Munich. Additions to the line-up of drive systems and
the range of optional extras are set to further increase the appeal
and diversity of the BMW product range from spring 2024. The BMW i5
Sedan and BMW iX2 fully electric models will each be available from
March 2024 with an additional drive system variant. The drive system
offerings for the BMW X2 and BMW XM have also been expanded. The
innovative Highway Assistant will bring increased comfort levels over
longer journeys to more of the brand’s model series. And additional
exterior paint finishes will be offered for the BMW 5 Series Sedan,
BMW X2 and BMW iX2. Customers will also be able to order the business
sedan with new variants of the BMW Individual Merino leather trim.

Attractive new features will also be introduced in spring 2024 in the
area of digital services. These include easier use of the voice
assistant Siri (as part of the integration of the Apple iPhone into
cars specified with BMW Operating System 9), and the optimised display
of ratings for charging stations for fully electric and plug-in hybrid
BMW models. The steady expansion of the range of functions for the My
BMW App also continues.

BMW i5 xDrive40: third fully electric variant of the business sedan.

A third fully electric variant will be added to the new BMW 5 Series
Sedan line-up in March 2024. The new BMW i5 xDrive40 Sedan (electric
power consumption, combined: 20.0 – 17.2 kWh/100 km in the WLTP cycle)
has two highly integrated electric drive units at the front and rear
axle which together develop a system output of up to 290 kW/394 hp and
peak torque of 590 Nm (435 lb-ft). Underpinned by the resultant
electric all-wheel drive, the BMW i5 xDrive40 Sedan accelerates from 0
to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 5.4 seconds. Its top speed is limited to
215 km/h (134 mph).

The third fully electric model variant of the new business sedan
stores its energy in a high-voltage battery positioned deep in the
vehicle floor. The battery delivers 81.2 kWh of usable energy. The
car’s Combined Charging Unit enables AC charging at a rate of 11 kW as
standard and 22 kW as an option. And it also allows DC charging at
fast-charging stations at up to 205 kW. This means the range of the
BMW i5 xDrive40 Sedan can be increased by 156 kilometres (97 miles) in
the space of ten minutes. The likewise standard Plug & Charge
Multi Contract function enables automatic authentication of the car at
public charging points. The range of the new BMW i5 xDrive40 Sedan as
calculated in the WLTP cycle is 463 – 538 kilometres (288 – 334 miles).

Additional exterior paint finishes can be specified for all model
variants of the new BMW 5 Series Sedan from March 2024. The spectrum
of colours will now also include the BMW Individual Frozen Portimao
Blue metallic and BMW Individual Malachite Green metallic variants. At
the same time, the business sedan will also be offered with extremely
exclusive BMW Individual special paint finishes. BMW Individual has
come up with around 150 eye-catching shades (solid, metallic and matt)
for this product area. All BMW Individual special paint finishes stand
out with their impressive depth of colour and exceptional lustre.
Customers can unlock an overview of the variants for the new BMW 5
Series Sedan using the BMW Individual Visualizer, which can be
accessed via a link in the vehicle configurator.

Added to which, extra variants of the seat and interior surfaces for
the new BMW 5 Series Sedan are also available. If the optional comfort
seats have been specified, the BMW Individual Merino leather trim can
also be specified in the bi-colour variants Dark Violet/Atlas Grey and
Taupe Grey/Atlas Grey from March 2024.

New entry-level variant for the BMW iX2; launch of the BMW X2 xDrive20d.

BMW’s current model offensive in the area of electric mobility also
brings additional variety to the premium compact segment. A new
entry-level variant of the fully electric BMW iX2 will go on sale in
March 2024. The new BMW iX2 eDrive20 (electric power consumption,
combined: 16.9 – 15.3 kWh/100 km in the WLTP cycle) takes a
particularly economical route to delivering locally emission-free
driving pleasure in a compact Sports Activity Coupé (SAC). Powered by
a 150 kW/204 hp electric motor at the front axle, it sprints from 0 to
100 km/h (62 mph) in 8.6 seconds and posts a range of 439 –
478 kilometres (273 – 297 miles) in the WLTP cycle. Its top speed is
limited to 170 km/h (106 mph).

