Along with the individual driver's style affecting the energy consumption this can also be influenced by one of three driving modes that iPerformance offers.
AUTO eDRIVE mode uses the intelligence of the EfficientDynamics system within the BMW to determine the most efficient combination or electric and engine, taking into account the battery charge status and the driving speed.
MAX eDRIVE mode enables the driver to enjoy zero emissions, solely using electric driving. The combustion engine will switch on automatically if the acceleration potential has been exhausted or at high speeds.
SAVE BATTERY/ BATTERY CONTROL - If the battery charging status is low, in order for the driver to save the battery capacity for electric driving only, SAVE BATTERY/BATTERY CONTROL mode will enable it to be charged by the engine or allow the charging status to be maintained.
