As part of a video series, BMW works driver Timo Glock (GER) takes his viewers on a discovery tour through numerous exciting areas of activity and projects within the BMW Group. ‘Timo’s Discovery’ offers exclusive looks behind the scenes.

After Timo Glock being in familiar territory in the BMW Motorsport simulator in episode one of ‘Timo’s Discovery’, he now visits the BMW Group in Garching near Munich (GER), to become one of the first people to test the new BMW 545e xDrive Sedan, available as of November. In the flagship plug-in hybrid model in the 5 Series, a synchronous electric engine with a maximum performance of 80 kW/109 hp is combined with an efficient inline six-cylinder petrol engine with BMW TwinPower Turbo technology with a performance of 210 kW/286hp for an overall system performance of 290 kW/394 hp. Through the intelligently controlled interaction of both engines, the new BMW 545e xDrive combines the best of both worlds. It enables both fully electric driving in urban traffic and efficient commuting between home and work, as well as dynamic short drives and comfortable long journeys.

 

That’s the theory. In the practical test, Glock was impressed by both the performance data and the efficiency. His conclusion: “I’ve had the privilege of driving BMW cars for ten years now, and it is always a pleasure. The BMW 545e xDrive is very agile, very easy to handle, very sporty and very comfortable. I’m impressed.”

 

In the video, Glock presents the car in a variety of driving situations, has an expert explain the special features and shows what links the famous composer Hans Zimmer with the BMW 545e xDrive.

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/.
