New direct traction control from BMW is 50 times quicker

New direct traction control from BMW is 50 times quicker

Last year BMW introduced the BMW i3s with a few upgrades that included an innovative traction control system to deliver instantaneous power. Fast forward to the present day, and BMW has just announced that the same system will find its way on to all internal combustion engine models in the current line-up (BMW & Mini). This will be regardless of the application being in the FWD, RWD or AWD form.

BMW emphasised that the new system will deliver “noticeably greater assurance and driving pleasure when road conditions make pulling away difficult.” The company claims that the new traction control has a 50 times faster routine than the mechanism it replaces, since the control process is now processed in the powertrain, unlike the remote unit in all conventional systems. 

BMW went on to specify that the new traction control also improves traction and driving stability “in active Brake Energy Regeneration phases, and when accelerating out of tight corners.” Peter Langen, head of chassis development, BMW, said, “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.”
