BMW 3: Displays in Central Information Display

The familiar hybrid-specific displays are used:

  • Trip data (previously eDrive use)
  • Energy and power flow display
  • Adaptation to stretch of road
  • Driving style analysis

The representation of the driving style analysis has been revised. In this way, it helps to develop a particularly efficient driving style and to save fuel and/or electrical energy. The function is only available in the HYBRID ECO driving mode. The efficiency is visualized in the shape of a triangle with the anticipation featured on the left and the acceleration behavior on the right.

Displays in Central Information Display
G20 PHEV, display of driving style analysis

The more efficient the driving style, the more bars are displayed in color and the higher the number of points displayed. In the case of an inefficient driving style, on the other hand, a reduced number of bars and a lower number are displayed.

"Ready to drive" mode

Driving readiness in the G20 PHEV is indicated to the driver by the needle of the right display in the instrument cluster. Here the needle is at "READY". The vehicle is stationary and starts to move as soon as a drive position is engaged and the service brake is no longer actuated.

Depending on the state of charge of the high-voltage battery unit, the driving mode and the position of the accelerator pedal, the vehicle is either driven purely electrically or by the combustion engine. If, for example, the vehicle is stationary at a railway crossing or a red light, the driving readiness is switched on. If the combustion engine is started, for example, due to a power requirement, it also runs for a certain period of time so that the catalytic converter reaches operating temperature.


     Load point increase

    Raising the load of the combustion engine at consistent engine speed is called load point increase. This results in an increase in performance and the option to operate the combustion engine in the

     Wireless charging tray

    Concept The wireless charging tray enables the following functions to be performed without cables: Charging the rechargeable battery of a mobile phone with Qi capability and of other mobile devices, which support the Qi standard. Charge the BMW Display key, see Owner's Manual for the vehicle.

     Coordinating the charging procedure

    Coordination for starting and ending the charging procedure is performed by the high-voltage power management in the EME. The following actions required by the customer at the start of the charging procedure: Adjust the desired charge current level in ampere Set the start time for charging Co
