If you’re looking to enjoy the best of both worlds, a Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicle (PHEV) is just the car you need. Offering both a combustion engine, powered either by petrol or diesel, and a battery-powered motor for assistance or pure electric driving, PHEVs provide a raft of specific benefits.
BMW Plug-in Hybrids are classed as ‘low emission vehicles’ with CO2 emissions of less than 55g/km and as low as 37g/km for the 330e Saloon. For shorter distances, pure electric mode** offers zero local emissions. What’s more, with the electric motor supporting the petrol engine, BMW PHEVs can achieve an impressives cost-saving fuel consumption of up to 235.4mpg***.
Low CO2 emissions ensure that savings can be made on your annual road tax or Benefit In Kind (BIK) company car tax. Electricity is also cheaper than petrol and diesel, so if you are able to regularly charge your car then on a cost per mile basis, a plug-in hybrid can be significantly cheaper to run.
BMW Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicles provide the flexibility of enjoying almost silent electric driving. Whilst the petrol-electric combination still offers typical BMW driving dynamics and efficient petrol power for longer journeys.
BMW Plug-in Hybrid models can be ordered in a wide range of model styles, colours and wheels, just like petrol and diesel equivalents. Only subtle hybrid references are noticeable.
Specific innovations for PHEV models include the ability to pre-heat or cool the car ahead of a journey, to enhanced navigation intelligence that optimises electric power and maximises fuel efficiency.
