BMW Hybrid Cars

BMW Hybrids

Many drivers in the Bedford area are looking for vehicles that leave a smaller environmental footprint. That is why the popularity of hybrid cars and electric cars has skyrocketed in recent years. Throughout the BMW lineup, you can find a number of fuel-efficient options, including plug-in hybrid cars and electric cars. Learn what sets the two vehicle classes apart, and then explore your options with Tulley BMW of Manchester. 

What is a Hybrid Car? 

So, what is a hybrid car? These special vehicles feature more than one method of propulsion. In most cases, a gasoline engine is paired with an electric motor. Because of this, hybrid cars often offer better fuel economy than their non-hybrid counterparts. Listed below are just a few advanced features that help many of the hybrid cars currently on the market achieve their impressive fuel economy figures. 

  • Automatic Start/Stop: When the vehicle comes to a stop, the engine shuts off until the accelerator is pressed once again. 
  • Regenerative Braking: This feature helps conserve energy from the vehicle that is typically wasted when braking or coasting. The forward motion of the wheels helps to turn the motor.
  • Electric Motor Assistance: In some hybrid cars, the electric motor can be used on its own to propel the vehicle on the roads of Londonderry. The gasoline engine can kick in once the electric motor has reached the end of its range. 

What is a Plug-In Hybrid? 

What is a plug-in hybrid, and how does it vary from traditional hybrid cars? Plug-in hybrid cars use gasoline and battery-powered electricity in conjunction with one another. Depending on what engine is under the hood, the vehicle can be powered by the battery, gasoline, or both simultaneously. A 120-volt outlet can often be used to charge the vehicle at home, although available 240-volt chargers and public charging stations can charge a vehicle more rapidly. 

BMW Hybrid Cars and Electric Cars
