100% electric. 100% driving pleasure. 100% BMW.

Did you know that back at the Summer Olympic Games of 1972 held in Munich an all-electric BMW 1602e drove ahead of the athletes in the endurance events in order to film them and supply them with water as necessary? Emission-free and silent, it was the ideal companion at the time and did not obstruct the competitors in achieving their top performances. Today, almost five decades later, we have perfected this capability as well as our know-how in the field of electrified mobility through continuous development of the BMW eDrive technology and the BMW i sub-brand. With our all-electric models BMW iX, BMW iX3, BMW i3 and BMW i3s, you experience an entirely new sensation of sheer driving pleasure. After all, nothing compares with the feeling of gliding almost silently through urban or rural traffic, the instant response of the electric engine and unique acceleration from stand-still. And all of this is free of exhaust fumes and local emissions. Join us to explore the world of BMW electric cars.

  • What is an electric car?
    BMW e-mobility BMW electric car FAQ

    A purely electric car (BEV, Battery Electric Vehicle) drives exclusively with electricity. It therefore has no combustion engine to power the vehicle. The electricity is stored in a battery. Its capacity determines the range of the e-car, in other words the distance that can be covered with one battery charge.
    Many drivers worry about the range – in most cases such worries are unfounded. After all, most BEVs today have a range of more than 250 kilometres. 
    Purely electric cars are ideal for users who can charge electric cars at work or at home. At the same time, the extension of the public charging infrastructure is being pursued intensively. New charging stations are therefore appearing all the time in urban areas and along highways. This also includes a large number of high-power charging stations for ultra-fast charging while travelling. In the future, long-distance journeys will become easier and easier as a result.

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

    Official data on fuel consumption, CO2 emissions, power consumption and electric range were determined in accordance with the mandatory measurement procedure and comply with Regulation (EU) 715/2007 valid at the time of type approval. In case of a range, figures in the WLTP take into account any optional equipment. For newly type-tested vehicles since 01.01.2021, the official data no longer exist according to NEDC, but only according to WLTP. For more information on the WLTP and NEDC measurement procedures, see
