No comments

Steering wheel BMW 535dImpressive is one word that comes to mind with the 2014 BMW 535d besides getting an average MPG of about 45 miles per gallon.

It’s efficient, strong, luxurious and fun. Besides the torque, it includes extremely amazing green LED lighting that’s purely adaptive, fuel efficiency and amazing dynamics. It includes the M class to the car which is available by hand pedals behind the steering wheel. Coupled with a detailed carbon fiber interior, this car is a special breed and more than meets the eye.

BMW Efficient Dynamics includes a Mild Hybrid Electric Car too

When seeing the sign for “Efficiency Dynamics” one asks what does that mean? An example is being able to go down and up a 25 degree angle hill without stepping on the pedal once. It also includes a mini battery to recharge and use energy for; making the car a mild hybrid electric car.

As Car and Driver adds:

“when you have 413 lb-ft of torque flowing from 1500 to 3000 rpm, and the 255 horsepower peak comes at 4000 rpm. So smooth and quiet is the inline six-cylinder turbocharged 3.0-liter that we often forgot it was a diesel. That could have turned out badly if we’d been called on to refuel our test car, but the 30 mpg combined EPA mileage and the 18.5-gallon fuel tank will take you more than 550 miles. You probably can stretch that range on long trips, since the highway rating is 38 mpg.” (Again we got 43 to 45 MPG in ECO MODE)
