Introducing the BMW 2 Series Plug-in Hybrid
The large BMW 2 Series family now includes a plug-in hybrid vehicle in the Active Tourer bodystyle.
As a five-seater family car, the 2 Series Active Tourer is suitably practical and efficient. Add in the plug-in hybrid powertrain and you have got yourself the perfect family run-around.
Just think, most families will be able to complete several school runs in all-electric mode, with zero tailpipe emissions, on a single charge. When it does come to charging, the vehicle can easily be charged overnight; removing the worry of setting off earlier for the school run to visit the dreaded fuel station with children on-board.
Range and Performance
Pure electric mode can be maintained in the BMW 225xe Active Tourer Plug-in Hybrid for a range of up to 32 miles.
Average UK daily commuters will be able to get to work and back on a single charge, which really is a cost-effective transport solution. If the daily commute exceeds 32 miles there is no need to panic as the TwinPower Turbo three-cylinder petrol engine will engage and work in conjunction with the eDrive electric motor to reach the destination.
Producing a combined power output of 221bhp, the Active Tourer Plug-in Hybrid can hit 62mph from zero in 6.7 seconds, whilst delivering up to 166.2mpg (WLTP combined).
Accompanying the 225xe Active Tourer is the standard BMW charging cable and a BMW AC Fast Charging Cable (Type 2). These cables provide the user with plenty of charging options.
Home charging tends to be the most convenient way for the majority to charge their plug-in hybrid 2 Series, and with the BMW i Wallbox Connect the battery can be charged from empty to 80 percent capacity in just 2.4 hours. Without the Wallbox, conventional plug sockets can be used but the charging time will be slower.
Charging the 2 Series PHEV whilst out and about is easier than ever, thanks to the thousands of public charging stations located around the UK. Also, in the UK, the BMW mobility service, ChargeNow, provides access to over 7,000 partner charging stations..
Test drive the BMW 2 Series Plug-in Hybrid
Hassle-free, cost-effective and enjoyable driving at its finest; the BMW 225xe Active Tourer Plug-in Hybrid really makes sense as an economical and practical family car.
It is big enough to fit the family comfortably, as well as their luggage, but is still small enough to park and navigate through cities or rural roads.
