Since 2011, BMW has been supporting Germany's largest marathon events as a strong partner of running. With the BMW BERLIN-MARATHON, the commitment to running reaches its peak: this is where the running elite from all over the world comes together to top the current marathon records.
Power. Endurance. Efficiency. These words not only describe BMW vehicles, but are also the most important characteristics when running. Efficiency is a fundamental principle for BMW, which is reflected in the iPERFORMANCE technology. A prime example of this is the electric BMW i3s. As the official guide vehicle, it leads the participants purposefully and environmentally friendly past the hotspots of the capital.
BMW is providing more than 70 vehicles and about 30 motorcycles for all marathons in order to guarantee a smooth process. The BMW i8 Coupé - with highly efficient BMW eDrive technology - will be a unique plug-in hybrid sports car that will accompany the runners as a safety car. BMW is thus not only continuing its long-standing commitment to running but is also emphasizing that sustainability and premium driving experience go hand in hand.
