It enables – in conjunction with the automatic tailgate operation –contactless opening of the tailgate. A quick, directed wave of the foot under the rear bumper allows the tailgate to be opened via sensor.
It then unlocks and swings open on its own. Sensors installed at different heights in the rear bumper detect the wave of the foot and open the luggage compartment. This innovative feature from BMW ConnectedDrive makes opening and loading the luggage compartment more convenient. Access is only granted when the system also detects the presence of an authorised car key.
