With its combination of BMW eDrive and a BMW TwinPower Turbo engine, the BMW 225xe Active Tourer offers both an electric driving experience and unlimited mobility. The intelligent interplay between both drive systems gives rise to the electrical xDrive. This system is regulated automatically and offers the best-possible traction and agility in every situation – with optimised consumption and CO2 emissions of 2.1 to 2.0 l/100 km and 49 to 46 g/km respectively.
Versatility meets cost-effectiveness meets driving pleasure: The BMW 225xe Active Tourer combines tried-and-tested flexibility and outstanding fuel consumption with typical BMW driving dynamics. Thanks to BMW eDrive technology from BMW EfficientDynamics, a range of up to 41 kilometres in the purely electric mode is possible – without any local emissions and without using a drop of fuel.
A space-saving design is used to accommodate the eDrive propulsion components – without any compromises in comfort, functionality or roominess. On the outside, the vehicle differs from the conventionally-powered model thanks to an LED light ring on the charging port as well as the “eDrive” lettering at the c-pillars, which indicates the vehicle’s innovative drive technology. In the interior, the “eDrive” lettering can be found on the door sills, the driving modes switch, the gear knob and in the instrument cluster, where it remains visible for the entire journey.
The new BMW TwinPower Turbo 3-cylinder petrol engine features agile power delivery, excellent responsiveness even at low engine speeds, an awe-inspiring sound and tremendous efficiency. Deployed in conjunction with an electric motor in the plug-in hybrid, it reveals itself as a surprisingly powerful drive unit. The vehicle's drive primarily consists of a combustion engine that powers the front wheels, along with an electric motor on the rear axle. Both of these can power the vehicle either individually or together.
Intelligent energy management is one of the main pillars of the BMW eDrive concept. This system coordinates the interaction of all BMW drive components with the electric motor in order to combine the best possible efficiency with great driving dynamics, and to increase the electric range.
The eDrive button allows the driver to choose between three electric drive modes: the standard AUTO eDRIVE mode, the purely electric MAX eDRIVE mode and the SAVE BATTERY mode, which maintains the charging status at a constant level.
Whether at a conventional household power socket or using the BMW i Wallbox from the comprehensive range of 360° ELECTRIC products and services – charging the high-voltage battery couldn’t be easier. You can top up while you’re out and about at one of the many ChargeNow public charging stations.
