The Latest Tech at Your Fingertips
Stay connected to your plug-in hybrid at all times with the My BMW App**, which allows you to manage charging status, locate charging stations, pre-condition your vehicle prior to departure, and more right from your phone.
**The My BMW App is optimized with BMW vehicles from 2016 model year and newer in conjunction with the option BMW ConnectedDrive Services and a compatible smartphone. Available apps and services are subject to change, may vary by location or other factors. May require additional services, plans, subscriptions and vehicle options, and may only be operable in conjunction with certain smartphones and operating systems (smartphone not provided). Not all apps or services may be available for all BMW models.

What is a Plug-In Hybrid Electric Vehicle (PHEV)?
BMW Plug-In Hybrid Electric Vehicles combine the conventional BMW TwinPower Turbo combustion engine with an electric motor. This dual-drivetrain system works together to reduce exhaust emission and provide potential fuel savings without restricting range. Intuitive drive modes automatically optimize efficiency by selecting the ideal combination of electric and gas power on drives of any length. You can also choose to drive in fully electric mode within a certain range, or with the convenience of the combustion engine like a conventional BMW.
The electric range of a plug-in hybrid vehicle depends on the size of the battery, as well as the vehicle weight, aerodynamics, and tire type.
What factors affect the performance of the high-voltage battery in my plug-in hybrid?
One important external factor influencing the performance and capacity of a battery is temperature. As you know from your mobile phone battery, the performance is affected by cold and hot temperatures. This is why it is important, especially in winter, to “pre-condition” the vehicle while its charging from the My BMW App – in other words, to heat the battery and interior. Or, to cool them down in summer. This not only saves you energy for the journey, but it also enables an added measure of efficiency from the outset. Apart from temperature, other factors that can affect your range are air conditioning, load carried, and driving style.
Do you have to charge a Plug-In Hybrid Electric Vehicle?
Charging the battery of your Plug-In Hybrid Electric Vehicle using a Level 1 or Level 2 AC charger is highly recommended to maximize efficiency and power. Without charging, fully electric driving will be limited, and power reserves for the eBoost function will be much lower. For optimized efficiency, BMW recommends regular charging overnight.
BMW Plug-in Hybrids can also charge while driving. Regenerative braking allows the vehicle to regain part of its energy. In addition, charging can also take place during the journey with the function known as Battery Control Mode. This mode maintains the charge of the high-voltage battery constantly at the desired level or increases it to the pre-set value, by having the electric motor function as a generator. In this way, for example, it is possible to use Battery Control Mode during a drive on the highway to protect or even increase the electric power reserves so that a subsequent urban route can be covered with electric driving and without any local emissions.
Even if you don’t have time to catch a charge, your BMW will still get you where you need to go. When the battery is fully discharged, the BMW TwinPower Turbo engine automatically takes over.
Do plug-in hybrid vehicles require special maintenance?
BMW Plug-in Hybrid vehicles, including their high-voltage components, do not require any special or scheduled maintenance outside of the factory-scheduled maintenance recommended for all new BMW vehicles. In addition, BMW Canada Inc. provides a warranty for the high-voltage lithium-ion battery assembly against defects in materials or workmanship for a period of 8 years/128,000 kilometres, whichever occurs first.
