If you’re running low on electric power, don’t worry. You have plenty of options when it comes to charging your BMW plug-in hybrid cars. The quickest and most convenient way is to use a charging point, whether that’s at home, at work or out on the go.
As you don’t rely on the electric motor, getting a charging point installed at home isn’t always necessary. This makes BMW PHEV cars ideal for those who aren’t able to install a charging point at home. E.g. if you live in a flat, or if you don’t have a drive or off-street parking.
Plug-in hybrid BMW cars also use an intelligent charging system, Battery Control Mode. This allows you to charge the battery without having to use a charging point, as the electric motor doubles up as a generator to produce charge. When on a longer motorway trip, Battery Control Mode may kick in to maintain and even add charge.
