Pioneering the drive of the electric revolution, BMW offers an extensive range of electric cars across Plug-In hybrid (PHEV) as well as the solely electric formats. Plug-In Hybrid vehicles are the stepping stone breaching the standard combustion engine and a zero emissions future.
The Plug-In Hybrid vehicles are fitted with a combustion engine and a small electric motor allowing distances 30 miles per hour to be driven without any fuel. They allow a greater distance to be driven emission free, and customers are switching to reap the added benefit of lower running costs, reduced emissions, and an exceptional driving experience. The Plug-In Hybrid can operate just using electric power, just the conventional engine or a combination of both, where extra power for motorway driving maybe needed as acceleration occurs.
Through the use of BMW Efficient Dynamics, the Plug-In Hybrid delivers the perfectly responsive drive. The large battery pack, once fully charged, supports the electric motor charge before the combustion engine has to turn on to help power the car.
More and more people are choosing to switch towards the Plug-in Hybrid models as they offer environmental, practical and cost saving benefits.
All BMW Hybrid models are classed as ‘ultra-low emission vehicles’ with CO₂ emissions of less than 62 g/km to 27 g/km depending on model. When driving in electric mode, has zero emissions whatsoever, which is far better for the environment. In addition, it’s easy to charge with ‘green energy’ from your home or work or at one of can be supplemented by the 1000’s of charging stations around the UK.
