BMW TWINPOWER TURBO PETROL ENGINES.
The innovative 3-cylinder petrol engine with its exceptional smoothness, the 4-cylinder petrol engine and the BMW TwinPower Turbo inline 6-cylinder petrol engine, multiple winner of the “Engine of the Year Award” – they all set new standards. In the latest generation, the BMW EfficientDynamics engine family proves to be more economical, lower on emissions and more powerful than their predecessors.
In order to increase efficiency and dynamics, this innovative package – a milestone in the BMW EfficientDynamics strategy – combines the latest injection technology and Valvetronic fully variable valve control including double-VANOS with innovative turbocharger technology. The result is an especially efficient drive system that impressively illustrates the engine expertise of BMW.
TWO DISCIPLINES. ONE CHAMPION.
BMW M4 Coupé:
Fuel consumption (combined) in l/100 km: 8.8 [8.3]
CO2 emissions (combined) in g/km: 204 
TWO DISCIPLINES. ONE CHAMPION.
Even better performance, even lower consumption: the M TwinPower Turbo inline 6-cylinder petrol engine.
BMW TWINPOWER TURBO DIESEL ENGINES.
Reflected in the BMW Twin Power Turbo diesel engines is the systematic implementation of the BMW EfficientDynamics principle: combining top values in economy, power yield and running characteristics with low fuel consumption. There is no doubt about their efficiency and dynamics. Yet at the same time, the BMW TwinPower Turbo 3-cylinder diesel engines as ideal entry-level engines, the innovative BMW TwinPower Turbo 4-cylinder diesel engines and the especially powerful BMW TwinPower Turbo inline 6-cylinder diesel engines perform their work with remarkably low emissions and little friction. Maximum driving fun is therefore guaranteed. The diesel power units with the aluminium lightweight construction of the BMW EfficientDynamics engine family have turbocharging with variable turbine geometry. Fuel injection is the responsibility of the latest-generation CommonRail direct injection.
8-SPEED STEPTRONIC SPORT TRANSMISSION.
The 8-speed Steptronic Sport transmission allows a significantly higher level of gear-changing and driving comfort thanks to the smaller gear ratios and minimised rev intervals. This combines maximum comfort with the sensation of impressive dynamics and reduced fuel consumption. And with Launch Control, your BMW will impress from the word go, even when it’s standing still. The keyword: maximum acceleration. One short press of the DSC button, slide the gear lever into ‘S’, set the brakes and activate the kick-down function with the accelerator – now release the brakes and find out what torque means.
From 0 to 100 in 4.8 seconds.
BMW BluePerformance Technologies reduce the nitrogen oxide (NOx) produced by the diesel engine to a minimum. In addition to the diesel particle filter and NOx catalytic converter, in some models a SCR catalytic converter (SCR = Selective Catalytic Reduction) with AdBlue® injection is integrated. These technologies further optimise the emissions of the diesel engine.

FUEL CONSUMPTION AND CO2 EMISSIONS.
Fuel consumption and CO2 emissions for the BMW i8 (3):
Combined fuel consumption in l/100 km: 1.9
Combined CO2 emissions in g/km: 42
Combined electricity consumption in kWh/100 km: 14.0
Figures outside brackets refer to the basic model with transmission as per the basic equipment; figures in brackets to the model with optionally available transmission (see special equipment).
The values of fuel consumptions, CO2 emissions and energy consumptions shown were determined according to the European Regulation (EC) 715/2007 in the version applicable at the time of type approval. The figures refer to a vehicle with basic configuration in Germany and the range shown considers optional equipment and the different size of wheels and tires available on the selected model.
(1) The values are applicable until 15.04.2018. Please check availability with your BMW dealer.
The values of the vehicles labeled with (3), are already based on the new WLTP regulation and are translated back into NEDC-equivalent values in order to ensure the comparison between the vehicles. [With respect to these vehicles, for vehicle related taxes or other duties based (at least inter alia) on CO2-emissions the CO2 values may differ to the values stated here.]
The CO2 efficiency specifications are determined according to Directive 1999/94/EC and the European Regulation in its current version applicable. The values shown are based on the fuel consumption, CO2 values and energy consumptions according to the NEDC cycle for the classification.
For further information about the official fuel consumption and the specific CO2 emission of new passenger cars can be taken out of the „handbook of fuel consumption, the CO2 emission and power consumption of new passenger cars“, which is available at all selling points and at https://www.dat.de/angebote/verlagsprodukte/leitfaden-kraftstoffverbrauch.html.
