BMW 3 Owners & Service Manuals


The HYBRID ECO PRO driving mode rigorously supports a driving style that reduces consumption and its attribute corresponds to the combination of ECO PRO and Auto eDrive of the predecessor model. In this driving mode the G20 PHEV has its maximum overall range. Essentially the following measures help to increase the range:

  • A modified accelerator pedal characteristic curve and shift program with automatic transmission helps the driver adopt a driving style that optimizes fuel consumption.
  • No boost function available (except with kickdown).
  • Adaptive energy recovery or coasting (innovation, see chapter entitled "Operating strategy").
  • The combustion engine is switched off in the case of coasting at up to 100 mph (160 km/h).
  • Power reduction of the electrical comfort consumer units such as mirror, seat or rear window heating.
  • Power reduction of heating / air-conditioning system.

Individualization in the same way as in the predecessor model is no longer possible in the HYBRID ECO mode. The attribute corresponds to specified parameters.


The attribute of the ELECTRIC driving mode corresponds to the combination of COMFORT and MAX eDrive mode of the predecessor model. In contrast to the HYBRID driving mode, in ELECTRIC INDIVIDUAL the driver has the possibility to adjust settings with regard to efficiency and driving dynamics.
