Battery-powered assistance or pure electric driving? Whichever one you are looking for, we stock a selection of BMW i models, allowing drivers to find their perfect driving solution. Sustainable engineering marks a new era in sustainable mobility, so you can enjoy driving without having an impact on the world around you. Make the change to electric and discover a better way of driving.
Travel on purely electric power alone with a battery-powered vehicle, which requires charging before you set off on your journey.
The BMW electric models include:
Enjoy the best of both a battery-powered motor for assistance or pure electric driving with a Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicle (PHEV).
The BMW PHEV models include:
Hybrid vehicles have both a conventional engine and a pure electric motor, and they switch between the two for a limited distance.
Mild Hybrid vehicles have a conventional engine as well as a small electric motor, which helps improve efficiency.
Electric and hybrid vehicles both use electricity to reduce emissions and minimise their carbon footprint. Plug-in Hybrid vehicles (PHEVs) are similar to HEVs, as they both have an electric motor and an internal combustion engine. The differences being that PHEV batteries can be charged by plugging into an outlet. All-electric vehicles, on the other hand, have an electric battery instead of an internal combustion engine, so all you have to do is plug it in, charge and drive off.
The average mileage for UK drivers is approximately 8,000 miles per year, which is 22 miles per day or 7 miles per journey. On one full charge, the BMW i3 120Ah can go between 182-188 miles, which is the same as driving from London to Brighton, and back again. With over 5,000 public charging stations and counting in the UK, there is more accessibility to charging points than ever before.
Most of the advantages of electric vehicles (EV) are obvious, one of which is the impact it has on the environment. Engines powered by electricity don’t give off emissions, which means they are emission-free. EVs can make you save money in the long term, thanks to lower maintenance costs and fuel costs. The government also offers incentives for driving electric-powered vehicles like the plug-in grant for low emission cars. The grant contributes 35% of the purchase price of up to £3,500 towards the cost of a plug-in vehicle eligible for the scheme.
