OUR PLUG-IN HYBRID CARS.

A plug-in hybrid is propelled by both an electric motor and a combustion engine, thus combining the best of both worlds. In this way, the combustion engine can be employed on motorways and the electric motor can take over in built-up areas. It ensures that both technologies are used to maximum efficiency. As is the case with an electric car, the battery can be supplied with power and charged from a socket. The interplay of the BMW eDrive propulsion concept also inspires with its impressive dynamics. Thanks to its combination of electric motor, lithium-ion high-performance battery and intelligent energy management it provides an inspiringly agile driving experience and breath-taking acceleration. When driven purely electrically, it is completely free of local emissions. Find out more about the BMW plug-in hybrid vehicles and take a look ahead at tomorrow’s future-oriented projects.

BMW VISION M NEXT.

The electrified future of the brand BMW M starts now – with the BMW Vision M Next. This visionary plug-in hybrid is proof that digital intelligence makes the self-determined driving experience even purer and more emotional. Its exterior underlines this aspiration with sports car proportions while the interior consistently places the driver at the centre of attention. And the driving experience itself is just as impressive as the external appearance: the Power-PHEV drive of the BMW Vision M NEXT provides the options of carrying out the journey with electric all-wheel drive or in puristic style with rear-wheel drive. Even more power is available at the touch of a button with the so-called BOOST+ mode. The range in purely electric driving mode extends up to 100 km – in most cases this is sufficient to cover a large proportion of journeys purely electrically. Consequently, the BMW Vision M NEXT is also a future-proof sports car for inner cities with potential zero-emissions zones and adds a new dimension to sporty driving pleasure.

*The published fuel consumption and CO2 emission figures are established according to legislated technical specifications (UNECE Regulation 101/UN Regulation 83 and SANS 20101 standards), which sets out the procedures that are used to measure the CO2 emissions and fuel consumption. The claimed figures are established using specific tests under standardised, carefully controlled conditions and may differ from consumption achieved under real world conditions with the influences of altitude, road surface, geographic conditions, vehicle options, temperature, humidity, tyres size and driving behaviour amongst others. EU Unladen mass refers to a vehicle with standard equipment, with 90% fuel tank fill, including a driver (68 kg) and luggage (7 kg). Optional extras and accessories will generally increase this figure and as a result affect some of the technical figures, in specific fuel consumption and CO2 emissions. Please contact your preferred authorised BMW dealer or BMW South Africa (Pty) Ltd. for information on vehicles that are available for sale, and the various specifications and options of vehicles that are available.
