BMW EfficientDynamics in the BMW 2 Series Coupé.

The new 2 Series Coupé can’t get enough: more performance, more sportiness, more to amaze. But it’s also the master of superlatives when it comes to less: less consumption and fewer emissions. Whether in ECO PRO Mode, Brake Energy Regeneration or Automatic Start/Stop function, the coupé knows how to make expert use of the intelligent BMW EfficientDynamics measures. And thanks to its aerodynamic design, the BMW 2 Series Coupé cuts a very fine figure while at it.


ECO PRO Mode helps drivers reduce their fuel consumption by up to 20 percent, depending on their driving style – according to an internal BMW fuel consumption study.


The additional function, coasting, delivers even more savings potential. The coasting function disconnects the drive train from the engine, causing the vehicle to "coast" without additional power input. This occurs as soon as the driver takes his or her foot off the accelerator between the speeds of 50 and 160 km/h without braking.


The entire vehicle design is a testament to the BMW EfficientDynamics philosophy. Its streamlined silhouette makes it incredibly aerodynamic.


The front apron is a prominent design feature that embodies the BMW EfficientDynamics philosophy. The integrated Air Curtain channels air through two vertical air inlets and along the front wheel arches. The accelerated air flow creates a kind of "curtain" on the outer side of the wheels. These innovative technologies reduce turbulence and air resistance, which in turn significantly reduces fuel consumption.


The flat undercarriage cover, which also shields the engine compartment and rear axle, is an additional detail that greatly improves the car's aerodynamics. These new trim elements are not only highly advantageous in terms of aerodynamics: they also improve sound insulation and provide greater protection from rust.


The Auto Start-Stop function makes sure that fuel is only used when the car is actually driving.


While waiting at traffic lights or in stop-and-go traffic, the Auto Start-Stop function saves fuel by switching off the engine as soon as the driver brakes to a complete standstill.


A signal in the Info Display indicates that the Auto Stop-Start function is active. As soon as the driver takes his foot off the brake, the engine immediately switches itself back on.


The Auto Start-Stop function never compromises driving comfort and safety, as it remains inactive if the engine has not reached its ideal running temperature, the interior has not yet been sufficiently cooled, if the battery level is too low or if you are turning the steering wheel. A central control unit restarts the engine if required, even when the car is at a standstill – for example, if the car starts to roll forward or if the windscreen becomes foggy. The Auto Start-Stop function can be switched off at any time with the push of a button.


Every time you brake, kinetic energy is generated, and until recently, this energy has gone unused.


Brake Energy Regeneration takes advantage of this long-overlooked potential. It harnesses the coasting energy that is generated whenever the driver brakes or takes their foot off the accelerator and turns it into electricity.


This electricity is then used to charge the car battery. The intelligent energy management system means that the alternator no longer needs to run permanently, which reduces the strain on the generator. The result is reduced fuel consumption and increased performance – classic BMW EfficientDynamics.


The 8-speed automatic transmission sets a new benchmark in terms of dynamic performance and efficiency and is a key element of BMW EfficientDynamics.


The particularly finely tuned gradation of the gears allows optimum power delivery – from low through to high speeds. This reduces fuel consumption significantly, while enabling the driver to enjoy even more sporty flair and dynamic performance. At high speeds in particular, the additional gears reduce engine speed and therefore both fuel consumption and engine noise.


The converter clutch is a contributing factor here – even if it is changed into manual shift mode. In combination with the fast engine speed transitions and the precise transmission tuning, it provides a very high level of shift comfort and reduces noise considerably.
