From May 15th to 21st, the BMW X1 plug-in hybrid mileage upgrade test drive event was held in Hainan. Hainan has unique ecological resources and a pleasant coastline. It is committed to building a low-carbon ecological island and is committed to promoting new energy vehicles. A test drive event was held here. The upgraded version of the BMW X1 plug-in hybrid mileage showed high efficiency and high energy. A new concept of travel that combines luxury, comfort and low-carbon environmental protection.
The new model is the first mass-produced model equipped with the 811 ternary lithium-ion battery pack. Under the premise of almost no increase in the weight of the battery pack, the pure electric cruising range has been increased by 83% to 110 kilometers, making it the world’s pure electric cruising range. The longest-range luxury plug-in hybrid. This model fully demonstrates the determination of the BMW brand to lead electric mobility with innovative technologies and promote the group’s new “first strategy”.
Intelligent management of dual power, high efficiency, energy saving and safety
The theme of the first day of the event was “High Efficiency”. From Sanya Sunny Bay to Shenzhou Peninsula, the first 112 kilometers of journey included busy urban roads and expressways with dense traffic. The team first activated the SAVE BATTERY mode to accumulate power for the battery. The BMW 1.5-liter turbocharged fuel engine not only provides sufficient power for the vehicle, but also takes the job of gathering energy for the battery.
The next nearly 100 kilometers is an ideal route to test the real pure electric cruising range of the new model. In the high temperature of 35°C, the air conditioner was turned on all the way, and the team completed the journey in the pure electric mode of MAX eDRIVE without using a drop of fuel. After arriving at the destination, the remaining pure electric mileage of the vehicle plus the actual driving distance, Far more than 110 kilometers. The new battery pack is provided by CATL, a partner of BMW Brilliance, and has added flame-retardant materials inside to meet BMW’s stringent safety standards.
The ultra-long pure electric cruising range not only benefits from the new 811 battery technology, which increases the energy density of the battery pack by 61% with little change in weight, but also benefits from the powerful power of BMW eDrive technology to intelligently optimize energy consumption : Under the circumstances that the driver is hardly aware, the vehicle will intelligently use technical means such as energy recovery and neutral gear to do its best to optimize energy consumption.
The next hybrid power consumption challenge showed the amazingly low fuel consumption of this model. During this section of driving, the vehicle started with less than half of the power. When the power was exhausted, the BMW 1.5-liter turbocharged fuel engine began to work, and the high-voltage battery became a buffer for smooth engine power output, which made the whole car more comfortable. A fuel consumption of 1.3 liters per kilometer is possible.
When X meets E, both road and cross-country are high-powered
The keyword on the second day of the test drive turned into “high energy”. The Leqi Park in Wenchang is specially designed for motocross races, with curves, high slopes and cross-axis roads of various angles built on the natural fine sand. The off-road performance test of new energy vehicles in such a venue depends not on the courage of the driver, but on the wisdom of BMW engineers.
The BMW X1 plug-in hybrid model also has the powerful off-road capability of the BMW X family. The hybrid system whose front axle is mainly driven by the engine and the rear axle is driven by the electric motor can not only achieve efficient driving on normal road conditions, but also when encountering complex road conditions, On-demand all-wheel drive is also possible.
In the vehicle’s default AUTO eDRIVE mode, the vehicle will give priority to using electric energy. When rapid acceleration is required or when encountering rough roads, the fuel engine starts immediately, superimposing two kinds of energy, and intelligently distributes the driving force according to the adhesion of the left and right wheels. Its comprehensive torque can reach up to 385 Nm, the maximum output power can reach 170 kW, and the acceleration from 0 to 100 km/h takes only 7.4 seconds.
BMW eDrive technology can also intelligently maintain the battery power level, ensuring that eBoost and xDrive functions are always online. When X meets E, it shows more powerful, flexible and efficient electric driving fun.
Luxurious style, high-quality life in low carbon
The new model still has the longest wheelbase of 2,780 mm in its class, and is equipped with the largest panoramic sunroof in its class, allowing all occupants to enjoy a transparent and spacious interior; the rear seats can be split flexibly at 40:20:40 Seats combined with large luggage space, even surfboards can be easily loaded, and roof racks provide more loading possibilities; 8.8-inch central touch display screen, natural voice recognition, automatic parking assistance system and other technological equipment Make driving easier. The BMW Cloud Connect APP and Instant Charging TM WeChat official account also allow users to keep track of charging status anytime, anywhere and enjoy digital technology.
BMW provides worry-free charging services for new energy customers. By the end of 2019, the Instant ChargeTM public charging service network will expand to 100,000 charging piles. Customers who purchase BMW new energy vehicles can also enjoy free private wall boxes and free basic installation services . More importantly, the purchase of the BMW X1 plug-in hybrid mileage upgraded version can also enjoy a full purchase tax reduction and a central subsidy of 13,200 yuan. The model has become the value bearer in the X1 family.
