BMW xDrive Explained in Video

The news with the planning of the BMW German based carmaker of introducing the xDrive configuration on the rest of the M models, have been circulating on the web for more than a week now, and now it is time to tell you more about what the xDrive system is all about. But perhaps little words will be needed, as a video launched earlier today does the whole trick.

The xDrive system configuration is the all-wheel drive layout which sends the torque surplus at the opposite axle whenever the car senses slipping danger on the wheels. When the danger is sensed and the car starts slipping, the multi-plate clutch, which is electronically controlled, takes the vehicle back to the track.

The all-wheel drive layout uses a traction system according to which 40% of drive is sent to the front wheels,with the rest of 60% being pushed to the rear wheels, while the engine functions at its full potential.

2016 BMW M2 Might Receive an xDrive Version

After being caught on shots a couple of days ago, the 2016 BMW M2 is ending up in our news again, this time with some interesting news, according to which the model might receive an xDrive version, apart from the usual front-wheel configuration.

In case it will come with an all-wheel drive layout, the BMW M2 must shed some weight, finally standing at around 1530 kg, in order to cope with the new configuration and higher performance. The 2016 BMW M2 xDrive is also rumored to be first launched in the United States, at the beginning of 2016.

The 2016 BMW M2 will come with a lot of power as well, as the model will be equipped in its final version, with a 3.0-liter inline six-cylinder with direct injection, codenamed the S57 B30, and will produce around 370 horsepower. Mind that this 3.0-liter is not the same used on the M3 Sedan and M4 Coupe.

BMW M Models Will Receive AWD

Up until a couple of years ago we were used to seeing BMW models wearing the famous rear-wheel drive layout, but as technology progressed, so did the German based carmaker, which has adopted a different attitude towards drivetrain possibilities, and launched BMW cars with front-wheel drive layout, while also developing the all-wheel layout technology on its most powerful M models.

But why this decisive turn? The fast growing auto technology and performance as well as the heavy competition, has led to strict swifts in the company`s strategy, according to which at least the M5 and the M6 models will receive an xDrive version.

The AWD performance comes with a whole lot of advantages when driving on different road conditions or on bad weather conditions. It allows the driver to better handle and control the car in tight corners, on snowy conditions or other difficult situations.

BMW & Volkswagen Partner ChargePoint for More Car Fast-Charging Station Sites

The partnership between the network operator ChargePoint and the two major carmakers involve the building of more than 100 fast-charging station sites from one coast to another, meaning a complex network, which goes all the way from Boston to Washington, expanding to Interstate 95 and reaching the West Coasts via San Francisco, Los Angeles, as well as San Diego.

But who would actually benefit the ChargePoint station sites apart the BMW i3 electric and the Volkswagen e-Golf? Well, apart from the two electric vehicles, the Chevrolet Spark EV will also benefit these charging stations. To make things easier, these stations will be stationed every 50 miles, so if your car`s mile range is under 100 miles, this should prove very effective.
