ECO PRO Mode.
The ECO PRO Mode supports you in achieving a particularly efficient driving style. As soon as you select the consumption-friendly ECO PRO mode using the Driving Experience Control button, the intelligent system goes into action and – depending on your individual driving style – enables you to reduce fuel consumption.
The ECO PRO mode gears everything towards maximum efficiency: accelerator pedal and gearbox parameters as well as shift points are all optimised and the heating/air-conditioning strategy is adapted intelligently.
The Control Display indicates how the ECO PRO mode is actively reducing energy consumption, e.g. through Brake Energy Regeneration or the Auto Stop Start function. What is more, ECO PRO tips on more efficient driving show information such as the optimum choice of gear at any point in time.
Which saving potential is implemented is for you, the driver, to decide. Following the ECO PRO tips makes it possible to achieve a reduction in fuel consumption of up to 20%*. The bonus range in the on-board computer shows you exactly how many additional kilometres you can now drive.
*Determined as part of an internal BMW consumption study.
The ECO PRO Mode is not available for the BMW 550i and BMW 550i xDrive.
