More from less - the future of BMW

FUTURE OF BMW: The BMW Vision Car hosts the full range of EfficientDynamics technologies, many of which are in new BMW models.


BMW EfficientDynamics is not just a vision of the future. It's an intuitive package of intelligent technologies that substantially reduces fuel consumption and emissions while, at the same time, considerably increasing driving pleasure.

This means your driving experience is more efficient, down to the smallest detail, while giving you the performance that you've come to expect from BMW.

Today, a whole range of our new models have the standard-feature Brake Energy Regeneration, the Auto Start/Stop function, and many other intelligent solutions to lower fuel consumption and carbon dioxide emissions.

We would not, however, be BMW if we focused solely on greater efficiency: above all, we aim to provide driving pleasure and high performance. Now and in the future.

Proving that the essence of BMW EfficientDynamics is leading the way in a low-carbon future, BMW was awarded the prestigious honour of Dow Jones Sustainability Index Leader for a seventh consecutive year. This is the most influential stock index for sustainability-driven companies worldwide. This award confirms that, since 2005, the BMW Group has been the world's most sustainable premium automobile manufacturer.

Popular features will now come standard on many BMW models. These include the Auto Start/Stop function which automatically switches off the engine when the car is at a standstill, then restarts it as soon as you take off, as well as Brake Energy Regeneration which captures kinetic energy into the BMW battery.

All of this and many more innovative technologies from BMW EfficientDynamics are available standard with a wide range of our new models.
