Uncompromising range comfort.

For us, freedom means boundless mobility. Fortunately, the times in which the purely electric range was just far enough to reach the nearest supermarket have now come to an end. Increasingly efficient high-voltage batteries make electrified driving more than fit for everyday use and in fact suitable for every lifestyle. And thanks to the continuously expanding public charging network of BMW Charging, you not only have charging stations from a wide range of operators in cities at your disposal but also high-power charging stations exclusively for your BMW electric car on motorways. Ultimately, the world is open to those who think sustainably – and from now on also to those who wish to travel sustainably. Join us to explore the world of range comfort for BMW electric and plug-in hybrid vehicles.

On the previous evening, you connected your BMW 5 Series Sedan 530e plug-in hybrid with the BMW Wallbox to charge up and set the precise time at which you want to take off to work. Thanks to the “preconditioning” process, your domestic mains electricity is used to adjust the temperature of the interior and the battery while the vehicle is still charging from your BMW Wallbox. This means your vehicle is ideally prepared for the journey, and you have its full range at your disposal. While you are at work, you can conveniently find a public charging station in the vicinity with the digital services from BMW Charging or use the AC charging option with the BMW charging cable provided by your employer. From time to time, you can check the charging and vehicle status of your plug-in hybrid at any time via the ConnectedDrive App. Back at home at the end of the working day, you simply reconnect your BMW 530e Sedan to the BMW Wallbox and enjoy the rest of the evening – while looking forward to that next locally emission-free trip to work.

  • What factors affect the high-voltage battery of my BMW electric car and plug-in hybrid?
    BMW e-mobility BMW Range FAQ

    One important external factor influencing the performance and capacity of a battery is the temperature. As you probably know from your mobile phone battery, the performance is restricted in cold and hot temperatures. In your vehicle, however, this temperature influence is largely minimised by means of optimised operating strategies. And did you know know that the capacity also yields information on the range you may have? Apart from temperature, other influential factors are devices in use, such as the air conditioning, the load carried and your driving style.

  • What is the best possible way to prepare my BMW electric car and my plug-in hybrid for the next journey?

    In order to get the maximum out of your vehicle from the outset, it is advisable to precondition the battery and vehicle interior. As cooling and heating require electric energy, this process should be carried out while the vehicle is still charging. To do this, simply set the desired departure time and conditioning requirements using the ConnectedDrive App or in the menu of the vehicle itself. When the time comes to depart, the battery will then have attained the ideal operating temperature and the climate of the interior will also be at an optimum.

  • How does my driving style affect the range of my BMW electric car and plug-in hybrid?

    As is the case for a vehicle with a conventional propulsion system, driving style also affects the range in an electric car. As a general rule, an anticipatory, relaxed and uniform style of driving optimises your range. If, for example, you reduce your speed on the motorway from 130 km/h to 110 km/h, you can noticeably increase your range. During recuperation, that means whenever you lift your foot from the accelerator pedal, kinetic energy is converted into electrical energy and fed into the battery – and as a result you gain further kilometres in range.

Fuel consumption and CO2 emissions.

BMW 3 Series Sedan plug-in hybrids:

Fuel consumption in l/100 km (combined): 2.2
CO2 emissions in g/km (combined): 50

BMW 5 Series Sedan plug-in hybrids:
Fuel consumption in l/100 km (combined): 2.3
CO2 emissions in g/km (combined): 53

BMW X5 xDrive45e:
Fuel consumption in l/100 km (combined): 2.5
CO2 emissions in g/km (combined): 56

BMW 740Le Sedan:
Fuel consumption in l/100 km (combined): 2.8
CO2 emissions in g/km (combined): 6.5


The values of fuel consumptions, CO2 emissions and energy consumptions shown were determined according to the European Regulation (EC) 715/2007 in the version applicable at the time of type approval. The figures refer to a vehicle with basic configuration in Germany and the range shown considers optional equipment and the different size of wheels and tires available on the selected model.

The CO2 efficiency specifications are determined according to Directive 1999/94/EC and the European Regulation in its current version applicable. The values shown are based on the fuel consumption, CO2 values and energy consumptions according to the NEDC cycle for the classification.

For further information about the official fuel consumption and the specific CO2 emission of new passenger cars can be taken out of the „handbook of fuel consumption, the CO2 emission and power consumption of new passenger cars“, which is available at all selling points and at
