Why Choose a BMW All-Electric Vehicle

BMW offers several all-electric vehicles including the BMW iX SAV and i4 Gran Coupe. These two well-equipped vehicles have all-electric ranges of over 300 miles and speedy charging through Electrify America.

Drivers who choose an all-electric vehicle get to skip the gas station. These vehicles run on large batteries and electric motors. The batteries get their power from charging stations, and the speediest way to charge a fully-electric vehicle is at DC Fast-Charging Station. A 2022 BMW iX can add 90 miles of range in about 10 minutes. With a typical Level 2 charger that uses a 220 outlet, an all-electric BMW needs about 10 hours to achieve a full charge.

The benefit of a fully-electric vehicle is the power of the electric motor. The iX has dual motors that produce 516 horsepower with a 0 to 60 time of 4.4 seconds, because EVs don’t need transmissions. The BMW i4 comes with either a single electric motor on the rear axle with 335 horsepower or a pair of motors with 536 horsepower. The charging time for the i4 is about the same as the iX.

EV drivers appreciate the instant acceleration and nearly silent drive. BMW electric vehicles have an accelerator pedal and a brake pedal, but drivers can put the EVs into a one-pedal mode to use the regenerative braking feature.

Benefits of Driving BMW Plug-In Hybrids

Along with fully-electric vehicles, BMW also offers several plug-in hybrid electric vehicles. These vehicles offer the best of both worlds, as drivers get a limited amount of all-electric driving - between 20 and 30 miles of range - before the gas-powered combustion engine and transmission kick in.

BMW Plug-in Hybrids have smaller batteries than all-electric vehicles, so they only need a couple of hours on a Level 2 charger to achieve a full charge. Shoppers can choose from a 3 Series, 5 Series, and X5 with plug-in hybrid technology.
