And joy thinks ahead: the BMW Concept 5 Series ActiveHybrid is able to develop its own strategies for efficient driving and decides for itself when it is necessary to use which type of engine. Based on navigation data for example, the intelligent energy management system determines the distance to your destination and uses this information to determine the best times to switch off the combustion engine. This enables you to cover as many kilometres as possible using the electric motor without producing any emissions. Data from the onboard systems, such as comfort functions and even the topographical situation, are also taken into consideration when compiling the energy saving strategy. This ensures the BMW Concept 5 Series ActiveHybrid is informed about every incline and slope before you start your journey and can use this information from the moment you set off to ensure optimum use of the different hybrid engine modes.
