FAQs

What are the best BMW electric vehicles?

You currently have a choice of two sedans and an SUV when looking to buy a BMW EV. The i4 is popular for its good mileage and reasonable asking price. It’s still very premium in quality and surprisingly quick. However, the electric version of the 7 Series, the i7, is far more powerful than its gas-powered variant, giving it almost sports car-like performance with 536 horsepower on tap. The iX is a practical SUV that offers a supremely comfortable ride along with competitive all-electric range.

What kind of mileage do BMW EVs get?

Models with higher performance specs might fall a bit behind in terms of fuel economy, but even they compare quite well to other segment leaders. The lightweight I4 is the best of the bunch, with 109/108/109 mpg-equivalent across the city/highway/combined cycles. It also has a decent range of 301 miles.

How long does it take to charge a BMW EV?

The smaller 93.9-kWh battery in the i4 takes a little over eight hours to charge on a 240-volt outlet or half an hour on a DC fast charger. With a larger 111.5-kWh battery, the iX takes an extra two hours to charge on a 240-volt outlet.

What is the price of new BMW electric cars?
