BMW ELECTROMOBILITY: THE FUTURE IS NOW.Join us to explore the world of BMW electric cars and plug-in hybrids.

After almost five decades of research and development, we are taking the topic of sustainable and environmentally friendly mobility onto the road with a variety of electrified models. Alongside our all-electric models, such as the new BMW iX3 or the BMW i3 and BMW i3s, our fleet of plug-in hybrid vehicles, which is the largest on the automobile market, guarantees the best of both worlds for every lifestyle and every need. Impressive ranges and the all-round carefree package from BMW Charging make electrified driving and charging more flexible, convenient, straightforward and environmentally friendly than ever before. As an automobile manufacturer, we are committed to the goals of the Paris Climate Agreement and have the ambition to be the most successful and sustainable premium supplier for individual mobility. After all, for us sustainability is not a trend but a call to action.

Electromobility by BMW.

In order to provide the right answer for everyone, we at BMW have developed three different concepts for electrified and sustainable mobility: the electric car, the plug-in hybrid and the mild hybrid. In this way, we are creating a diverse and individually adjustable offer for all our customers, but we are also continuously improving the ecological balance sheet of our entire vehicle fleet at the same time.

100% electric driving pleasure: you have to have experienced the unique sensation of driving an electric car for yourself to really apprehend it. There is nothing to compare with the uncompromisingly direct and highly reactive response of the electric engine as soon as your foot presses the throttle, as well as the revolutionary acceleration characteristics, the extremely agile and dynamic driving behaviour. And the feeling of moving almost silently through the urban and rural traffic, as if floating on air. Discover a new and emotional driving experience with reliable feelings of elation and without any local emissions – regardless of where your path may guide you.

Maximum efficiency, supreme comfort and exclusive driving dynamics: this is what the BMW plug-in hybrids stand for. More versatile than any other type of vehicle, they combine the best of both worlds and, with their additional electric drive, bring individual variety and a local absence of emissions into your everyday life at the touch of a button. Experience the silent and purely electric drive through the city traffic while commuting, for example, as you simultaneously enjoy the familiar comfort and driving pleasure that accompanies the dynamic and sporty driving sensation of a true BMW.

Mild hybrid technology is used in vehicles with a classical combustion engine and is deployed to recover braking energy. To accomplish this, the kinetic energy during braking or even when the vehicle is freewheeling is converted into electrical energy, which is then stored in an additional battery. This stored energy can then be utilised to power the electrical systems of the vehicle and to support the combustion engine. Fuel consumption and CO2 decrease as a result while the intensified deceleration characteristics produce a noticeable benefit for the dynamics.

BMW Electromobility BMW Podcast Changing Lanes electric car plug in hybrid


“Changing Lanes” is the official podcast of BMW. In this episode we explain the differences between Plug-in hybrid, mild hybrid, fully electric cars and many more. We know it’s difficult to keep track of all the technologies when it comes to e mobility. That’s why we use this episode of “Changing Lanes” to explain what kinds of EVs exist, from PHEV all the way to fuel cell vehicles. So get ready to learn the main differences in charging, engine configuration and daily usage – so if you want to be up to date on how electric cars work, listen to our BMW podcast episode.

Fuel consumption and CO2 emissions.

  • BMW iX3(1):
    Fuel consumption in l/100 km (combined): 0
    CO2 emissions in g/km (combined): 0
    Electric consumption in kWh/100 km (combined): 17.8–17.5

    BMW 3 Series Sedan plug-in hybrids:
    Fuel consumption in l/100 km (combined): 2.0–1.5
    CO2 emissions in g/km (combined): 45–35
    Energy consumption in kWh/100 km (combined): 15.9–13.9

    BMW 5 Series Sedan plug-in hybrids:
    Fuel consumption in l/100 km (combined): 2.2–1.6
    CO2 emissions in g/km (combined): 50–36
    Energy consumption in kWh/100 km (combined): 15.6–13.8

    BMW 4 Series Coupé:
    Fuel consumption in l/100 km (combined): 6.1–3.9
    CO2 emissions in g/km (combined): 141–103

    The values of the vehicles labelled with (1) are preliminary.

    The information on fuel consumption, CO2 emissions and energy consumption has been determined in accordance with the prescribed measurement procedure VO (EU) 715/2007 in the version applicable at the time of type approval. The figures refer to a vehicle with basic configuration in Germany and the range shown considers optional equipment and the different size of wheels and tires available on the selected model.

    Further information about the official fuel consumption and the official specific CO2 emissions for new passenger automobiles can be found in the 'New Passenger Vehicle Fuel Consumption and CO2 Emission Guidelines', which are available free of charge at all sales outlets and from DAT Deutsche Automobil Treuhand GmbH, Hellmuth-Hirth-Str. 1, 73760 Ostfildern, Germany and on

    The values are already based on the new WLTP regulation and are translated back into NEDC-equivalent values in order to ensure the comparison between the vehicles. For vehicle related taxes or other duties based (at least inter alia) on CO2-emissions the CO2 values may differ to the values stated here.
