THE RANGE OF ELECTRIC CARS.

CONVENIENT EVERYDAY DRIVING.

The range of an electric car provides versatility for everyday driving. BMW electric cars have high battery capacities, thanks to the use of innovative technologies. Clever technologies on board further optimise the car's range. Charge-optimised routes automatically take over charge planning on longer journeys.

ARRIVE RELAXED AT YOUR DESTINATION.

My BMW route planner

YOUR VERY OWN IN-VEHICLE ROUTE PLANNER.

The My BMW App takes over charging stop and route planning before longer journeys. Just enter your destination and the charge-optimised route planner will determine the best route including time-optimised charging stops for your electric car along the way. As a result, you'll always know how much time you need to factor in for a long journey and can set off stress-free with peace of mind. Even without your own BMW, the demo version gives you an idea of the features of the My BMW App. Simply download the app, log on and try it out.

Range circle display

EFFORTLESSLY KEEP AN EYE ON YOUR RANGE.

See at a glance how far you can still travel: a blue circle around your vehicle's actual location displays the current range as a radius on the map. This helps you to simply and effortlessly estimate how far you can currently travel without a charging stop.

Range of electric car tips

HOW TO INCREASE YOUR RANGE. HINTS AND IDEAS FOR ELECTRIC CARS.

You can do a number of things to maximise the range of your electric car. An anticipatory driving style is important, in particular when driving on motorways. Firstly, drive in an anticipatory manner on motorways and avoid heavy braking. Simply lift your foot off the accelerator, or apply moderate pressure to the brake. Cool or heat your electric car while it's still charging, and try to use the BMW Efficient Mode.

MAXIMUM RANGE WITH MINIMUM EFFORT.

Efficient Mode helpfully provides you with information about how to drive more efficiently. Have a look at the display: the power display has a blue background when you're driving efficiently. But it turns grey if you drive inefficiently. Should the remaining range start to look marginal, you can enable MAX RANGE mode and increase the remaining range by up to 20% with further efficiency measures.[1] You can also get a rough estimate of your current range from the coloured circle on the map in the My BMW App.

Consumption and CO2 emissions.

[1] Whilst we recommend the battery for this vehicle is charged to 80% to help optimise the life of your battery, the electric range figure shown is the WLTP figure after the battery had been fully charged to 100%. WLTP figures are shown for comparability purposes. Only compare fuel consumption, CO2 and electric range figures with other cars tested to the same technical procedures. These figures may not reflect real life driving results, which will depend upon a number of factors including the starting charge of the battery, accessories fitted (post-registration), variations in weather, driving styles and vehicle load.
