More and more cities are introducing so-called environmental zones. In order to promote emission-free travel through these environmental zones to the greatest extent possible, we have developed the BMW eDrive Zones on this basis. In future, your BMW plug-in hybrid* will automatically recognise when it is entering an environmental zone and will switch over automatically to an emission-free, purely electric driving mode. On journeys with active navigation, you BMW will even prepare the battery in anticipation of the BMW eDrive Zone and, if necessary, will recommend a charging station in your area. One additional advantage when travelling in eDrive Zones: for every kilometre covered by purely electric means, you will collect a double ration of digital bonus points, the so-called BMW Points. You can then conveniently convert these points into useful rewards such as gratis charging minutes at public charging stations.
