At the same time, you can charge them inexpensively with the electricity tariff that is right for you.

ELECTRIC CAR MAINTENANCE COSTS.

You'll save on service and maintenance costs with an electric car. Unlike vehicles with a combustion engine, electric cars have fewer wearing parts. There is therefore no need to replace spark plugs, oil filters and cambelts. At the same time, you'll save on repair costs due to the fact that electric cars have no exhaust pipe or clutch. And there's no need to change the oil during an inspection. A service is around 30% cheaper than with a petrol or diesel vehicle, saving you time and money.

Fuel consumption and CO2 emissions.

BMW X5 xDrive30e: Fuel consumption, combined WLTP in l/100 km[1][3][4]: –; CO2 emissions, combined WLTP in g/km[1][3][4]: 26–18; Energy consumption, combined WLTP in kWh/100 km[1][3][4]: 27.0-22.9; Electric range, WLTP in km[1][2][3]: 94–110

BMW iX3: Energy consumption, combined WLTP in kWh/100 km[1]: 18.0–17.6; Electric range, WLTP in km[2]: 461–471


[1] Official data for fuel consumption, CO2 emissions, power consumption and electric range was determined in accordance with the prescribed measuring procedure and corresponds to European Regulation (EC) 715/2007 in the applicable version. For ranges, data determined as per WLTP takes into account any optional equipment (available on the German market in this case). For vehicles that have been newly type approved since 1 January 2021, only the official data according to WLTP exists. In addition, NEDC values are deleted from the certificates of conformity as of 1 January 2023 by EC regulation 2022/195. For more information about NEDC and WLTP measuring procedures visit www.bmw.com/wltp


Further information about fuel consumption and official model-specific CO2 emissions of new passenger cars can be found in the "Guideline for fuel consumption, CO2 emissions and electric power consumption for new passenger cars", available free of charge at all points of sale, at the Deutsche Automobil Treuhand GmbH (DAT), Hellmuth-Hirth-Str. 1, 73760 Ostfildern-Scharnhausen, Germany, and under https://www.dat.de/co2/.

[2] Range depends on various factors, in particular: individual driving style, route characteristics, outside temperature, heating/air conditioning, pre-conditioning.

[3] Performance data of petrol engines apply to vehicles using RON 98 fuel. Fuel consumption data apply to vehicles using reference fuels in accordance with EU Regulation 715/2007. Unleaded RON 91 and higher with a maximum ethanol content of 10% (E10) may also be used. BMW recommends RON 95 fuel. For high-performance automobiles, BMW recommends RON 98 fuel.

[4] For plug-in hybrid: Weighted, combined (EC AC Charge Weighted)

[5] Provisional figures; any missing figures were unavailable at the time of publication.

[6] The charging performance depends on the state of charge, ambient temperature, individual driving profile and use of auxiliary consumers. The ranges shown are based on the WLTP best case. The charging times apply to ambient temperatures of 23 degrees Celsius after a preceding drive and may differ depending on the usage behaviour.
