BMW ENGINE TECHNOLOGY.

CHOOSING THE RIGHT ENGINE. DIESEL. PETROL. HYBRID. ELECTRIC.

We recognise that when it comes to choosing the right engine, there is a wide range of compelling options available on the market today. With our diesel, petrol and plug-in hybrids all cleaner and more efficient than ever, each offers its own unique advantages.

Whichever BMW you may choose, our latest BMW engines guarantee the:

  • Highest performance
  • Best fuel consumption
  • Lowest emissions

In recent decades, our significant developments in engine technology have allowed us to reduce the total CO2 emissions of the BMW model range by 40%. As such, the latest generation of BMW TwinPower Turbo petrol, diesel and hybrid engines are cleaner and more efficient than ever, whilst still delivering our iconic BMW driving performance.

Every BMW engine employs 100 years of engineering excellence and a range of cutting-edge technologies as standard. So, whatever your requirements, you can be confident that you will be driving one of the cleanest, most efficient cars in its class.

Every new BMW engine meets the strictest EU6 emissions standards.

Between 1995 – 2016 we have reduced the total CO2 emissions of the BMW Group model range in Europe by 40%.




BMW DIESEL ENGINES. DYNAMIC PERFORMANCE. LOWER EMISSIONS.

BMW TwinPower Turbo diesel engines deliver a spirited response, class-leading fuel economy and impressively low emissions, thanks to BMW EfficientDynamics technology. Meaning you can enjoy more thrust with less thirst.

Our diesel engines employ two highly effective systems which combine to eliminate up to 90% of nitrogen oxide (NOX) emissions.

  • A diesel particle filter and maintenance-free NOX storage catalytic converter
  • A Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) system with BMW Blue Performance

On average, a diesel engine emits 20% less CO2 than a comparable petrol engine.

BMW diesel engines are made from lightweight aluminium and are available in 3, 4 and 6-cylinder variants.

All diesel engines boast the following BMW innovations:

  • Progressive turbocharger technology
  • Variable turbine geometry
  • Fully variable VALVETRONIC valve timing
  • Common-rail direct injection




​BMW BLUE PERFORMANCE.

BMW Blue Performance technologies reduce the NOX emissions produced by our diesel engines to an absolute minimum. In addition to the standard diesel particle filter and NOX catalytic converter, our more powerful diesel models also include an SCR system.

SCR is a cleaning system that uses an odourless AdBlue® solution to chemically convert NOX into harmless nitrogen (N2) and water (H2O).

As a result of these technologies, independent testing has found BMW to be among the best performing manufacturers in terms of real-world driving emissions.

BMW Blue Performance technology helps to eliminate up to 90% of emissions, converting them to N2 and H2O.


​BMW PETROL ENGINES. CUTS EMISSIONS. NOT DRIVING PLEASURE.

Thanks to our consistent focus on developing new innovations, the latest generation of BMW TwinPower Turbo petrol engines are more fuel efficient, more economical and more powerful than ever before.

For a truly responsive, highly efficient drive, our 3, 4 and 6-cylinder engine variants are built with the latest innovations:

  • ​Cutting-edge turbocharger technology
  • Fully-variable VALVETRONIC valve timing with double VANOS valve control
  • High precision direct injection

BMW 3 and 4-cylinder petrol engines are made in the UK at the BMW Hams Hall production facility in the Midlands.

The BMW TwinPower Turbo 6-cylinder petrol engine has repeatedly been named ‘International Engine of the Year’ for its combination of power and efficiency.​


MAXIMISING THE DRIVING PLEASURE.

BMW has an unrivalled reputation for delivering class-leading technology. The current generation of petrol engines employs the following innovations to deliver maximum driving pleasure.

HIGH PRECISION DIRECT INJECTION.

By using the full amount of energy from every drop of fuel, this petrol directinjection system delivers lower consumption, even at higher engine revs.

VALVETRONIC.

In 2001, BMW was the first manufacturer to harness this innovative technology that maximises the oxygen supply to each cylinder and allows the engine to breathe efficiently.

DOUBLE VANOS.

By optimising the fuel exchange, Double VANOS guarantees a responsive performance and higher torque, even at low revs and engine speeds.





BMW iPERFORMANCE. (PLUG-IN HYBRID ENGINES).

Building on the BMW 1602 of the 1970s, we have been developing electric automotive solutions for over four decades.

The BMW iPerformance range combines a powerful petrol engine with an electric motor that is powered by a lithium-ion battery, providing an exceptional all-electric driving range with the flexibility of a combustion engine, offering the best of both worlds.

BMW iPerformance models achieve CO2 emissions from just 44g/km, and combined fuel economies of up to 148mpg.

As a reflection of our commitment to sustainable mobility, we now offer the widest range of electric and plug-in hybrid vehicles in the UK.

In addition to the pioneering all-electric BMW i3, BMW plug-in hybrid technology is available in the following models:

  • BMW 225xe Active Tourer
  • BMW 330e Saloon
  • BMW 530e Saloon 
  • BMW 740e and 740Le xDrive​
  • BMW X5 xDrive40e
  • BMW i8

​SUSTAINABILITY.

BMW Group has been named the world’s most sustainable car maker for the last three consecutive years according to the Dow Jones Sustainability Indices (DJSI).

63% of the electricity sourced by BMW Group worldwide already comes from renewable energy sources.

Since 2006, we have reduced the energy consumption required to produce a BMW by 35% and reduced the waste produced by over 80%.
