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.

With the biggest and most extensive upgrade in the history of BMW to date, more than 750,000 cars around the world receive the latest version of BMW Operating System 7 (version 07/20) in 2020. One of the key components of this system is the BMW Intelligent Personal Assistant with enhanced functions and a more emotive look and feel. This captivated Glock while taking a tour around Munich (GER), during which he completed various tasks using the connectivity features on board the BMW 330e (combined fuel consumption: 1.8 – 1.5 l/100 km; combined energy consumption: 14.8 – 13.9 kWh/100 km; combined CO2 emissions: 41 – 35 g/km). These features include the first ever cloud-based navigation system BMW Maps, eDrive zones designed specifically for electrified BMW cars, connected charging, Apple CarPlay® as well as the BMW Digital Key, which enables the car to be opened and started using a smartphone.

 

“I was a little sceptical about connectivity initially, because I’m still an old school kinda guy,” says Glock giving his verdict after the test. “But once I got to know the system, I have to say that it was a big help, particularly in the Munich traffic, because you can concentrate on the basics – on driving. That’s what ended up fascinating me.”

 

The video is available on various BMW Group and BMW Motorsport channels, as well as on Timo Glock’s social media platforms.

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/.