The high-voltage battery in the new BMW iX2 eDrive20 serves up
64.78 kWh of usable energy and can be charged from AC sources at 11 kW
as standard and up to 22 kW as an option. DC charging is possible at
up to 130 kW. Thanks to extremely efficient charging software and
predictive heat management capability, brief stops are enough to
significantly increase the battery charge. In ten minutes hooked up to
a fast-charging station, the BMW iX2 eDrive20 can take on sufficient
energy to boost its range by 120 kilometres (75 miles). The
BMW iX2 eDrive20 is also equipped for using the Plug & Charge
Multi Contract function as standard.

Lining up alongside the new entry-level variant of the BMW iX2 is the
new BMW X2 xDrive20d (fuel consumption, combined: 5.2 – 4.8 litres/100
km [54.3 – 58.9 mpg imp]; CO2 emissions, combined:
136 – 125 g/km in the WLTP cycle). The second diesel variant of the
compact SAC is distinguished by even more rapid power delivery and
even greater efficiency courtesy of 48V mild hybrid technology. Its
2.0-litre four-cylinder engine links up with an electric motor
integrated into the seven-speed Steptronic transmission with double
clutch. The motor serves as a crankshaft-driven starter generator and
can both ease the load on the diesel engine and act in unison with it.
The drive system develops maximum output of 120 kW/163 hp (developed
by the combination of the combustion engine with up to 110 kW/150 hp
and the electric motor with up to 14 kW/19 hp) and peak torque of
400 Nm / 295 lb-ft (developed by the combination of the combustion
engine with up to 360 Nm / 265 lb-ft and the electric motor with up to
55 Nm / 41 lb-ft), all of which is channelled to the road via the
intelligent all-wheel-drive system BMW xDrive. This allows the
BMW X2 xDrive20d to accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in
8.6 seconds. Top speed is 207 km/h (129 mph).

From March 2024, all model variants of the new BMW X2 and new BMW iX2
will also be available with an expanded range of exterior paint
finishes. Frozen Black metallic is a new addition to the selection.

BMW XM 50e: high performance with maximum efficiency.

As the latest offshoot of the first ever electrified high-performance
model from BMW M GmbH, the new BMW XM 50e (fuel consumption, combined:
1.7 – 1.3 litres/100 km [166.2 – 217.3 mpg imp]; electric power
consumption, combined: 32.2 – 31.5 kWh/100 km; CO2
emissions, combined: 37 – 30 g/km in the WLTP cycle) blends signature
M dynamism, extrovert design and progressive interior luxury with
maximum efficiency. Its M HYBRID drive system is composed of a
six-cylinder in-line petrol engine and an electric motor integrated,
together with its power electronics, into the eight-speed Steptronic
Sport transmission. This combination produces system output of 350
kW/476 hp (developed by the combination of the combustion engine with
up to 230 kW/313 hp and the electric motor with up to 145 kW/197 hp)
and maximum system torque of 700 Nm / 516 lb-ft (developed by the
combination of the combustion engine with up to 450 Nm / 332 lb-ft and
the electric motor with up to 280 Nm / 206 lb-ft).

The latest version of the 3.0-litre combustion engine fitted in the
BMW XM 50e owes its enhanced performance characteristics among other
things to the Miller combustion cycle, dual injection, an exhaust
manifold integrated into the cylinder head and VANOS variable camshaft
timing, which now works electrically. The electric motor has a
pre-gearing stage patented by BMW, which allows the effective torque
at the transmission input for the motor to be increased to 450 Nm (332
lb-ft). The top speed of the high-performance model – which is also
equipped with the all-wheel-drive system M xDrive – is an
electronically limited 250 km/h (155 mph). Thanks to an electric range
of 77 – 83 kilometres (48 – 52 miles) in the WLTP cycle, the BMW XM
50e can cover much of its everyday mileage – e.g. in urban centres –
with zero local emissions. And it can also be driven on electric power
alone beyond the city limits at speeds of up to 140 km/h (87 mph).

