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 up to 141.2 miles per gallon 2.1 to 2.0 l/100 km and 49 to 46 g/km respectively.
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 BMW 225xe Active Tourer is economical with its fuel consumption − and more than generous when it comes to space. Thanks to the elevated seating position, rear-seat passengers enjoy an outstanding view. The high-voltage battery is stored compactly under the rear seat bench, meaning that there’s always enough room for your transport needs. The standard 40:20:40 split-folding rear seat further enhances the practical qualities of the vehicle. This increases the flexibility of the luggage compartment and also facilitates the transportation of bulky objects.
As a plug-in hybrid, the BMW 225xe Active Tourer has various different drive modes that allow the driver to significantly influence the actual consumption. This depends on both the driving mode selected and the driver’s personal behaviour. When the battery is fully charged, you can drive for up to 25 miles/ without using a single drop of fuel. In the AUTO eDrive mode, the optimal combination of electric motor and combustion engine enables the focus to be placed on top-quality efficiency.
