BMW Electric vs.  Diesel: 1600 km per tank

BMW Electric vs. Diesel: 1600 km per tank

Taking an old BMW 7 and driving it from London to Madrid on one tank is not a bad idea. Especially if you record the whole video. Don’t miss this trip.

This article was preceded by a very specific case. And a discussion in our editorial office. Originally, we thought we’d keep the entire story point for the content itself and not reveal it in the title. In short, because it is so superior to electric mobility that it may no longer be possible. And we didn’t want to base a headline on this declassification. But in the end, “truth won” and the main thing in the above title. As it turns out, read on and don’t miss the video. This will take you.

The economy runs through Europe

The whole story revolves around a man named Joe Achilles, who, among other things, enjoys making travel documentaries. Of course with cars and friends, because it’s all about cars and friends. What’s really interesting about this particular “journey through Europe” is that it’s incredibly economical and practical Can a diesel car older than BMW be? Sevens. That is, a small four-wheeled aircraft. You expect comfort, you expect speed, and you expect prestige. Economie? Only in second place. Yet here he is.

Because if you and your friend decided to try the London-Madrid Economic Management and you desperately wanted a BMW, what would you choose? three. Perfectly suitable for two people. Or five if all at ease. But you want to move more than five meters of steel, aluminum and a lot of electrical scrap Just to feel like you’re riding in a limousine? Difficult. The two gave it a try anyway, taking the seven G11730d and driving south from London. More precisely to Madrid. And they photographed everything. The result will amaze you.

Big limousine with low consumption

They traveled from London to Madrid on an 80 liter tank. 1600 km. Have you shared it yet? number? So we will help you. After all, it’s very simple … … eight is half past six, so we have, we have … Five out of a hundred. Is this possible? Yebby. Long highway trips with reasonable speed, perfect weather, and economical turbo fuel. genius. According to many owners, this car can reach 8 liters without any problems. in the middle. And a hundred quiet along the highway? Five is not a problem. It really isn’t.

However, of course it didn’t happen by itself. For example, if you look at the dashboard of the car the two friends were driving, which can be seen several times in the video, you’ll notice several things. For the first time, to the left of the speedometer, the speed limit is set, after 60 miles per hour, which is about a hundred kilometers we have per hour. This is also the generally recognized optimum economical driving speed for most internal combustion engine vehicles. And as you can see, it also applies to large BMWs.

BMW quality to save fuel

Secondly, Joe activated the ECO PRO INDIVIDUAL mode, adjusting the functionality of many on-board devices and systems to obtain the lowest possible consumption. BMW states that up to 25% of fuel can be saved in this way. This is not a small number. We do not know how realistic or optimistic this number is, but here specifically the ECO PRO function helped. Of course, at a maximum speed of 100 km / h, when you hit the gasoline, it “resets” to the ground, and BMW uses its maximum power and speed.

And the

And now comes the most monotonous part of our article. Or maybe even funnier. Although how to whom. When the calculator was in our hands in terms of calculating depreciation, it did not allow us to They didn’t try to compare the theoretical range of an electric car from the same stable on the same road. In other words, you can choose between the older seven-cylinder diesel engine and the latest i7 model. Purchase costs (however significantly different) will not be taken into account for this.

There is no good news for electricity. Unfortunately

BMW claims a range of between 590 and 625 kilometers for its electric core. These are excellent values ​​in themselves. Recharging under ideal conditions from the Ionity 195kW fast charger takes about 6 minutes / another 100 km of driving. This is also a great value, although it still isn’t comparable to anything “liquid in tank”. But for the sake of planet Earth, we can manage a few dozen minutes. But we have some small “buts”:

  • BMW states on its calculator that the range is reduced to 420 km if the road is on the highway, the temperature outside is 20 degrees and air conditioning is used. These were exactly the conditions for the “fly over Europe” test.
  • Ionita chargers are not nearly as widespread in France and Spain. For the sake of objectivity, we’ll calculate using 50% Ionity, 50% classic 50 kW fast charger

At that moment, however, the essentially comparable action “Electro vs. The “classic” can be significantly changed in favor of a classic engine. You need 21 minutes to charge 100 km using a 50 kW charger. pSince we’re based on a range of 420 kilometers, we’ll calculate 4 x 21 minutes for simplicity. So 84 minutes every 420 kilometers multiplied by two. It equals 168 minutes. With Ionita, it’s 4 x 6 minutes, multiplied by two. It equals 48 minutes. Total 216 minutes. No, 3 hours and 36 minutes. Is it too much or too little?

Record BMW Diesel Vs. BMW Electric 1: 0

a matter of perspective. Or what can you do in 3.5 hours? If you’re on your way to a date, like a business meeting, you’ll likely be long past it on your way back when the i7 electric car rolls into Madrid. In addition: to be able to drive immediately with the i7 you will have to recharge again, I just used 4 x 400 km. Aren’t you tired of this life? Maybe we do. And 400 kilometers on the highway is nothing to get excited about. Especially if the predecessor of the “old” diesel could do 4x as much. It fills up in 5 minutes. So where is the progress?
