eHot Rodding: Improving the BMW ActiveE

It may have seemed to some that a big BMW tuner and team such as Turner would obtain an electric known as the ActiveE. Despite it fun to drive. the car as it stands is leased by limited numbers and in limited Furthermore, the ActiveE is about as as a BMW can get; it’s relatively lacks the sport suspension, seats, and a proper transmission.

Why Turner bother with it?

and development to stay ahead of the on the street and on the race track. The is basically a test vehicle for a continuation of the MINI E project. replacement will no doubt be the from the BMW i camp and Turner wants to be ready for it when it out.

Furthermore, the use of KERS in Formula with various diesels and hybrids Circuit de la Sarthe this weekend, prove that it s a matter of time before s own race cars will over-sized batteries in their

Since I drove this the Turner ActiveE has gained an in handling via Bilstein PSS10 and bigger wheels with tires from Will’s own 335i Sportline. The look was improved by the removal of the factory stickers and an addition of Genuine BMW grills. These subtle did a lot for the appearance and performance of the car. But I am forward to see what Turner will add next to this car

What could be next for the ActiveE?

You can dial in the amount of from the paddles, ranging “none”, “some”, and “a lot”. If you to eek out a bit more juice, head for a downhill section, tap the paddle to those brakes into and earn some more energy to make it home.

something like this be installed into the ActiveE? Retro-fitting OEM shifters would be easy and the rest is software magic. it may not improve range or acceleration all on its it would provide some extra the driver?

The reason why I keep writing this car, and why I am so interested in car specifically, is because I believe guys, Turner Motorsport, maybe the book on the new generation of automotive They have the experience, the know-how to start something new. The people who started the trend in the 1950s were, in a

They made slow cars faster and better is making a not-so-crappy but slow car utilizes new technology better, and faster.
