Tuesday, December 22nd, 2015 - 2016, BMW

2016 BMW 5 Series GT eDrive is a prototype. Probably, although BMW says otherwise, this hydrogen car will never arrive in dealerships, unlike Toyota Mirai.

2016 BMW 5 Series GT eDrive Engine – Hydrogen Engine Fuel Cell

The 2016 BMW 5 Series GT eDrive is powered by fuel cells. This solution avoids that hydrogen is burned in a conventional gasoline engine, losing such efficiency to the propeller. Allows, on the contrary, to transform the hydrogen into the “current” to power an electric motor, in particular a unit of 180 kW / 245 hp positioned in the vicinity of the trunk. The engine is backed by a simple automatic transmission only two gears. In them, some lithium-ion batteries, since hydrogen responds sluggishly to the stress of the driver, and the tank positioned where usually passes the drive shaft.

BMW 5 Series Fuel Economy consumption

The 2016 BMW 5 Series GT has eDrive amns for the refueling of hydrogen cars is very low, at least in Italy. Something will change in this respect by 2020? BMW (and Toyota) believes. Once behind the wheel of the 2016 BMW 5 Series GT eDrive they feel the same feelings palesatesi with the BMW i3, the full electric Ethics. The car is lively and the draw length, at least up to 130 km/h is comparable to that of a turbo engine. Then the march becomes smooth and a bit ‘monotonous, but it’s a small price to pay to help save the planet. Pushing the throttle all the way, the engine starts to be noisy as you enter more than oxygen in the fuel cells, so that hydrogen can be transformed into electricity. A solvable problem, however, we were to get to mass produutonomy, according to data provided by the propeller, about 700 km. A distance not bad, was not that the number of coluction of the New 2016 BMW 5 Series Gran Turismo eDrive.

The motor brake of the BMW 5 Series Gran Turismo eDrive works just like that of a traditional petrol car. The fuel cells, although heavy, do not affect the road holding of the vehicle, being perfectly balanced with the rest of the power system. During braking, also the 2016 BMW 5 Series GT eDrive also recovers energy as the Formula 1. Compared to other green car tested, the Nissan Leaf, for example, this car has a hydrogen engine performance more “sports” (the quotes There seem mandatory). As written, it seems to be driving a BMW i3, the most aggressive among the full electric, but with greater autonomy.
