WHAT IS A PLUG-IN HYBRID?

The best of both worlds

Everyone as of lately is talking about electric vehicles, but not as many consumers know about plug-in hybrid options. A plug-in hybrid provides drivers with the best of both worlds, with access to both electric and gasoline power. A plug-in hybrid vehicle (PHEV) has both a combustion engine and an electric motor. Each one is capable of powering the vehicle on its own. Plug-in hybrids use regenerative braking as their energy source, but they can also be plugged in to recharge the battery. Many PHEV owners can already manage most of their trips on electricity because daily commutes are generally less than 30 miles. It depends on how much you pay for electricity, but you will likely be saving a great deal. If the electric charge is depleted, then the combustion engine takes over, so you don’t have to worry about finding a charging station.

BMW PLUG-IN HYBRID ON SHORT COMMUTES

When you drive a BMW plug-in hybrid, you get to experience an all-electric drive around town, on your daily commute, or during stop-and-go driving without having to use your gas engine. With an all-electric range up to 30 miles, a BMW plug-in hybrid is perfect for short commutes.

BMW PLUG-IN HYBRID ON LONG COMMUTES

The combustion engine and electric motor can work independently or together for impressive performance and freedom from range anxiety. With a combined range of 400 miles with combined gas and electric and over 35,000 level 2 chargers nationwide, a BMW plug-in hybrid is perfect for your road trips and of course any longer commute over 30 miles.

BMW PLUG-IN HYBRID – ELECTRIC BY DESIGN

Sustainability doesn’t stop at the engine in a BMW plug-in hybrid. Your Ultimate Driving Machine is designed with technology and innovation to further deliver the ultimate electric machine. With a digital link to your charge status, you can stay connected to your plug-in hybrid at all times with your My BMW App. Inside your BMW plug-in hybrid, you can view information like charge status, full-electric or combined driving ranges, electric motor output, and more in an exclusive style with the hybrid-specific Digital Instrument Cluster.

BMW CHARGING

WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF A PLUG-IN HYBRID?