The most efficient version of the new M HYBRID system comes together
with the extraordinary presence of the unmistakable high-performance
model in the Sports Activity Vehicle segment. The model-specific
design features of the new variant include the black accent band along
the sides of the car, plus a surround for the BMW kidney grille and
trim detailing for the rear diffuser (both in Pearl-effect Chrome),
exhaust tailpipe trim in Black high-gloss and silver-coloured
bordering for the model badge. Customers wishing to bring an extra
personal touch to the interior of their new BMW XM 50e – which also
offers a unique combination of modern sports car flair and extravagant
luxury with its M-specific cockpit, M multifunction seats, sculptural
headliner and M Lounge in the rear compartment – can specify features
including exclusive Vintage leather for the upper section of the
instrument panel and door trim panels.

Highway Assistant: innovative Level 2 functionality for more models.

Relaxed travel over long distances and an impressive experience of
semi-automated driving are the specialities of the Highway Assistant,
which made its debut in the new BMW 5 Series Sedan and is now also
available for other current BMW models.

As an additional function of the Steering and Lane Control Assistant
included in the optional Driving Assistant Professional, the Highway
Assistant takes over the vehicle’s speed control, distance control and
steering on motorways with structurally separated carriageways when
travelling at up to 135 km/h (84 mph). The driver can take their hands
off the steering wheel and put them in a comfortable position,
provided they continue to pay attention to what is happening on the
road and are able to take over the steering again at any time. This
Level 2 – as determined by the Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE) –
semi-automated driving function will also be available for the BMW 7
Series luxury sedan, BMW iX, BMW XM, BMW X5, BMW X6 and BMW X7 from
spring 2024.

The Active Lane Change Assistant with eye confirmation included as
part of the new Highway Assistant adds another layer to the
semi-automated driving experience. As soon as the traffic situation
permits, it is capable of performing the necessary steering movements
for an overtaking manoeuvre, for example, and adjusting the vehicle’s
speed as required. Plus, for the first time, the driver is able to
initiate a lane change suggested by this system by simply looking in
the exterior mirror to confirm it.

New digital services, My BMW App with additional functions.

Among the digital services available for the first time from spring
2024 is the extended smartphone integration for vehicles equipped with
BMW Operating System 9. This enables the Siri voice assistant for the
Apple iPhone to be activated directly by voice command and without
needing to also press the push-to-talk button. Elsewhere, the
cloud-based navigation system BMW Maps now boasts improved display of
information on charging stations. The available images and ratings are
shown both in the list of search results and in the detailed display.
The charging station ratings will now be shown clearly on a scale of
zero to five stars. 

Added to which, in numerous European countries the BMW iDrive display
and control/operation system in many current models also enables
digital payment of parking fees and – in Germany – also fuel top-ups
from inside the car. As with payment of parking fees, this uses the
credit card information pre-stored in the vehicle apps.

As a universal digital interface for data exchange between the
customer and their car, the My BMW App offers an ever-expanding number
of functions. From spring 2024, Comfort Access with the BMW Digital
Key Plus will be integrated into the My BMW App in vehicles equipped
with BMW Operating System 8, 8.5 or 9. In addition, the map view for
selecting navigation destinations imported into the vehicle has been
newly designed. This also improves the search function and the
visibility of the most relevant content. Map and routing functions
will in future be proposed based on current vehicle or user contexts.

Finally, the new E-mobility Analysis function will also be added to
the My Trips menu item in the My BMW App. Based on the customer’s
driving behaviour, this function proposes the BMW model with
all-electric drive system most suited to them. These recommendations
are intended to help spark interest among users of combustion-engined
vehicles in switching to an electric vehicle.
