THE RANGE OF BMW ELECTRIC CARS AND PLUG-IN HYBRIDS.

THE RANGE OF BMW ELECTRIC CARS AND PLUG-IN HYBRIDS.

Uncompromising range comfort.

For us, freedom means boundless mobility. Fortunately, the times in which the purely electric range was just far enough to reach the nearest supermarket have now come to an end. Increasingly efficient high-voltage batteries make electrified driving more than fit for everyday use and in fact suitable for every lifestyle. And thanks to the continuously expanding public charging network of BMW Charging, you not only have charging stations from a wide range of operators in cities at your disposal but also high-power charging stations exclusively for your BMW electric car on motorways, e.g. those of our partner IONITY in Europe. Ultimately, the world is open to those who think sustainably – and from now on also to those who wish to travel sustainably. Join us to explore the world of range comfort for BMW electric and plug-in hybrid vehicles. *European model shown. Electric range may vary based on driving habits and other factors.

ON HOLIDAY WITH YOUR BMW ELECTRIC CAR!

You’ve chosen your holiday destination, the suitcases are packed and your BMW iX with its purely electric range of more than 475 km (BMW AG predicted estimated range, based on WLTP methodology. Official EPA range test results are not currently available) is standing in your driveway ready for action. In order to get the optimum out of your electric car from the outset, you have already prepared the interior and the battery for the journey using the My BMW App* or the settings in the vehicle menu. Thanks to the “preconditioning” process, your domestic mains electricity is used to adjust the temperature of the interior and battery while the vehicle is still charging from your BMW Wallbox. The route ahead assistant and the BMW Intelligent Personal Assistant help you to optimise and increase the range while driving. “Hey BMW. How can I increase my range?” Alongside external environmental factors such as the outside temperature, your personal driving style also affects the efficiency of the high-voltage battery in your vehicle and hence your available range. A generally anticipatory and uniform driving style allows you to extract the maximum from your battery. Once arrived at your charging stop, you unlock and charge your BMW iX easily and conveniently via your BMW Charging Access. At an IONITY high-power charging station, for example, you will have attained the charge level of 80% for optimum battery life after less than 40 minutes thanks to 200 kW charging power. Y You can now continue to your destination, completely free of exhaust fumes and local emissions. *European model shown. Electric range may vary based on driving habits and other factors.

COMMUTING WITH YOUR BMW PLUG-IN HYBRID!

On the previous evening, you connected your BMW 5 Series Sedan 530e plug-in hybrid with the BMW Wallbox to charge up and set the precise time at which you want to take off to work. Thanks to the “preconditioning” process, your domestic mains electricity is used to adjust the temperature of the interior and the battery while the vehicle is still charging from your BMW Wallbox. This means your vehicle is ideally prepared for the journey, and you have its full range at your disposal. While you are at work, you can conveniently find a public charging station in the vicinity with the digital services from BMW Charging or use the AC charging option with the BMW Chargin charging cable provided by your employer. From time to time, you can check the charging and vehicle status of your plug-in hybrid at any time via the My BMW App*. Back at home at the end of the working day, you simply reconnect your BMW 530e Sedan to the BMW Wallbox and enjoy the rest of the evening – while looking forward to that next locally emission-free trip to work.

HOW TO: MAXIMIZE THE RANGE OF YOUR PHEV.

FAQ: THE MOST IMPORTANT QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS ON RANGE.

  • What factors affect the high-voltage battery of my BMW electric car and plug-in hybrid?
    BMW e-mobility BMW Range FAQ

    One important external factor influencing the performance and capacity of a battery is the temperature. As you probably know from your mobile phone battery, the performance is restricted in cold and hot temperatures. In your vehicle, however, this temperature influence is largely minimised by means of optimised operating strategies. And did you know know that the capacity also yields information on the range you may have? Apart from temperature, other influential factors are devices in use, such as the air conditioning, the load carried and your driving style.

  • What is the best possible way to prepare my BMW electric car and my plug-in hybrid for the next journey?

    In order to get the maximum out of your vehicle from the outset, it is advisable to precondition the battery and vehicle interior. As cooling and heating require electric energy, this process should be carried out while the vehicle is still charging. To do this, simply set the desired departure time and conditioning requirements using the My BMW App* or in the menu of the vehicle itself. When the time comes to depart, the battery will then have attained the ideal operating temperature and the climate of the interior will also be at an optimum.

  • How does my driving style affect the range of my BMW electric car and plug-in hybrid?

    As is the case for a vehicle with a conventional propulsion system, driving style also affects the range in an electric car. As a general rule, an anticipatory, relaxed and uniform style of driving optimises your range. If, for example, you reduce your speed on the motorway from 130 km/h to 110 km/h, you can noticeably increase your range. During recuperation, that means whenever you lift your foot from the accelerator pedal, kinetic energy is converted into electrical energy and fed into the battery – and as a result you gain further kilometres in range.

  • What happens if my navigation destination is outside the electrical range?

    If your navigation destination is outside of the electric range, a charging option is automatically added to your route or alternatively you get suggestions for relevant charging stops.*


    *The availability varies depending on the model and equipment.
