BMW 5 Series: ECO PRO

Concept

ECO PRO supports a driving style that saves on consumption. For this purpose, the engine control and comfort features, for instance the climate control output, are adjusted.

Steptronic transmission: under certain conditions the engine is automatically decoupled from the transmission in the D selector lever position. The vehicle continues traveling with the engine idling to reduce consumption. The D selector lever position remains engaged.

In addition, context-sensitive information, ECO PRO tips, are displayed to assist with an efficient driving style.

The achieved extended range is displayed in the instrument cluster as bonus range.

General information

The system includes the following EfficientDynamics functions and EfficientDynamics displays:

  • ECO PRO bonus range
  • ECO PRO climate control
  • Coasting driving condition
  • Driving style analysis

Coasting

Efficiency can be optimized by disengaging the engine and coasting with the engine idling.

Deactivate the function to use the braking effect of the engine when traveling downhill.

ECO PRO seat climate control

The output of seat heating and, where applicable, seat ventilation is reduced when ECO PRO is activated.

ECO PRO climate control

Climate control is set to be efficient.

This means, it is possible to deviate slightly from the set temperature or to heat or cool the car's interior more slowly, to economize on consumption.

The mirror heating is made available when external temperatures are very cold.

ECO PRO Sight

The output of exterior mirror heating and rear window defroster is reduced.

Resetting the settings

Display in the instrument cluster

ECO PRO bonus range

you A modified driving style helps you extend your driving distance.

The range extension can be displayed as the bonus range in the instrument cluster.

The bonus range is shown in the range display.

Depending on the equipment, the blue bar segments symbolize the gained range in stages.

If the bonus range appears in gray, the current driving style is inefficient.

The display turns blue as soon as all conditions for efficient driving are met.

The bonus range is automatically reset every time the vehicle is refueled.

Consumption display

Instrument cluster without enhanced features

Information about the current driving style

Information about the current driving style

A pointer in the consumption display informs about the current driving style:

  • The current consumption in relation to the average consumption is displayed.
  • Pointer in the area of arrow 1: display of the energy recovered by coasting or when braking.
  • Pointer in the area of arrow 2: display when accelerating.

If the acceleration is inefficient, the area between the average consumption and the current consumption is colored red.

In addition, the following information is displayed, depending on the situation:

  • Depending on the equipment: the total distance driven while coasting.
  • The total time that the engine has been switched off during automatic engine stops.
  • A gear shift indicator recommending the use of a more efficient gear.
