隨著 4G、甚至 5G 時代來臨,不只豪華品牌,還有越來越多一般品牌在全球陸續提供車輛遠端行車資訊與遠端控制 App,強調車輛與人手一機的智慧手機/平板連結。而身為德國豪華品牌的 BMW,最早是在 2013 年推出 BMW i Remote App、並後續改版為 BMW Connected App 來讓更多品牌旗下車款能應用,集團旗下的 Mini 品牌也推出功能相似的 Min Connected App 來強化智慧連結體驗。

不過,目前國內 BMW 品牌旗下車款的 ConnectedDrive 互聯駕駛套件較為完整,而且也能自 iOS 與 Android 兩大系統的商店下載 BMW Connected App 啟用相關遠端遙控功能;國內 Mini 品牌,則是近期於 2020 年下半年才正式搭載智能緊急求助、遠距售後服務共 2 項簡易的 Mini Connected 智慧互聯駕駛功能,國內 Mini 尚未有 Mini Connected App 可供兩大系統智慧型手機下載。

國內 Mini 目前僅部分車型,搭載 Mini Connected 智能緊急求助功能與遠距售後服務。

My BMW App 最主要的變化,在於將操作介面變的更為簡潔、易用、直觀,但也加入幾項新功能。首先是車輛的 Remote Software Upgrade、也就是遠端軟體更新,車主可透過 My BMW App 通知是否車輛有最新的 iDrive 7.0 軟體可更新,並且可遠端設定車輛先下載更新軟體,藉此節省更新軟體的時間。

除此之外,My BMW App 在搭配 iDrive 7.0 車輛之下,若車主有 Amazon 帳戶並在車輛上完成連結,就能在車上使用 Amazon Alexa 智慧語音助理,車主可透過聲控喊出「Alexa」喚醒詞、或按下方向盤的聲控按鈕,就能操作 Amazon Alexa 聲控助理。不過目前 Amazon Alexa 加入 iDrive 7.0 系統內的功能,僅在德國、奧地利、西班牙、英國提供,2021 年 3 月會開放更多國家加入。

改版後的 My BMW App 與 My Mini App,也針對品牌旗下的純電動車、PHEV 插電式油電混合車的遠端資訊顯示介面調整,包含純電可續航里程、電量、充電歷史紀錄的界面都更為一目了然。改版後車主還可遠端替車輛設定充電時間、或充電溫度控制器,讓車輛在特定時間或溫度就能先行停止充電。另外也可遠端開啟車輛空調,先行在上車前讓車內的溫度先行降溫或升溫,帶來更佳的舒適度。

改版後車主還可遠端替電氣化車輛設定充電時間、或充電溫度控制器,讓車輛在特定時間或溫度就能先行停止充電。

另外,My BMW 在部分市場也提供全新的 BMW Points 機制,當車主駕駛 BMW PHEV 插電式油電混合車的純電行駛里程越多,就能透過 BMW Charging 合作的充電樁服務獲得更多次的免費充電時數,這項功能目前在比利時、德國、法國、奧地利、荷蘭、瑞士率先提供。另外,My BMW 也可搭配 BMW ID 更快登入,除了傳統的帳號密碼登入 App,也可透過掃描車輛的 QR Code 快速登入,使用者也能透過 App 客製化設定車主帳號的圖示。

To say the front grille of the BMW 4-Series has split opinions would be an understatement and despite the controversial looks, the automaker is sticking with it. However, BMW head of exterior design Christopher Weil has revealed that he doesn’t mind if customers decided to change the looks of the car, including the oversized kidney grille.

During a recent interview with members of the Australian media prior to the local launch of the new 4-Series, Weil revealed that BMW wanted to differentiate it further from the 3-Series and give it its own unique look.

“We wanted to divide the 4 Series more from the 3 Series… they were very much the same – let’s say in design expression, and now we wanted to split up the characters,” he told Cars Guide. “The 4 Series, in our aim, should be more expressive, more progressive and also more elegant than the 3 Series. They are two different cars addressing two different sorts of customers, that was the aim whilst designing the car.”

According to Weil, pictures of the car and its enlarged kidney grille don’t do it justice and customers prefer it when viewed in the flesh. Nevertheless, he did offer his support for those looking to customize their cars.

“I like the idea of customizing – we see it in the motorcycle world, there’s a lot of customizing – and if people think ‘we can tune a car, we can make it different’ or they’re kind of styling the car to their own personality even more, of course they should do it,” he said. “We have certain offerings at BMW – they are very expressive pieces – or you can even put on aftermarket (parts), and great wheels and stuff like this, but even if people go somewhere else and customize the car, it’s fine with me, I think it’s cool.”

A study conducted by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s Air Enforcement Division has revealed the full scope of aftermarket emission defeat devices used by diesel vehicle owners across the country.

In the report, the AED estimates that emissions controls have been removed from more than 550,000 diesel pickups in the last decade. The removal of these systems will produce more than 570,000 tons of excess oxides of nitrogen and 5,000 tons of excess particulate matter over the lifetime of these vehicles.

It’s important to note that the report relates specifically to class 2b and class 3 diesel pickups (those weighing between 8,501 lbs – 14,000 lbs) and not those that weigh less or more. All up, the AED says the 550,000 tampered trucks constitute approximately 15 per cent of the national population of diesel trucks that were originally certified with emissions controls systems. The excess nitrogen oxide produced by these trucks is the equivalent of adding more than 9 million additional diesel pickups to the U.S.’s roads.

While the Clean Air Act prohibits tampering with emissions controls, the EPA has found numerous companies and individuals manufacturing, selling, and installing hardware and software designed to defeat these controls. The most common way to defeat the controls are through simple software tunes that alter the engine’s software functions and calibrations. Many owners also fit straight-through exhaust systems, therefore removing the standard exhausts that feature aftertreatment systems.

The AED report also reveals that states without regular vehicle inspections have a higher percentage of diesel trucks with defeat devices. For example, as many as 18.6 per cent of North Dakota’s pickup truck fleet in 2016 is estimated to have defeat devices. Other states high up in the list include Idaho with 15 per cent, Wyoming with 14.2 per cent, Maine with 13.5 per cent, and Michigan with 13 per cent. At the bottom of the list is California with 1.8 per cent, hardly a surprise given its strict enforcement of emissions standards.
