BMW 3 Owners & Service Manuals


With a sufficient state of charge of the high-voltage battery unit, all-electric driving of the vehicle with maximum power of the electric drive is possible for up to 41 miles (66 km). The maximum speed in this case is 87 mph (140 km/h).

In the STANDARD variant, all ECO PRO settings are switched off and the damping (depending on the equipment) and steering are set to "Comfort" (see ELECTRIC INDIVIDUAL).

The following events can mean that the ELECTRIC driving mode cannot be selected or is disabled:

  • State of charge of the high-voltage battery unit too low
  • Kickdown (switch to HYBRID STANDARD)
  • Speed too high
  • Gear selector switch in Sport/Manual position (change to HYBRID with the last selected variant)
  • Shift paddles on the steering wheel actuated (change to HYBRID with the last selected variant)
  • Cell temperature too high / low
  • System fault


In the G20 PHEV the driver has the possibility to individualize the ELECTRIC driving mode and make settings with regard to efficiency and sportiness. ELECTRIC INDIVIDUAL can be selected as the standard driving mode so that this driving mode is active at every engine start. Alongside all other settings, this is saved for the driver profile currently in use.

The following settings can be made:

  • ECO PRO functions seat heating
  • ECO PRO functions climate control
  • ECO PRO functions light and sight
  • Driving dynamics damping action (depending on equipment)
  • Driving dynamics steering

There is no longer a display of the ECO PRO potential.
