BMW Plug-In Hybrid Lineup

Searching for a more efficient solution to your daily commute from Murrieta to Corona? Electric and plug-in hybrid vehicles are a fantastic option that is not only economical but also eco-friendly, as they produce fewer or zero emissions while you drive. In addition to the all-electric BMW i3, there is a robust lineup of BMW plug-in hybrid vehicles that includes some of your favorite luxury sedan and SAV® models! Explore the full range of BMW hybrid cars with BMW of Murrieta to find the one that’s right for you.

What is a BMW Hybrid Plug-In?

Electric vehicles like the BMW i3 run on an all-electric motor, meaning they use absolutely no gasoline. Plug-in hybrids use both electric power and gas power. There is a fuel tank in the car, as well as a charging port. You can drive on all-electric power for a certain number of miles, and the vehicle will switch to gas power automatically when you run out of electric power. Just like you can stop at any gas station in Riverside when you need to fuel up, there are plenty of public charging stations where you can stop to charge the battery when it’s low.

BMW Plug-In Hybrid SUVs

Currently, the lineup of BMW plug-in hybrid SUVs includes the BMW X3 and the BMW X5. Get to know their specs, below:

2021 BMW X3 Hybrid (X3 xDrive30e) – Starting at $49,600 MSRP

The BMW X3 Hybrid is versatile enough to keep up with your on-the-go lifestyle! It has enough electric range to run errands in Ontario, but if your adventurous whims take you far from the beaten path you can travel with confidence knowing your X3 will switch directly over to gas power when needed. Depending on where you’re headed and how many miles you’re going, you can also switch between three intelligent electric drive modes to make the most of the available power: Auto eDrive, Max eDrive, and Battery Control.
