FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

  • What is a plug-in hybrid vehicle (PHEV)?

    A plug-in hybrid vehicle (PHEV) has a combustion engine and an electric motor that can be recharged via a cable. Both are able to propel the vehicle independently or as a combination.

  • How does a plug-in hybrid vehicle work?

    Plug-in hybrid vehicles combine a conventional combustion engine with an electric motor. Intelligent interplay between the two saves fuel, lowers exhaust emissions, and provides an exceptional driving sensation. On journeys up to approx. 40km/h, a plug-in hybrid generally runs on pure electric power - provided that it makes sense, such as in urban areas. For maximum efficiency in different driving situations, such as on longer journeys or rapid acceleration, it uses the combined power of the electric motor and the combustion engine. If the battery which powers the electric motor has no charge, the vehicle will solely rely on the combustion engine.

  • What is the (electric) range of a plug-in hybrid vehicle?

    This depends on the size of the battery. In the case of a BMW, the maximum electric range is between 20 and 60 kilometers*, depending on the model. The overall range achieved by combining the combustion engine is of course significantly higher.

    *These are provisional values

  • How is a plug-in hybrid vehicle charged?

    With a standard charging cable, plug-in hybrid vehicles can be charged from a conventional 3-pin socket. For a faster charge, you can use a charging station or a Wallbox. The BMW i Wallbox is equipped with its own charging cable. For public charging stations, a “public AC charging cable” with the “Type 2” plug on both ends will be required.

  • Can a plug-in hybrid vehicle be charged during its journey?

    Yes, it can. A BMW plug-in hybrid can regain part of its energy when braking (recuperation). Charging can also take place during the journey with a function known as ‘Battery Control Mode'. This mode maintains the charge of the high-voltage battery at the desired level constantly or increases it to the preset value by having the electric motor function as a generator. With that, for example, it will be possible to use Battery Control Mode during a journey on the expressway to protect or even increase the electric power reserves so that a subsequent urban route can be covered.

  • How do the ranges differ between plug-in hybrid vehicles and electric cars?

    A plug-in hybrid vehicle has a lower electric range than an electric car, but a greater overall range. Assuming that the vehicle is sufficiently charged, the purely electric range of BMW plug-in hybrids lies between approx. 20 and 60 kilometers*, depending on the model. For most everyday users, this is entirely sufficient when  combined with the range from the combustion engine.

     

    *These are provisional values

  • Do I have to select petrol or electric mode?

    Drivers have the option to change this manually using the eDrive buttons on the centre console.

  • Will a plug-in hybrid save me money?

    Plug-in hybrid vehicles offer cost savings when it comes to recharging (in comparison to refueling). However, there are various costs involved with car ownership, maintenance, and purchase – so any cost savings will depend on the use of the vehicle.

PREREQUISITE FOR CLAIMS:
  • The vehicle has been driven correctly and maintenance must be performed at a BMW Authorised Dealership in accordance with the manufacturer's specifications.
  • This shall not be treated as a preventive replacement warranty policy. Only confirmed faulty modules will be replaced as per BMW diagnostic protocol, technical findings, etc.
  • The vehicle must be regularly charged to ensure the hybrid batteries are fully functional in order to provide driving pleasure to the customer.
