BMW e-mobility BMW plug in hybrid



The best of both worlds.

With their combination of a petrol and an electric engine, the BMW plug-in hybrids guarantee maximum flexibility and are therefore perfectly suited to the individual requirements and needs of your everyday life. The know-how from the all-electric BMW eDrive technology of the BMW i sub-brand permits purely electric ranges of more than 70 km* (depending on the model) – with the electric and locally emission-free drive system being ideally suited for urban traffic, the daily commute to work or the most extensive shopping trip. On longer journeys or also on motorways, you still continue to enjoy the convenient range of the combustion engine. Thanks to intelligent energy distribution, the BMW plug-in hybrid switches automatically between the drives according to needs and thus guarantees maximum efficiency at all times. The continuously increasing fleet of BMW hybrid vehicles with different models in the 3, 5, 7 and X series offers a maximum of variety and individuality for every lifestyle. Join us to explore the world of BMW plug-in hybrids and find precisely the model that suits you best!

  • What is a plug-in hybrid?
    BMW e-mobility BMW plug in hybrid FAQ

    A plug-in hybrid vehicle (PHEV, Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicle) combines a petrol engine, an electric engine and a high-voltage battery – and thus offers the best of two worlds. This allows a reduction in fuel consumption as well as CO2 emissions. Interaction between the two systems also offers additional performance and acceleration power.

    As its name suggests, a plug-in hybrid can be charged from a socket, a wallbox or at a public charging station. The maximum efficiency of a plug-in hybrid is achieved with a fully charged battery; which means that a charging facility should be available at home and at the workplace.

    The electric range for purely electric driving with fully charged battery in the case of a BMW 530e, for example, extends up to 43 kilometres*. As is the case with all vehicles that have a high-voltage battery, technological advances will also see the electric range increase further in the coming years. 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 for the electric range.

    As part of its “Power of Choice” strategy, BMW is offering its customers a large selection of plug-in hybrids as a conscious decision in favour of this particularly efficient drive system.

    A plug-in hybrid is ideal for drivers seeking the greatest possible versatility: on the one hand, it provides an electric drive for everyday use, such as the cost-optimised and sustainable commute to the office. Optimum use comes with regularly recurring medium-distance commutes, in which the electrically driven kilometres predominate. On the other hand, the vehicles offer maximum range and flexibility for long distances such as for the weekend excursion with the family.

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
