indication has all it takes to continue its
success story on a Chinese automotive market. In 2018 the
BMW X1 xDrive25Le was China’s top-selling plug-in hybrid car in
a reward SUV segment. The BMW X1 xDrive25Le was recognised of
generally to accommodate a needs and preferences of Chinese customers,
while in Europe a BMW 225xe Active Tourer (combined fuel
consumption: 1.9 l/100 km; total CO2 emissions:
43 g/km**) ideally covers a shred of plug-in hybrid compact
models with a all-round qualities and high turn of space functionality.

The opposite operation of models consolidates a BMW Group’s position as
a colonize and marketplace personality in a margin of electrically powered
automobiles. With a marketplace share of some-more than 8 per cent, a company
leads a worldwide ranking of determined reward providers of
vehicles that are quite electrically powered or run on plug-in hybrid
systems. In 2018 a BMW Group was a marketplace personality in a premium
shred of electrified vehicles in both Germany and in China.

The association sole some-more than 140,000 plug-in hybrid and electrically
powered vehicles sole worldwide – an boost of 38.4 per cent as
compared to a before year. As one of a 4 future-oriented ACES
areas of movement (Autonomous, Connected, Electrified and
Services/Shared), electromobility is one of a pivotal elements of the
BMW Group’s plan NUMBER ONE NEXT. During a residue of
2019 a operation of BMW models with electrified expostulate will be expanded
to embody a plug-in hybrid models of a new BMW 7 Series (combined
fuel consumption: 2.6 – 2.1 l/100 km; total appetite consumption:
16.3 – 15.1 kWh/100 km; total CO2 emissions:
59 – 48 g/km**), a new BMW 330e Sedan (combined fuel consumption:
1.7 l/100 km; total CO2 emissions: 39 g/km**), a new
BMW X5 xDrive45e (combined fuel consumption: 2.1 l/100 km; combined
CO2 emissions: 49 g/km*) and a new BMW X3 xDrive30e
(combined fuel consumption: 2.4 l/100 km; total CO2
emissions: 56 g/km**). In addition, a really latest battery cell
record provides a boost in terms of operation and potency for the
BMW 530e (combined fuel consumption: 1.7 l/100 km; combined
CO2 emissions: 38 g/km**) and a BMW 225xe Active Tourer.

State-of-the-art battery record with a high turn of
appetite density.

The boost in operation by 83 per cent as compared to a predecessor
indication and a rebate in fuel expenditure by 72 per cent to
1.3 litres per 100 kilometres* were done probable by a really latest
advances in a area of battery dungeon technology. The new
BMW X1 xDrive25Le facilities a lithium-ion high-voltage battery, with
battery cells constructed exclusively formed on specifications tangible by
a BMW Group. The serve boost in battery ability was a result
of sound investigate and growth work as good as tighten cooperation
with a battery dungeon manufacturer. In a new battery cells, the
ratio of nickel, cobalt and manganese in a anode element is
8 : 1 : 1. The stretched nickel share increases appetite density, while
a rebate in a cobalt member means that reduction singular earth
element is required. Despite a fact that a pattern is still
compact, a weight of a battery – that is positioned during a really low
indicate in a car building – is usually increasing by 2.5 kilograms. Like
a car as a whole, a high-voltage battery is made at
a Shenyang site.

The plug-in hybrid complement of a new BMW X1 xDrive25Le comprises a
1.5-litre 3-cylinder petrol engine with BMW TwinPower Turbo Technology
pushing a front wheels, with an electric engine that delivers its
appetite to a back wheels. Together they beget a complement outlay of
170 kW/231 hp along with a limit complement torque of 382 Nm. Fitted
with a 6-speed Steptronic transmission, a BMW X1 xDrive25Le
accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in 7.4 seconds.

The on-going expostulate record and versatile pushing properties of
a new BMW X1 xDrive25Le are total with unusually generous
interior space and quite high-quality customary equipment. A
high grade of pushing pleasure, safety, comfort and oppulance are
ensured by such facilities as a vast scenery roof, a BMW navigation
complement with 10.25-inch touchscreen and healthy voice recognition, LED
headlights and a Parking Assistant.

All figures
relating to pushing performance, consumption, emissions and
operation are provisional.

 

Fuel consumption, CO2 glimmer total and power
expenditure were totalled regulating a methods required
according to Regulation VO (EC) 2007/715 as amended. The
total are distributed regulating a car propitious with basic
apparatus in Germany, a ranges settled take into account
differences in comparison circle and tyre sizes as good as the
discretionary equipment. They might change during configuration.

*Fuel expenditure total are provisional, formed on a EU
exam cycle and might change depending on a tyre format specified.

The total noted * have already been distributed formed on
a new WLTP exam cycle and blending to NEDC for comparison
purposes. In these vehicles, opposite total than those
published here might request for a comment of taxes and
other vehicle-related duties that are (also) formed on
CO2 emissions.
