New soundscapes for pure-electric driving pleasure.

BMW IconicSounds Electric introduces new, diverse and emotionally rich soundscapes. They have been created as part of a collaboration between the BMW Sound Design Studio and Academy Award-winning composer Hans Zimmer. The new sounds embody the vehicles' design language by offering a holistic experience. The new sounds reflect the specific performance characteristics of the drive system on board and the signature attributes of an electrified BMW in a completely new yet wholly authentic way. The worlds of sound created by BMW IconicSounds Electric vary depending on the driving mode selected by the driver.
