More versatile and fit than ever: marketplace launch of a new BMW 225xe Active Tourer.

Munich. Recent advances in battery dungeon technology
for BMW plug-in hybrid models are fluctuating a capabilities in terms
of locally emissions-free pushing pleasure – both in a city and
beyond. The new battery era in a BMW 225xe Active Tourer
increases a electrically powered operation of a civic all-rounder by
some-more than 25 per cent to between 55 and 57 kilometres*. The efficiency
of a plug-in hybrid expostulate has also been serve optimised. The new
BMW 225xe Active Tourer, that henceforth distributes a appetite of
a explosion engine and electric engine to all 4 wheels around a
hybrid-specific all-wheel expostulate complement as needed, now has an average
fuel expenditure of 2.1 to 1.9 litres per 100 kilometres* – a
rebate of some-more than 15 per cent. This brings a relevant
CO2 total down to between 47 and 42 grams per kilometre*,
with total appetite expenditure total down to between 14.2 and 13.5
kWh per 100 kilometres*.

The poignant boost in electric operation is due to a enlarged
storage ability of a lithium-ion battery in a new BMW 225xe
Active Tourer. While maintaining a same measure as before, the
latest-generation high-voltage battery now has a sum appetite content
that has been increasing from 7.7 to 10.0 kWh. It can be charged at
compulsory domicile sockets regulating a standard-equipment charging
cable. The battery can be entirely charged in around 5 hours in this
way. Using a BMW i Wallbox, a applicable charging operation takes less
than 3:15 hours. The charging hollow is located underneath a apart flap
on a front left side wall of a car. The high-voltage battery is
located underneath a back chair to save space, so a flexibility and
ride capabilities of a BMW 2 Series Active Tourer are only
somewhat singular as compared to a conventionally powered model
variants. The luggage cell volume in a new BMW 225xe Active
Tourer is not limited by a hybrid expostulate in a essentially used
area and amounts to 400 litres. With a customary separate of 40 : 20 : 40,
a folding backrests capacitate this to be increasing to 1 350 litres as required.

The plug-in hybrid expostulate in a new BMW 225xe Active Tourer ensures
locally emissions-free pushing in a city and beyond, in further to
total bearing for long-distance travel. It consists of a
1.5-litre 3-cylinder petrol engine with BMW TwinPower Turbo Technology
and 100 kW/136 hp, with a appetite transmitted to a front wheels via
a 6-speed Steptronic transmission, and also a 65 kW/88 hp electric
engine that drives a back axle. The appetite of a dual units adds adult to
a complement outlay of 165 kW/224 hp, with a limit complement torque of 385
Newton metres. The cleverly tranquil communication between the
dual appetite units creates a hybrid-specific all-wheel expostulate complement that
ensures optimised traction, pushing fortitude and lively in a new
BMW 225xe Active Tourer – even in inauspicious continue and highway conditions.
The fast response of a system, a ideal spindle bucket placement and
a rarely extemporaneous appetite smoothness of a electric engine behaving on
a back wheels capacitate appetite smoothness to be ideally blending to the
conditions on a highway during all times. This creates for a turn of safety,
comfort and dynamics that is superb within a BMW 225xe Active
Tourer segment.

The hybrid indication accelerates from delay to 100 km/h in 6.7
seconds. In addition, a electric boost supposing by a expostulate system
ensures additional reserve pot and heated sporty aptitude when
overtaking on nation roads, for example. The tip speed of a new BMW
225xe Active Tourer is 202 km/h. In quite electric pushing mode, it
can strech speeds of adult to 130 km/h.

The anticipatory appetite government complement for a expostulate complement in the
new BMW 225xe Active Tourer ensures limit potency and driving
pleasure by regulating navigation information to control a handling mode, for
example, ensuring a track form is taken into comment when
navigation superintendence is activated. In addition, a motorist is not only
means to activate a SPORT, COMFORT and ECO PRO pushing experience
switch modes though also use a eDrive symbol on a centre console to
change a communication between a explosion engine and the
electric motor. In a AUTO eDRIVE customary setting, a system
ensures best communication between a dual appetite units in all
situations on a road. The MAX eDRIVE mode is accessible for purely
electric driving, while a SAVE BATTERY mode creates it probable to
say or boost a high-voltage battery’s assign turn during
transport so to have battery ability accessible for quite electrically
powered pushing after on – in an civic area, for example.

With a prolonged electrically powered operation and low CO2
emissions, a new BMW 225xe Active Tourer qualifies for reduced
association automobile taxation in Germany, depending on fittings. Only half the
sum list cost is used as a basement when calculating a monetary
advantage from private use of a association car.

The new BMW 225xe Active Tourer facilities acoustic pedestrian
insurance as customary (expected to be accessible for a M Sport model
from Nov 2019). When pushing electrically during speeds of adult to 30
km/h, an unmistakeable sound designed privately for electrified BMW
models is generated to warning other highway users to a coming car
but impairing a acoustic comfort of a automobile occupants. The
model-specific operation of customary apparatus also includes 17-inch alloy
wheels, a navigation system, 2-zone involuntary atmosphere conditioning and
auxiliary atmosphere conditioning. The interior can be pre-conditioned
remotely around BMW Connected regulating a smartphone. As an choice to
a simple version, a new BMW 225xe Active Tourer is accessible as an
Advantage model, Sport Line model, Luxury Line indication and M Sport
model. In addition, probably all a discretionary extras offering for the
BMW 2 Series Active Tourer are further accessible for a hybrid model.

BMW plug-in hybrid models offer an array of advantages in
bland use.

BMW’s plug-in hybrid expostulate systems already offer users a horde of
additional advantages over normal solutions:

  • Money-saving: Electric pushing in civic areas is cheaper than
    regulating petrol or diesel if a plug-in hybrid automobile is charged at
    home or during a workplace during low cost.
  • Interior always during a right temperature, even before we get in:
    auxiliary heating and auxiliary atmosphere conditioning are propitious as standard.
  • Braking is winning: The battery is charged underneath braking. In
    compulsory vehicles, braking generates usually feverishness and stop dust.
  • The best of both worlds: Plug-in variety yield electric driving
    pleasure in civic areas and exemplary BMW pushing pleasure over
    longer distances.
  • Smoothing a approach into a future: Because a plug-in hybrid can
    run emission-free, it is authorised to enter many low-emission zones,
    enjoys additional parking privileges and saves on fee charges.
  • Better peculiarity of life in cities: By pushing on electric power,
    users can actively minister to shortening emissions and traffic
    sound in cities.

New BMW 225xe Active Tourer has a smaller overall
CO2 footprint.

The “real” environmental impact of plug-in hybrid vehicles has been
questioned on occasion, generally in markets where a suit of
immature appetite used by a open appetite grid stays small. The BMW
Group conducted a full-cycle CO2 acceptance for a new
BMW 225xe Active Tourer – from tender element procurement, a supply
chain, prolongation and a use phase, all a approach to recycling.

This suggested a CO2 footprint of a new BMW 225xe
Active Tourer to be 33 percent smaller than that of a BMW 225xi
Active Tourer and 24 percent than that of a BMW 220xd Active Tourer
when using on normal European appetite in a use phase. When charging
a automobile with immature energy, a CO2 footprint is reduced by
as most as 56 percent (225xi) and 50 percent (220xd).
