With the biggest and most extensive upgrade in the history of BMW to date, more than 750,000 cars around the world receive the latest version of BMW Operating System 7 (version 07/20) in 2020. One of the key components of this system is the BMW Intelligent Personal Assistant with enhanced functions and a more emotive look and feel. This captivated Glock while taking a tour around Munich (GER), during which he completed various tasks using the connectivity features on board the BMW 330e (combined fuel consumption: 1.8 – 1.5 l/100 km; combined energy consumption: 14.8 – 13.9 kWh/100 km; combined CO2 emissions: 41 – 35 g/km). These features include the first ever cloud-based navigation system BMW Maps, eDrive zones designed specifically for electrified BMW cars, connected charging, Apple CarPlay® as well as the BMW Digital Key, which enables the car to be opened and started using a smartphone.

“I was a little sceptical about connectivity initially, because I’m still an old school kinda guy,” says Glock giving his verdict after the test. “But once I got to know the system, I have to say that it was a big help, particularly in the Munich traffic, because you can concentrate on the basics – on driving. That’s what ended up fascinating me.”

The video is available on various BMW Group and BMW Motorsport channels, as well as on Timo Glock’s social media platforms.
