Munich. BMW has a very special surprise in store for its drivers as the New Year dawns. Starting on 31 December, an animation can be played in the vehicle display – a New Year’s message accompanied by some fittingly festive music and a stunningly orchestrated ambient lighting sequence. 

The New Year Festive Animation will be available (in participating markets) to all customers with suitably equipped vehicles from 1 – 7 January. Starting the car brings up a special banner in the Control Display. Clicking on it then activates the New Year programme, comprising a full-screen festive animation in the Control Display with aptly chosen backing music and an accompanying light show courtesy of the ambient lighting system. Customers also have the option of triggering the New Year greetings sequence manually, either with the help of the BMW Intelligent Personal Assistant – “Hey BMW, Happy New Year” – or by using the app in the Vehicle menu, which will also be available for one week. The New Year banner will appear automatically up to three times on starting the car and will be accessible anytime in the Messages menu following the first activation.

A similar function will be offered for Christmas in selected markets starting on 24 December. In this case, the festive greeting can again be launched via the BMW Intelligent Personal Assistant using the prompt “Hey BMW, Merry Christmas” or the app in the Vehicle menu. In the relevant markets, it will be possible to play the video message in the car over a period of seven days from 24 December. The Christmas animation will not be offered in Germany. 

These festive animations will be available in 41 countries worldwide for vehicles fitted with BMW Operating System 7.0 (software status 07/2020 or later).  

 

 

The BMW Group Digital Innovations team would like to wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! Stay healthy everyone and see you in 2021.

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/.
