Episode 2: What are the benefits of owning BMW Electric Vehicle?

Welcome back to "Charging Ahead," our in-depth blog series designed to guide you through the world of electric vehicles (EVs). In our first installment, we introduced you to the essential tools and resources available to help you choose the perfect electric BMW. Now, in Part 2, we’ll delve into the many benefits of owning a BMW electric vehicle. From environmental impact to cost savings and advanced technology, there are plenty of reasons to make the switch to electric.


One of the most compelling reasons to own a BMW electric vehicle is the positive impact on the environment. Unlike traditional combustion engine cars, BMW electric models produce zero local emissions. This means that driving an electric BMW contributes to cleaner air in your local area and a healthier planet. By reducing your carbon footprint, you're playing a part in the global effort to combat climate change and improve urban air quality.


Switching to a BMW electric vehicle offers substantial cost savings. First and foremost, you'll save on monthly fuel costs. Electricity is generally cheaper than petrol and diesel, and with the availability of home charging options, you can further reduce your energy expenses. Additionally, electric vehicles have fewer moving parts compared to internal combustion engines. This means less wear and tear, fewer parts to replace, and consequently lower maintenance costs. Say goodbye to oil changes and complex engine repairs and oil services and enjoy a simpler, more cost-effective ownership experience.


Owning a BMW electric vehicle comes with the advantage of cutting-edge technology. The MyBMW App is a powerful tool that enhances your driving experience. With this app, you can easily check your battery status and estimated range, ensuring you’re always informed about your vehicle's readiness. It also helps you navigate to nearby charging stations, displaying real-time information on their availability and cost. Additionally, the app allows you to pre-condition your BMW i model while it is on charge at home, optimising its range and ensuring a comfortable temperature before you even step inside. This seamless integration of technology makes managing your electric BMW convenient and efficient.


One of the key concerns for prospective EV owners is charging availability. BMW addresses this with its extensive BMW Charging Network. With your BMW Charge Card, you gain access to over 700,000 charge points across Europe. This network ensures that you can travel long distances with peace of mind, knowing that a charging station is always within reach. The hassle-free access and widespread coverage of the BMW Charging Network make long road trips and daily commutes alike more convenient and stress-free.


BMW offers a diverse range of electric models to suit every lifestyle and preference. From the compact and agile BMW iX1 to the luxurious and spacious BMW i7, there’s a BMW electric vehicle for everyone. Whether you need a vehicle for city driving, family trips, or long-distance travel, the BMW i model range provides options that combine performance, efficiency, and style. Each model is designed to deliver the ultimate driving experience, with the added benefits of electric power.
