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

All-electric range is one of the most important questions asked of an electrified vehicle. This is why the team at BMW has dedicated so much time and effort in creating their own state-of-the-art eDrive technology, which is powered by efficient lithium-ion batteries and constantly pushing the boundaries on just how far our electric adventures can go. And thanks to the continuously expanding public charging network of BMW Charging, you not only have charging stations from a wide range of operators nationwide at your disposal but also high-power charging stations, e.g. those of our partner IONITY in Europe.

THE RANGE OF BMW ELECTRIC CARS AND PLUG-IN HYBRIDS.
  • What is the range of an electric car?

    The range of an electric car depends on the battery capacity of the vehicle. Most electric cars have a range of over 250 km, with the upcoming BMW iX3, for example, set to have a range over 460 km*. Although the current range of  BMW electric cars is already sufficient for the average user, it will continue to rise.

    *These are provisional values

  • How do the ranges differ between hybrid vehicles and electric cars?
  • Can the battery of an electric car be replaced to achieve a greater range?
  • What is a range extender and is it put to use in electric cars?
  • Is the range of an electric car adversely affected by sub-zero temperatures in winter or by heat?
  • What factors affect the high-voltage battery of my BMW electric car and plug-in hybrid?
  • What is the best possible way to prepare my BMW electric car and my plug-in hybrid for the next journey?
  • How does my driving style affect the range of my BMW electric car and plug-in hybrid?

HOW FAR CAN I GO?
