MORE POWER. LESS WEIGHT.

BMW EfficientLightweight.

BMW EfficientLightweight is a showcase example of how efficient driving and dynamic driving combine perfectly. Thanks to the use of especially lightweight and stiff materials − such as carbon in the passenger cell, aluminium in the chassis, high-strength steel in the body or ultra-modern magnesium alloys in the engine − fuel consumption is reduced while, at the same time, driving performance and dynamics are improved.

From rear axle to aluminium front apron, from the M light alloy wheels to the CFRP roof, the BMW M4 Coupé provides an example of how you can discover the diversity of BMW EfficientLightweight.

Combined fuel consumption in l/100 km: 8.8 [8.3]
Combined CO2 emissions in g/km: 204 [194]

HIGH STIFFNESS AND SAFETY: THE CARBON PASSENGER CELL.

HIGH STIFFNESS AND SAFETY: THE CARBON PASSENGER CELL.

BMW i is revolutionising automotive engineering with the first series-produced passenger cells made of carbon − thereby setting new standards in lightweight construction. Thanks to its high strength, the material offers passengers the best possible protection in accidents, yet is still light enough to balance out the additional weight of the HV battery. The result is greater safety combined with a generous and comfortable level of spaciousness which simultaneously saves weight – and thus further increases dynamics.

The BMW i3 and BMW i8 are the first vehicles in which the high-tech material carbon has been used for large-scale series production. For a long time, the use of carbon was limited because it had to be produced manually. Today, the BMW Group produces the carbon fibres and carbon fibre plates itself, which makes large-scale series production possible.

Fuel consumption and CO2 emissions.

The fuel consumption given in km/litre and the CO2 emission given in g/km represent average estimated values which were obtained from tests under controlled laboratory environment. The CO2 emissions displayed may differ depending on which options are selected for the vehicles. Please consult your retailer for further information on the CO2 emissions. This information has been calculated with due care and attention but it is general in nature and assumptions have been made on the options chosen by a customer. BMW Thailand accepts no liability for any errors of the fuel consumption nor CO2 emissions values given and reserves the right to amend these specifications without notice.
