An additional BMW M automobile and a further model variant with a particularly powerful engine will underscore the sporty character of the new BMW 4 Series Coupé from March 2021. In both cases, an inline six-cylinder diesel engine and intelligent all-wheel drive ensure efficient driving pleasure. In the new BMW M440d xDrive Coupé, the 250 kW/340 hp powertrain with BMW M TwinPower Turbo technology is also combined with an 8-speed Steptronic Sport transmission, an M sports package and an M sports differential. Thanks to the outstanding performance of the 3.0-liter engine and its maximum torque of 700 Nm, the new BMW M440d xDrive Coupé accelerates from zero to 100 km/h in 4.6 seconds. With a maximum output of 210 kW/286 hp from likewise 3.0 liters of displacement and a maximum torque of 650 Nm, the drive unit of the new BMW 430d xDrive Coupé also enables spirited acceleration maneuvers. It takes just 5.1 seconds to sprint from a standstill to 100 km/h. In both straight-six diesel models, mild hybrid technology with a 48-volt starter generator provides a further boost to dynamics and efficiency. The system enables particularly intensive energy recovery in braking and overrun phases. This is stored in a 48-volt battery and used both for the vehicle electrical system and to generate additional drive power. When starting off and accelerating, the additional power of 8 kW/11 hp provided by the 48-volt starter generator optimizes spontaneous power delivery. In other load ranges, the electric drive can relieve the internal combustion engine and thus increase its efficiency.
