New: BMW 6 Series Coupe with Auto Start Stop function.
With effect from 2012, the top model of the 6 Series Coupe, the BMW 650i xDrive, will be equipped as standard with the Auto Start Stop function. Being an integral part of BMW EfficientDynamics measures, fuel consumption will be significantly reduced as a result. The engine is automatically switched off as soon as the vehicle comes to a halt at a red light, in a traffic jam or at a level crossing, for example. When the driver releases the brake, the engine restarts automatically, allowing the journey to be continued.
BMW should give us the choice of when we want to activate the Stop and Go function because it's annoying that I have to de-activate it everytime I start the car just like MB and Porsche.
