The BMW i3s traction control system is getting a standard system in all upcoming BMW and Mini cars. According to the carmaker, the system significantly increases traction and driving stability.
That’s especially true in adverse weather and road conditions – “when pulling away, in brake energy recuperation and when accelerating out of tight corners”, the carmaker states. The innovation is especially created for the instantaneous power deliver of the BMW eDrive system. Used for the first time in the new BMW i3s, the system features a 50-times-faster routine due to shortened signal paths.
“With their high levels of torque and instantaneous responses to every movement of the accelerator, electric motors already make significantly higher demands on driving stability systems than conventional power units, ” states Peter Langen, head of chassis development at BMW.
