Engine Manufacturing Performance
With the company’s rich heritage in engine manufacturing, BMW continues this tradition for each of their vehicles with the M Performance line of automobiles. Compared to Mercedes Benz’s AMG line, BMW vastly surpasses with incredible power under the hood. Between the BMW 6 Series and Mercedes Benz AMG C 63, the former performs with 100 horsepower more than its competition with a total of 600-hp. Additionally, most M Performance BMW’s will often sport a manual transmission standard for better control over the vehicle’s speed. Nevertheless, BMWs prevails with delivering top-of-the-line performance for any luxury vehicle in its class.
Not only are BMW’s manufactured for performance, but their designed that way as well. BMW cars are built with lighter materials than the MB counterparts, which helps them handle corners better. Typically, Mercedes Benz will often try to overcome their performance issues by manufacturing bigger engines to put in their models. While it helps with the Mercedes Benz’s power and veracity, this brings up a second advantage of BMW which is fuel economy. Because of the additional weight from the body and the engines, Mercedes Benz vehicles will usually consumer more fuel than their counterparts. The differences may vary between different models, but BMW´s overall have the superior fuel economy attached to their vehicles.
Advancements in Electric Vehicles
Not only ahs BMW made advancements in engineering traditional gasoline engine, but they’ve done so with their Electric Vehicles (EV) and Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicles (PHEV) as well. The BMW i line is the company’s most advanced line of EVs and PHEVs that doesn’t compromise performance in any way. For example, the BMW i8 still manages to perform with a horsepower of 228-hp with its smart combination of electric and gas-powered hybrid engine. Meanwhile, Mercedes Benz hasn’t released any electric vehicles for commercial release to date. BMW has always stayed ahead of the pack with all its decades of history in engine manufacturing, and manages to exceed the expectations its made for themselves.
