Are BMW plug-in hybrids reliable?
The BMW 3 Series Saloon PHEV is a reliable car as it relies on the power of a fuel and electric engine. This can help soothe concerns about the range of an electric vehicle by also having the petrol or diesel engine to get you where you need to be when your battery is low.
How long do BMW PHEV batteries last?
The BMW 3 Series Saloon PHEV range is around 32-36 miles, releasing zero emissions. Wondering “what happens to a hybrid vehicle when the battery dies?”. If your battery empties enroute, the dual-drivetrain system enables the petrol or diesel engine so you can carry on. It’s worth noting that although hybrids can be economical, if your battery is rarely charged and often empty, its extra weight means the standard fuel engine has to work harder.
How long will a PHEV battery last?
The BMW 2 Series PHEV range is around 49 miles, however, if your journey is longer than 49 miles, the 3-cylinder petrol engine will work alongside the eDrive electric motor to get you where you need to be. While having a hybrid can be economical both on fuel and your wallet, if the battery isn’t always topped up, the extra weight of the batteries over a standard petrol or diesel car often means the engine is working harder when there's no charge left.
Do plug-in hybrids charge while driving?
No, they don’t. Plug-in hybrids need to be charged from a socket or charging point. You will gain a little bit of charge from coasting and regenerative braking however this won’t help contribute towards a full charge of battery. It just slightly tops it up or helps the battery charge level decrease slower.
