BMW Electric Cars

We have a range of electric cars from BMW available on our all inclusive monthly subscription model. Read on for more info on our range and BMW’s history in the EV space.

Why you should drive a BMW electric car

BMW is one of the most sought-after car brands in the world that offers dynamic performance and sporty handling. 

This is reflected in BMW’s range of electric cars, which retain BMW’s performance, style and high quality of materials. The BMW i3 electric hatchback is a great example of BMW’s innovative electric range that despite being around since 2013, still manages to look and feel more advanced than its rivals. Fun and relaxing to drive, it offers strong performance coupled with a highly efficient powertrain.

How long has BMW been producing EVs?

BMW has been researching and developing electric cars for over 40 years. In 2011, a sub-brand of BMW (BMW i) was founded to design and manufacture plug-in electric vehicles. Two vehicles were initially released: the i3 all-electric car and the i8 plug-in hybrid. In late 2020, the electric iX3 SUV was released, followed by the iX SUV and the i4 all-electric liftback sedan later in 2021.  

Why driving an EV is great

There are plenty of reasons why driving an electric car is great, and benefits not only you as the driver, but also the environment.

While BMW produces great petrol and diesel cars, the benefits of an EV mean they’re the perfect choice for drivers looking to make the switch to electric:

  • There are far fewer moving parts in an EV, which means maintaining them is cheaper and there’s less that can potentially go wrong
  • Charging an EV is quick and simple – by using a rapid charge point, you can charge your EV’s battery to 80% in as little as 20 minutes
  • EVs are far kinder to the environment, and by using green energy to charge the battery they can be completely carbon neutral after manufacture
  • Compared to petrol and diesel, the cost of charging an EV is considerably cheaper than a tank of fuel

An alternative to buying is a BMW subscription through elmo.

An elmo electric car subscription includes insurance, service, MOT, and breakdown cover costs, meaning driving a DS EV of your own is more affordable than ever.
