BMW eDrive Technology

BMW’s eDrive technology combines an electrical motor, a new lithium-ion high-performance battery and intelligent energy management to give drivers an agile, exciting driving experience. The lithium-ion high-performance battery is a powerful technology that works in tandem with cooling system that keeps the battery at an optimal operating temperature. Keeping the temperature down increases performance and life expectancy. The newly-developed synchronous electric motor isn’t just efficient, it gives drivers enormous torque that will remain constant from acceleration to maximum speed. Interplay between intelligent energy management and efficient brake energy regeneration gives vehicles with eDrive technology a significantly increased driving range. The center of the eDrive technology is the lithium-ion battery; it has a longer life expectancy compared to other electric car batteries, and can be recharged wherever electricity is available. Convenient at-home charging can be completed with a regular 220 volt socket. When driven in purely electrical mode, eDrive vehicles are emission-free; the extended driving range makes it possible to cover most everyday distances with zero emissions locally.

BMW Concept X5 eDrive

For the first time, BMW eDrive and BMW xDrive have been united under one concept vehicle’s roof. The BMW Concept X5 eDrive is the first Sports Activity style vehicle from BMW to combine BMW xDrive, an intelligent all-wheel drive system, with a BMW plug-in hybrid system. This combination of the two makes the BMW Concept X5 eDrive stand out for typical sportiness and luxury BMW is known for, but also efficiency and environmental-friendliness. The vehicle is able to give owners outstanding driving dynamics, yet at the same time produces 0% local emissions when driven in the purely electric mode. This not only makes the concept the most fuel-efficient vehicle in its class, but puts BMW a step ahead with ground-breaking efficiency in the SAV segment. The Concept X5 also has a powerful BMW TwinPower Turbo 4-cylinder engine that allows for top-quality driving dynamics and lower fuel consumption and emissions at the same time.

The BMW 330e iPerformance Sedan

The BMW 330e combines an electric motor and a BMW TwinPower Turbo engine to offer both exceptional driving dynamic and comfort and incredible efficiency. While the typical sportiness and elegance of a BMW 3 Series is carried over to this concept, it would give owners utmost efficiency and eco-friendliness. Thanks to BMW eDrive technology the 330e can be driven in an electric mode that produces zero emissions and zero fuel consumption. The high-voltage battery is stored underneath the luggage compartment is ideal for day-to-day driving, all while enjoying the comfort, functionality and roominess of a 3 Series. The “eDrive” lettering at the c-pillars indicates the vehicle’s innovative drive technology. The plug-in hybrid features outstanding agility thanks to the sportily attuned suspension and guarantees outstanding dynamics in all driving modes. The eDrive button allows the driver to choose between three eDrive 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. In the AUTO eDrive mode, the optimal combination of electric motor and combustion engine enables the focus to be placed on top-quality efficiency.


BMW is working towards expanding its fleet of vehicles with eDrive technology in 2016 an onwards. From the 330e, to the high-end X5, more and more models will be supplemented by an additional electric drive. The end goal is for all BMW series to have at least one plug-in hybrid.
