BMW EFFICIENT DYNAMICS: WE PUT EVERYTHING INTOBMW EfficientDynamicsGETTING THE MOST OUT OF OUR VEHICLES.Less emissions. More driving pleasure.At BMW, we create dynamic vehicles that thrill you with quick acceleration, predictable handling and reassuring control. We are also busy nding innovative fuels and technologies that help preserve the environment while delivering legendary performance. This is what we referto as Ef cientDynamics. This goal led to the visionary CleanEnergy hydrogen-powered engine in the BMW Hydrogen Sedan. In ,BMW introduced Advanced Diesel with BluePerformance in the U.S., offering diesel with reliable power, increased fuel ef ciency and reducedAs a part of our sustainability strategy, BMW was one of the rst manufacturers to pursue the goal ofemissions. A year later, BMWs ActiveHybrid X and ActiveHybrid vehicles combined combustion and electric power to boost performanceef cient driving technologies. BMW Ef cientDynamics represents the most comprehensive package ofwhile simultaneously reducing fuel consumption and CO emissions. And now, a completely new vehicle concept is targeted to meet the needinnovative technologies for reducing fuel consumption and emissions while simultaneously increasing for sustainable mobility in fast-growing metropolitan areas, in the shape of the BMW i .driving dynamics currently in standard production. To date, BMW has rolled out more than two millionvehicles worldwide equipped with Ef cientDynamics technologies.
