10 Chapman BMW

Emission Free With Plenty of Power

Choose one of the electric, hybrid or plug-in hybrid BMW models from Chapman BMW and you’ll receive the most advanced electric propulsion system available. Known simply as eDrive, the modern power system delivers both impressive performance and fuel savings, but also has zero emissions when driven in the pure electrical state. By developing a totally new motor and transmission system, the engineers at BMW have created an engine with a lot of torque that remains the same whether you are just leaving your garage or have reached highway speeds. This provides surprising agility and a pleasant driving experience when maneuvering through a crowded city or taking your BMW out on the open highway. Inspect the new BMW inventory of electric vehicle options at Chapman BMW.

Powerful Batteries Benefit From Cooling

The lithium-ion high performance battery that comes in all BMWs equipped with eDrive benefits from a high-tech cooling system that lets the battery remain at a prime temperature to both receive and hold a charge. This not only increases the performance of the battery, but also increases its life expectancy. Because the BMW eDrive uses both intelligent energy management and brake regeneration to produce an electrical charge, the range of electric and hybrid BMWs has increased significantly. Utilize one of more than 28,000 charging stations in the U.S., or just plug your vehicle into a 220V socket at home to bring the charge back to the top.

There is an “I” in BMW

Although there may be no “I” in team, there definitely is one in BMW, and that “I” is paving the way for future electric technology. Both the i3 and i8 have not only exceeded expectations in sales, but are also providing a testing ground for the company to increase both range and power. BMW i is the brainchild of the BMW EfficientDynamics group. First released in 2013, the i3 and i8 are built for a changing world where traffic congestion is a normal part of life. The day where these cars not only provide an emission-free travel experience, but also communicate with each other is not far away. You can get onboard the “I” train now by taking a trip to Chapman BMW.

iPerformance Leading the Parade to Lower Emissions

Whether you choose the 330e, 740e or X5 xDrive40e, the new electric and hybrid models from BMW are helping to clean the air and save the planet. For the hybrid and plug-in hybrid models, a small gas engine works in concert with the electric eDrive motor to provide instant acceleration, ensuring you get the same pleasure driving these vehicles as you would any other BMW.


Don’t Need to be Rich to Enjoy Luxury

Although it’s true that luxury car companies like BMW offer vehicles that cost north of $100K, you don’t need to be a hedge fund manager to enjoy all the sophistication that comes with owning an ultimate driving machine. The BMW 2-Series starts at just a bit above $30,000 and offers many of the features of its much more expensive siblings. Offered in a coupe and convertible, the 2-Series has the same quality craftsmanship and attention to detail that makes BMW one of the most honored brand names in the world. Swing by Chapman BMW and take a spin to see just how much luxury you can afford.

Powerful Engine Works With Intelligent Chassis

Once you get past the beauty of the exterior design and the rich atmosphere of the cabin, you’ll enjoy driving a BMW 2-Series as much as any other car in their lineup. The standard 4-cylinder engine comes equipped with a twin turbocharger to generate 248 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque. Step up to the M240i Coupe (remember, “M” stands for motorsports) and you get the 3.0L inline 6 cylinder that also comes with twin turbochargers. This motor really gets after it by producing 335 horsepower. A driving mode selector lets you choose between a more comfortable ride and a tuned suspension that will straighten out curves like a hot iron. Adaptive M suspension comes with the M240i and is available on the base model. The rear dampers and front struts constantly adapt to your driving style and road conditions. A special track handling package lets you adjust the suspension on the fly to your mood.

Get the Wind in Your Hair with 2-Series Convertible

Whether you choose the more sedate 230i or the wicked M240i, the BMW 2-Series convertible will put a smile on your face. Designed to push the limits of sensible fun, imagine yourself tooling up the coast highway with your sunglasses on, tunes cranked up and hair blowing in the breeze. Just as the coupe delivers a sensational driving experience, the convertible has BMW’s near-perfect 50/50 weight distribution to help keep you in charge when the curves get tight. When Mother Nature dictates the top needs to be up, the sound-reducing material keeps the outside noises out and lets you enjoy the quiet sophistication of your sound system. Changing from an open-air roadster to a closed top just takes 22 seconds at speeds up to 30 mph. Whether you’re a convertible person or prefer a nice hard top, check out the entire BMW 2-Series inventory at Chapman BMW.
