How BMW EfficientDynamics Helps to Save Fuel

EffcientDynamics is the latest technology adopted in some of BMW models like 1 series, 3 series and 5 series. This technology aims to deliver more fuel efficiency and eco friendliness without comprising the on the driving experience.

Following are the fuel saving features of EffcientDynamics in BMW

Auto start stop

This saves plenty of fuel and emissions from the car being released. When cars are idle the car is switched off so energy is saved. The engine is able to be turned on simply by pressing down on the clutch. Brake energy regeneration Applying the brakes will not waste energy with this technology; in fact it will reuse it. The battery is recharged using the recycled energy. In effect less C02 emissions are released along with your car having better fuel efficiency.

Electric Power Steering

The steering system is designed in such a way that energy is only used when the wheel is actually turned, and not when the car is driving straight. This naturally reduces fuel consumption. Optimum shift indicator This is a recommendation system built within the car to suggest when to change gears. Following the indicator will give great fuel efficiency as the car will not over rev.

Lightweight engineering

The bodywork as well as the engine is both made of lighter materials. This naturally reduces the power needed for the car to drive forward, thus reducing carbon emissions and fuel consumption. The car also much more responsive and has improved handling.

Reduced rolling resistance tyres

Using this technology a lot less friction is caused between the tyres and road. This effectively brings about better fuel efficiency and allows the car to emit less C02 emissions.

Low-friction fluids

Engine oil and transmission fluid are designed to flow with more efficiency throughout the car, working together. Less fuel consumption and C02 emissions are achieved, along with a smoother drive.

Active aerodynamics

Vents are closed automatically to help the engine perform better, quicker from the beginning of journeys and for to be more fuel efficient. Instead of the car wasting fuel to power the engine, vents are opened and air is let in. This naturally reduces the need for fuel to be used. The vents however will be open to cool the car’s engine components when needed.

Efficientdynamics is an excellent example of BMW’s commitment to greener environment and big step toward the company’s vision of ’emission free driving. Servicing BMW as per the manufacturer schedule is also essential for achieving the maximum fuel efficiency.
