Munich. Before BMW i Andretti Motorsport enters its second season in the ABB FIA Formula E Championship on 22nd November, the team takes another look back. “Racing into the future: Formula E as a TechLab for the BMW Group” is the title of the new documentary on BMW i Motorsport’s Formula E project – from the test and development phase to the first win in the first race with the BMW iFE.18. The documentary, lasting just over 20 minutes, is available to view in Germany, Great Britain and the USA.

 

The film highlights the individual development steps of the drive train, car and team in detail. The focus is on the close transfer of technology between motorsport and BMW i production development, which sets and continues to set new standards in this form.

 

“The film shows impressively that the Formula E project is much more than just another race to us,” said BMW Group Motorsport Director Jens Marquardt, who also provides interesting insights into the project during the documentary. “For the BMW Group, Formula E is a TechLab for the development of future electric production drive trains. The collaboration between the motorsport and production departments is a cycle. The Formula E drive benefitted from the experience of the production engineers during development. In return, the BMW i engineers are able to make use of all the technical insights that we gain through extreme use in Formula E. In spite of all the joy over sporting successes on the racetrack, this is the most important aspect of the Formula E project for us.”

 

Numerous protagonists who played crucial roles in the development process have their say. These include the BMW i engineers who developed and manufactured the drive train of the Formula E car in collaboration with the BMW Motorsport engineers in the same factories in which the BMW i series production drive is also produced. Their statements and images of their work emphasise just how closely intertwined motorsport and production development are in the Formula E project.

CO2 emission information.

The following applies to consumption figures for vehicles with new type approval, September 2017 onward: The figures for fuel consumption, CO2 emissions and energy consumption are obtained in accordance with the specified measuring procedure (EC Regulation No. 715/2007), as issued and amended. The figures are for a basic-version vehicle in Germany. The bandwidths allow for differences in the choice of wheel and tire sizes and items of optional equipment and can be changed by the configuration.

Obtained on the basis of the new "Worldwide harmonized Light vehicles Test Procedure" (WLTP), the figures are converted back to the "New European Driving Cycle" (NEDC) for the sake of comparability. Values other than those stated here may be used for the purposes of taxation and for other vehicle-related duties relating to CO2 emissions.

More information about official fuel consumption figures and the official specific CO2 emissions of new passenger cars can be obtained from the "guideline on fuel consumption, CO2 emissions and current consumption of new passenger cars", available here: https://www.dat.de/co2/.
