MAXIMISING THE DRIVING PLEASURE. BMW has an unrivaled reputation for delivering class-leading technology. The current generation of petrol engines employs the following innovations to deliver maximum driving pleasure.

HIGH PRECISION DIRECT INJECTION. By using the full amount of energy from every drop of fuel, this petrol direct injection system deliver slower consumption, even at higher engine revs.

VALVETRONIC. In 2001, BMW was the first manufacturer to harness this innovative technology that maximises the oxygen supply to each cylinder and allows the engine to breathe efficiently

DOUBLE VANOS. By optimising the fuel exchange, Double VANOS guarantees a responsive performance and higher torque, even at low revs and engine speeds.

Building on the BMW 1602 of the 1970s, we have been developing electric automotive solutions for over four decades. The BMW iPerformance range combines a powerful petrol engine with an electric motor that is powered by a lithium-ion battery, providing an exceptional all-electric driving range with the flexibility of a combustion engine, offering the best of both worlds.

BMW iPerformance models achieve CO2 emissions from just 44g/km, and combined fuel economies of up to 148mpg.
