When the breakthrough of electric cars is on the table, a comment like this is guaranteed to appear in the posts: “I drive diesel, I roll 1000-1200 kilometers with a tank. Until an electrician knows this, I don’t care! ”
Surveys show that few motorists travel this distance per day, but for those in this group, this is a legitimate argument that is difficult to argue with.
Now an English BMW owner has shown in practice what it is all about. His car is a two-ton, high-end model with all the extras available, a fresh BMW 730d with a six-cylinder, three-liter diesel engine coded B57.
Although this is the entry level for the 7, the 265 horsepower and 400 Nm of torque are perfectly sufficient for dynamic traction, with remarkably low fuel consumption. How low? The creator of the video Joe Achilles sat behind the wheel of a refueled BMW at dawn and drove 78 liters of diesel until late at night. He traveled 1,448 kilometers, and not even slowly, at an average speed of 112 km / h, so his consumption came to a disgraceful value for small cars at the end of the day, with the Bavarian flagship consuming just 5.4 liters of diesel per kilometer.
Obviously, when driving in an urban, everyday traffic jam, this value changes differently, but this tour proves that for those who use their car on long roads and highways, a fuel-efficient diesel can still be a serious alternative to even plug-in hybrids.
Consumption does not jump when the number of electrically kilometers expires, and when discharged, it does not carry an unnecessary ballast battery pack.
