ECO PRO Mode gears everything towards maximum efficiency: accelerator pedal, gearbox parameters and shift points are all optimised and the heating/climate control strategy intelligently adapted to achieve optimum consumption.


Driving in ECO PRO Mode takes all the factors that influence fuel consumption into consideration and allows efficient driving at the touch of a button. As soon as the ECO PRO Mode is activated it optimises the systems that affect the drivetrain as well as the heating and air conditioning functions, and enables them to work at maximum efficiency. The ECO PRO tips shown in the Control Display help the driver optimise his driving behaviour and the bonus range shows him how many extra kilometres he’s saved by driving economically in ECO PRO Mode. Depending on the individual driving style, this can result in a reduction in fuel consumption of up to 20%*.

If using the BMW Navigation system Professional, you have the option of selecting the ECO PRO Route. The system recommends the route with the lowest consumption – on the basis of individual driving characteristics, the traffic situation and the route profile. This way you can reduce fuel consumption with only a minimal increase in time. Fuel savings made by selecting ECO PRO Route are displayed.

* Calculated by BMW in an internal consumption study.
