The BMW i8 Concept Spyder is on display at the Beijing Auto Show, happening from April 23rd to May 2nd. The new technology can be found behind the new eDrive emblem that will come standard on all electric BMWs while plug-in hybrids will still bear the BMW i emblems.
BMW new eDrive is powered with an electric motor developed in-house by BMW along with the lithium-ion battery, and the intelligent motor management system. The technology ensures that electro-mobility with BMW eDrive offers a unique experience. For example, an electric motor offers full torque from a standing start and the acceleration unfolds continuously in thoroughbred electric vehicles until the top speed is reached.
Vehicles with BMW eDrive technology are therefore extremely agile and offer enormous driving fun. The lithium-ion battery cells and the intelligent motor management system also offer a substantial increase in range and power for the vehicle.
The future will see BMW eDrive technology empowering all electric drives - electric and plug-in vehicles from BMW i - giving them the capability for being particularly dynamic and smart.
