                    IDEALS ARE FORMED FROM IDEAS.
                     Beauty, they say, is in the eyes of the beholder. The beauty of a BMW is based on ideas. In the case of the BMW  Series Saloon, the designers’ idea
                     was to re-invent dynamism, using distinctive and elegant lines. They designed an elongated front section, which suggests power while helping to
                     lower fuel consumption. The interior design is both harmonious and dynamically charged. Find out more about dynamism in its most beautiful form:

BMW Ef cientDynamics is an umbrella term for a range of technologies used to lower fuel consumption and enhance
driving pleasure at the same time. Everything in the BMW Series Saloon is designed for maximum ef ciency, a virtue that
comes as standard in every BMW. This includes pioneering engine technology and aerodynamics. Even the surplus kinetic
energy of the car that becomes available when you lift your foot off the accelerator or step on the brake is not wasted: thanks
to Brake Energy Regeneration, it is converted into electricity and fed into the battery. This means less work to do for the
engine, with a corresponding fuel saving. Just one feature of many that contribute to making driving pleasure more
energy-ef cient than ever before.

                         Engines drive cars. That’s what the intellect tells us. But the heart
                         knows that a BMW engine does much more than just power a car.
                         It’s an alchemist. The engines in the BMW Series Saloon turn
                         energy into emotion. Torque into a quickening pulse. Re nement
                         into relaxation. Pulling power into exhilaration. The immediate, joyful
                         power delivery of the BMW Series Saloon engines converts a
                         minimum of fuel into a maximum of driving pleasure.

                         The innovative BMW ConnectedDrive systems* are all about making life easy. When parking, for example, even tight parking spaces are
                         no problem to get into. The optional Park Assistant measures the size of the parking spot and automatically steers the car into it, at the
                         press of a button – all you have to do is operate the accelerator and brake pedals. The optional Surround View provides further assistance: this
                         system helps you see what you need to see when things get tight. It’s just another way in which BMW ConnectedDrive makes driving easier.

BMW was one of the rst manufacturers to pursue the goal of ef cient drive technologies, as a part of our multiple award-winning sustainability
strategy. BMW Ef cientDynamics, included as standard, is a comprehensive, multi-award-winning technology package designed to reduce fuel
consumption and emissions – while simultaneously enhancing dynamic performance. With it, the BMW Group has been able to reduce the CO
emissions of its European new-vehicle eet by about % since         .   models currently produce less than       g of CO per kilometre, and
more than two million vehicles equipped with Ef cient Dynamics have been delivered to customers. The BMW Group intends to achieve a further
   % reduction in CO emissions by        .

Different paths to the same destination: unmistakable BMW driving pleasure. Under the umbrella of the BMW Ef cientDynamics project, BMW is
continuously developing innovative systems that will bring us closer to the goal of emission-free mobility in the long term. This BMW initiative for more
driving pleasure is based on several pillars:

Technology package. The optimisation of vehicles powered by conventional diesel and petrol engines continues apace. A comprehensive
technology package enables the reduction of fuel consumption and emissions, while at the same time increasing power output and driving
enjoyment. These advances are based on innovations such as BMW TwinPower Turbo technology, Brake Energy Regeneration, air vent control,
and many others.

The BMW Group has already lowered the CO output of its European new-vehicle
 eet by      per cent over the period from        to      . The multi-award-winning
BMW Ef cientDynamics technology package is what has made this possible. This is
not just a single feature, but a whole package of interconnected technologies. They all
serve to lower fuel consumption and CO emissions, while enhancing driving enjoyment.

The BMW           d Ef cientDynamics Edition represents another milestone in this
sustainability strategy. In addition to the complete BMW Ef cientDynamics package,
innovative aluminium rims (shown on the right) optimise the vehicle’s aerodynamics,
enabling impressive fuel ef ciency, with an average consumption of . litres per        km,
and       g/km . A changed engine set-up, an adjusted nal drive ratio, tyres with reduced
rolling-resistance and an adjusted Optimum Shift Indicator enable these values without
incurring any loss in driving pleasure. On the contrary: the BMW        d Ef cientDynamics
Edition with its      kW (     hp) of power delivers an exhilarating drive.
