100% electric. 100% driving pleasure. 100% BMW.

Did you know that back at the Summer Olympic Games of 1972 held in Munich an all-electric BMW 1602e drove ahead of the athletes in the endurance events in order to film them and supply them with water as necessary? Emission-free and silent, it was the ideal companion at the time and did not obstruct the competitors in achieving their top performances. Today, almost five decades later, we have perfected this capability as well as our know-how in the field of electrified mobility through continuous development of the BMW eDrive technology and the BMW i sub-brand. With our all-electric models BMW iX, BMW i3 and BMW i3s, you experience an entirely new sensation of sheer driving pleasure. After all, nothing compares with the feeling of gliding almost silently through urban or rural traffic, the instant response of the electric engine and unique acceleration from stand-still. And all of this is free of exhaust fumes and local emissions. Join us to explore the world of BMW electric cars.

  • What is an electric model?
    BMW e-mobility BMW electric model FAQ

    A purely electric model (BEV, Battery Electric Vehicle) drives exclusively with electricity and has no combustion engine to power the vehicle and the electricity is stored in a battery underneath the vehicle. Its capacity determines the range of the vehicle, in other words the distance that can be covered with one battery charge.
    Many drivers worry about the range – in most cases such worries are unfounded as the majority of drivers travel less than 100 kilometres per day.

    Purely electric models are ideal for users who can charge at work or at home. At the same time, the extension of the public charging infrastructure is being pursued intensively and new charging stations are therefore appearing all the time in urban areas and along highways. In the future, long-distance journeys will become easier and easier as a result.

  • What advantages does an electric model have?
  • What factors affect the performance of the high-voltage battery in my electric model?

    As you probably have experienced with your mobile phone, temperature can affect battery performance. In your vehicle, however, your battery performance is much less affected by ranging temperatures when you take steps to pre-condition your vehicle.  Other factors that can affect your range are air conditioning, load carried, and driving style.
