DRIVING RANGE Experience a plug-in hybrid without compromise.
With both an electric motor and a gasoline engine, you get the best of both worlds: Pure electric for day-to-day driving, plus a powerful gasoline engine for longer trips. In other words, BMW Plug-in Hybrid Vehicles can be fully electric, fully gasoline or a thrilling combination of both.
During stop-and-go-driving, around town and on your daily commute, the gasoline engine may never start when in electric mode. You can even drive in pure EV mode at highway speeds. And for stronger acceleration, the electric motor can boost the gasoline engine for impressive performance from a stop or when merging into traffic.

With regular overnight charging at home, you’ll enjoy better overall mileage and fewer trips to the gas station.
With available federal tax credits* and local incentives, not to mention saving on fuel, your overall ownership costs can be much lower than with a similar gasoline-powered vehicle. You even have the peace of mind of an 8-year/80,000-mile limited warranty on the PHEV battery.** You can also save on time since in California, your BMW PHEV is eligible for HOV lane access with a single occupant.
Plug in at home, at work or in the thousands of available public charging stations.* But keep in mind that even if you can’t, the TwinPower Turbo engine in your BMW PHEV will take you where you want to go, free of “range anxiety.”
Of course, there’s a lot to be said for waking up every morning with a “full tank” of electric power. Just as you plug in your smartphone at night, your BMW PHEV will be most efficient if it’s charged overnight.

**Charging from empty to 100% using a Level 2 (240 volt) charger with 32A service. Charging times are approximate. Colder ambient temperatures can make it slightly longer to charge. Colder temperatures also mean PHEVs are less efficient.
Depending on your vehicle, you can achieve a full charge in 3 to 7 hours.**
