BMW Laserlight

In laser high-beam mode, BMW Laserlight illuminates a range of up to 600 m, nearly twice as far as that of conventional headlights. Better visibility in the dark significantly increases safety. Blue accents and the lettering "BMW Laser" in the headlight also underline the technological standards and the sportiness of the vehicle.

M carbon-fibre roof

As part of the intelligent lightweight construction concept, the M carbon-fibre roof significantly helps to reduce the vehicle's weight. It consists of carbon-fibre reinforced plastic (CFRP) and is 800 g lighter than the standard roof. That way, the centre of gravity of the vehicle is shifted downwards and the driving dynamics are increased.

Fuel consumption and CO2 emissions

The values for fuel consumption, CO2 emissions and energy consumption shown have been determined according to the WLTP test. WLTP has been used as the applicable fuel and energy consumption and CO2 emissions figure from 1 January 2021 for vehicle registration tax (VRT). The figures were previously based on the NEDC equivalent. Figures shown are for comparability purposes. Only compare fuel consumption, CO2 and electric range figures with other cars tested to the same technical procedures. These figures may not reflect real life driving results, which will depend upon a number of factors including the starting charge of the battery, accessories fitted (post-registration), variations in weather, driving styles and vehicle load. For plug-in hybrid vehicles these figures were obtained using a combination of battery power and fuel. Plug-in hybrid and battery electric vehicles require mains electricity for charging. More information on the WLTP test procedure can be found here: https://www.bmw.ie/en/topics/fascination-bmw/efficient-dynamics/consumption-emissions.html

A guide on fuel economy and CO2 emissions which contains data for all new passenger car models is available at any point of sale free of charge.
