BMW I Performance

BMW Performance At Edmonton BMW

Electric vehicles are increasing in popularity as automotive consumers turn to alternate forms of transportation. Though an all-electric vehicle may not be for everyone, it is an option that many have considered. An all-electric is not the only plug-in option available in the automotive marketplace. At Edmonton BMW, located at 7450 Roper Rd NW, Edmonton, Alberta experience has always been a driving force in applying advanced automotive concepts. The development of the BMW iPerformance and subsequently, BMW plug-in hybrids has allowed this influence to evolve and become valuable. The system consists of a BMW powered combustion engine paired with powerful electric motors. In this situation, our clients in St. Albert, Sherwood Park, Beaumont, Leduc, Spruce Grove, Devon, Stony Plain, and Fort Saskatchewan, Alberta, never miss out on typical BMW Performance.

Reduce Emissions, Enjoy the Drive, Save the Planet

BMW iPerformance vehicles utilize BMW eDrive. An electric drivetrain that is able to cover short and medium distances with a state-of-the-art electric motor, lithium-ion battery and intelligent energy management. A TwinPower Turbo combustion engine activates when it is needed. This engine works in perfect harmony with the electric motors. The conventional drive offers the range, while the electric drive helps to provide zero-emission driving in urban areas. iPerformance is available on the BMW 330e Sedan, BMW 530e, and BMW 740Le xDrive. More technology apart of iPerformance can be found below:

Auto eDrive

  • A selectable mode that activates an intelligent energy management system that determines the most efficient combination of combustion engine and electric motor. It monitors driving speed and battery charge level to make the appropriate choice.

Max eDrive

  • Depending on the model, Max eDrive allows the vehicle to travel at a speed of up to 140 km/h purely electric. If the driver requires max acceleration, the combustion engine automatically engages.

Save Battery

  • When initiated, this mode utilizes the combustion engine to either efficiently charge the battery or keep its level maintained. This allows the driver to save batter capacity for when pure electric operation is more beneficial.
